LG_G3_Back_Slanted_LG_Logo_02_TA

At MWC 2016, LG will host an event in Barcelona to introduce a “major smartphone” that many expect to be named the company’s next flagship, the G5. Among the changes to its design will be the relocation of the volume rocker to the side while the power button, which will double as a fingerprint scanner, remains on the rear. So it seems that LG is creating a hybrid of the G4 and traditional phones.

Mobile Fun, an accessories designer based in the United Kingdom, says it knows what the G5 looks like and is already designing cases for it. The only problem is that the G5 isn’t real yet and Mobile Fun admitted that LG hasn’t said anything to them regarding any upcoming phone.

Assuming Evan Blass is again correct and Samsung releases its next flagship in the United States on March 11, we’re going to see the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge debut next month. The launch will likely come at MWC 2016 in February, but the leaks and rumors have been happening for months and will continue through the moment we actually see Samsung unveil new hardware. Over the weekend, Nader apparently gained information regarding the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge from a person that claims to be an employee of Samsung.

This person is either a grand liar or an employee who really wants to grab headlines by spilling Samsung’s plans for its upcoming phones. Actually, both of those are possible. My point is that you should be cautious in believing what follows below. And, in all honestly, the source isn’t giving anything we’re too unfamiliar with.

Samsung hasn’t released a Galaxy A9 Pro in the past so take this rumor with a grain of salt. You may recall Samsung’s Galaxy A-series, which is made up of the A3, A5, A7 and A9. Each year Samsung updates the series with new models. However, this year Samsung may include a new member, the Galaxy A9 Pro. This may be a backup plan in case the other models don’t sell well.
