LG Electronics will reportedly unveil its first 5G smartphone – equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 – at Mobile World Congress next month.

Incorporating Qualcomm’s fastest chipset yet, LG asserts Snapdragon 855 is 45% faster than its predecessor – e.g. facilitating immersive high-resolution gaming and better multi-app usage.

Designed to reduce overheating, the phone claims to feature a ‘vapor chamber’ 2.7 times bigger than the V40 ThinQ, coupled with a 4,000mAh battery.

The news comes as LG seeks to resurrect its struggling mobile division, with rivals such as Huawei and Samsung also unveiling 5G smartphones this year.
