If you don’t own one of the newest handsets, waiting for the latest version of Android to hit your device can be pretty frustrating to say the least.

It’s safe to say that LG’s done a pretty poor job of keeping its upcoming flagship smartphone of 2016 under wraps. We first caught wind of the G5 when the South Korean company sent out invitations to an event it’s holding on Sunday, February 21, then a leaked User Agent profile surfaced online disclosing the handset’s model number, and last week a report was published, together with some purported renders, exhibiting the device featuring an all-metal build and a slide out battery not dissimilar to the BlackBerry Priv’s hardware keyboard.

Yesterday, LG sent out invites to a press event it’s holding on Thursday, February 21 in Barcelona, Spain.
