LG Germany will begin selling the previously announced mainstream LG G5 SE for a starting price that is higher than the current G5 flagship.

The flagship LG G5 will likely receive an Android 7.0 Nougat update this coming November according to Australian mobile provider Optus. Exactly when the update will be coming to the rest of the world, however, remains to be seen.

In the meantime, LG will be launching the mainstream LG G5 SE variant to certain European territories. This particular model was announced back in April of this year with no plans to enter the German market, but official resellers in the country are now listing the G5 SE for approximately 500 Euros including Amazon, Cyberport, Media Markt, and Otto. Interestingly, this means that the starting price of the new G5 SE is more expensive than the current price of the flagship G5 now retailing for about 430 Euros.

Core specifications for the G5 SE are largely similar to the existing G5 including the 5.3-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution display, MicroSD slot with support for up to 2 TB cards, 8/16 MP rear cameras, 8 MP front camera, USB Type-C port, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.2. Perhaps most importantly, the 2800 mAh battery remains removable for supporting optional accessories. The Snapdragon 820 SoC of the G5 has been dropped in favor of the more mainstream Snapdragon 652 MSM8976 while RAM has been cut from 4 GB to 3 GB.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
