LG G5 will have an ‘Always On’ display

As Mobile World Congress approaches, leaks and teased details about upcoming smartphones are beginning to trickle out. We already know the upcoming flagship phone from LG will be called the G5, that it will be unveiled on February 21st, and we have a pretty good idea what it will look like.

And now, this week, after hearing that Samsung has trademarked the term “Always On Display” for the Galaxy S7, we have a teaser from LG suggesting the phone’s display will also be capable of displaying relevant information while the phone is locked. This information includes the time and date, as well as notifications like missed calls, new messages and alerts from apps.

It’s still unclear how the feature will work, but since several other companies already offer similar functionality in their devices, it’s likely to function in a similar way.

We’re less than two weeks away from Mobile World Congress, which means we’ll find out about LG’s upcoming G5 soon enough.
