LG G5 always on display teaser does the rounds

For the longest time, LG‘s flagship smartphones have played second (or third, or fourth) fiddle to Samsung’s Galaxy S devices, but have always been very impressive in their own right. In particular, LG always tries to incorporate little features that might differentiate it from its competitors. For its next device, this is manifesting as the LG G5 always on display, and a teaser gif was posted from LG’s official Facebook account earlier today:

LG G5 always on displayAs you might imagine, an “Always ON” feature would allow the device to keep notification and time information on the screen with minimal battery power which is possible thanks to OLED technology (lighting up part of the screen while keeping the rest off). We’ve seen iterations of this like the Active Display on Motorola devices, which lights up the display when the device is picked up, but none have tried to keep the display on constantly due to battery concerns.

Whether this means LG has a sufficiently large battery in its LG G5 remains to be seen, but the Korean outfit presumably thinks they’re on to something with this latest gimmick. Thankfully we’ll only have to wait till the 21st to find out all about their new device.
