It's no secret that LG has something planned for Mobile World Congress this month (it mentioned an event weeks ago), but the Korean tech giant is now making it clear as to what's up. It's posting teasers confirming a G5 unveiling just ahead of MWC, on February 21st. Yes, that's the same day that Samsung announces the Galaxy S7 -- unlike last year, LG isn't waiting until sometime after the big mobile trade show to debut its latest flagship smartphone.

The company is shy on details right now, although history suggests that it'll dribble out facts to whet your appetite. That isn't stopping the rumor mill, though. Historically reliable leaker Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) hears that the G5 may borrow a few pages from the V10, including a secondary display, a fingerprint reader and a dual-lens camera (this time, on the back). You might also get a speedier Snapdragon 820 processor, an "all-metal" enclosure and a "Magic Slot" that alters your phone's functionality through modules. If this is accurate, the G5 definitely won't be a me-too device.
