LG is likely to launch the LG G5 at Mobile World Congress in February. It has said that it will launch a "flagship smartphone."

LG is sending out invites to a media event at Mobile World Congress (MWC) on February 21st.

The invite says “Play Begins” and features a jack-in-the-box music player in the background. An e-mail invite that is also doing the rounds confirms that we’ll see a new flagship. “We would like to invite you to the unveiling of LG's next flagship model at MWC,” it states.

It looks like we’ll be seeing the LG G5 much earlier than expected. This makes sense as LG tries to distance its releases from its competitors. Last year, both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M9 managed to get a headstart on LG’s offering.

There have been plenty of leaks in recent weeks about LG’s upcoming flagship. It will reportedly feature a Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. It’s expected to have a 5.4-inch Quad HD display and pack the 120-degree wide LG V10's dual selfie camera.

All will be revealed on February 21st.
