LG to announce a 5G smartphone with Snapdragon 855 at MWC 2019

LG’s next mainstream flagship phone won’t come with 5G connectivity and the company will instead launch a separate 5G handset during this year’s MWC at Barcelona. The information comes straight from LG, so it’s official as it gets.

The company also adds that the phone will feature a big copper vapor chamber, which will be 2.7 times the size of the one on the LG V40 ThinQ and will hold twice the amount of coolant. This will significantly improve the cooling capabilities of the 5G-capable LG smartphone while utilizing the full potential of the Snapdragon 855 SoC.

Moreover, the phone is expected to appear with 4,000 mAh battery and LG promises the 5G modem won’t affect battery life in a negative way.
