In a teaser posted on its official Facebook page, LG has confirmed that the upcoming LG G5 will feature an always-on display. The feature was teased in the form of a GIF that shows several smartphone screens slowly fading to black before an outline of the G5 appears, showing off the time and notifications in a manner akin to the ambient and active displays we've seen from Google and Motorola, respectively.
It will be interesting to see just how far LG has chosen to go with its definition of "always," particularly if the display on the G5 is similar to the secondary screen on the V10, which can be configured to always show the time and more. Regardless, the company has confirmed that it will unveil the G5 on February 21, a day ahead of the start of Mobile World Congress, so we should know much more soon.
