LG G5 to feature "Always ON" display

LG G5 Always ON official teaser

This flagship launches later this month and, according to the latest official teaser, features a display with always-on capabilities.

LG G5 has been in the rumor mill for a while and now its official launch is less than two weeks away. According to a recent official teaser, this next-gen flagship will feature an always-on display, one similar to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 flagships. Unfortunately, it looks like LG's high-end handset will not feature the same AMOLED display technology as its direct competitor, but that remains to be seen.

The teaser posted by LG Mobile on Twitter does not reveal much, but Android Authority's sources claim the screen of the LG G5 will be literally always on. On the other hand, existing handsets with always-on capabilities like the Nexus 6P or the Moto X only show the info when the user performs certain gestures. The same source also reveals that, instead of an AMOLED display, the LG G5 will employ a full-size version of the secondary display currently used by the LG V10.

LG G5 will officially launch on February 21st, but we will surely hear more about it until then. As soon as that happens, we will get back to it as well, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
