LG is going to launch the G5 flagship on February 21 with Always On display mode besides other impressive features. The MWC launch of the LG G5 was announced last week but without information about its features. In a follow-up hint, LG revealed some of the G5 features including the Always On display mode.
With the Always On display mode your smartphone display will remain literally always on for certain notifications like missed calls, new messages and emails. But the notifications are displayed without actually turning the entire screen of the device on. This helps reducing battery juice consumption to a large extent.
The Always On feature is however not new, some of Motorola and Google devices are already equipped with similar display mode but with different names. The feature is dubbed as Active Display on Motorola smartphones and Ambient Display on Google Nexus handsets.
Samsung is also expected to join the race with a similar display mode on its upcoming Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Both of the upcoming Galaxy devices are set to unveil on the same day besides LG G5. We may find a chance to compare the Active display on the LG G5 with its Samsung variant on the Galaxy S7 devices.
The fresh image released to present the Always On features on the LG G5 also suggests some hints about the device itself. Though the official details are just a few, the LG G5 has been discussed in different rumored and leaked diagrams for its design concept. The image showing Always On display mode suggests the leaked reports about the LG G5 design have been accurate.
LG G5 is expected to be significantly different from the preceding LG G4 and LG G3. According to rumors the LG G5 will be made out of metal. With Always On display mode the G5 will also offer fingerprint scanner and dual camera on back.
