LG G5 SE! Sound familiar? Bet it does, after all it sounds so similar to the iPhone SE. Oh, wait its doesn't come with a 4.7 inch display though. Yet the all new LG G5 SE is pretty similar to the iPhone SE in many respects.
Recently a new variant of the LG G5 was spotted clearing certification test which created many a rumours regarding the alleged smartphone. Soon after reports regarding the LG G5 SE came up which hinted that the smartphone will be launched exclusively in Latin America, China and some parts of CIS including Russia. Now the Korean electronics giant has finally confirmed the existence of this new smartphone. Besides that, fresh information has emerged which gives off some valuable inputs regarding the internals of the smartphone.
Just like the LG G5, the G5 SE sports a 5.3 inch Quad HD (2160x1440p) display upfront. This is quite strange considering the fact that LG is referring to their smartphone as the ‘SE'. Probably a cool new marketing strategy.
The main difference between the LG G5 SE and its bigger sibling lies in the chipset department. Unlike the original LG G5 which comes with a Snapdragon 820 SoC, the LG G5 SE sports a lower powered SD652 chip. This is the same chip as found in the recently launch HTC 10 Lifestyle and the Vivo V3 Max.
To keep the costs down, LG will be including a smaller RAM under the hood. Instead of 4GB, LG G5 SE will pack 3GB RAM. However, it's worth noting that even a 3GB RAM is adept in handling most of your multitasking usage.
One of the main talking point of the LG G5 was the dual rear camera setup. Well, the LG G5 SE too will boast of the same camera module. Besides that, the G5 SE will sport the same 8MP selfie snapper on the front.
Apart from the camera, the additive modules including the LG Cam Plus, Hi-Fi Plus etc. were the much touted feature of the latest flagship smartphone from LG. Incidentally the LG G5 SE too will support these modules. In fact, the external build of the smartphone will be similar to its costlier and more powerful sibling.
