LG's G5 might pack a killer Sony camera

LG's G5 smartphone is unlikely to surface within the next six months, but the rumour mill is already in gear.

Reports suggest that the Android handset is upping its camera game with the inclusion of a Sony-made 20-megapixel sensor on the rear.

It also promises to be a powerful beast, with a Snapdragon 820 processor running the show, according to Mihai Matei of G for Games.

File this one under rumour for now, but Matei's sources have proven accurate in the past, bringing us solid information about Apple's hardware plans.

Previous reports suggest that the LG G5 will embrace recent developments in biometric security with the inclusion of iris-scanning technology.

Expect to hear more about the device during the tail end of 2015, ahead of its unveiling early next year.
