LG Inc. could release the LG G5 as their next flagship device next year. The phone is also expected to house top-of-the-class features and could be the basis of the Nexus 2016.

According to Venture Capital Post, the latest mobile device from LG could be released in February to coincide with the Mobile World Congress, which will take place between February 22 - February 25, 2016. There are rumors that say LG G5 could be launch in CES 2016, but it only came from unconfirmed sources.

The fifth generation of LG G series is also believed to compete against Samsung's Galaxy G7.

The all-new flagship device of LG will sport a 5.6-inch QHD display and a metallic body rather than the optional leather-based one. The likely reason for this feature could be attributed to another LG device that was launched this year, the LG V10.

For its processing capabilities, it will house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor as most upcoming phones are reportedly leaning on. In addition to that, it will have the latest Adreno 530 GPU and 3GB of RAM.

Aside for its powerful internal features, the phone has also tough security features. Latinos Post said LG G5 will have security biometrics and eye-scanning technology that stand to beef up the security measures of the phone. It will also have a fingerprint reader, which became a common feature in the latest gadgets.

Most of phone buyers today want to get a device that have great camera. In the case of LG G5, it will boast a 21-megapixel main camera with a large ½-inch sensor. If this is true, the camera is a big improvement from the ½.6-inch 16 MP camera that the LG G4 carried.

For its front-cam, there are reports that say the LG G5 will sport an 8 MP front-facing shooter.

In the same article from Venture Capital Post, it says the new handset is rumored to feature QHD resolution IPS LCD display, with 1440x2560 pixels screen resolution. Moreover, it will have a battery with a power capacity of 3000 to 3500mAh.

For the latest news about Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for LG G4 here are the details. According to Android Pit, the update is currently in "rolling out" status.

 LG G4 users in Poland reportedly began receiving the update in October, but the company experienced some technical difficulties, and the update was stopped for a moment. In late November, however, users across Europe began reporting that the Android Marshmallow update was beginning to arrive on their devices.

Users can check their devices to know if they are part of the rollout using LG Bridge, the company's PC sync software.
