Timing is everything — and money, too. Samsung seems to be biding its time in pushing out the Galaxy S7. Sony will probably launch the Xperia Z6 two minutes from now … not really. What about LG? It’s been pulling its primary flagship launches up earlier and earlier from the summer and into the spring. We may now see it come down to cold, old winter.

Specifically, a new Weibo post from Chinese tech blog site ZEALER is throwing the dart on the calendar as to when the G5 will come out. Apparently, it landed on February.

Citing Korean industrial sources, the post goes on to list the specs we’ve heard before: a Snapdragon 820 SoC with Adreno 530 GPU, a 21/8 split on the front/back camera megapixel count, a 5.6 inch quad-HD display with an iris scanner “cherry” on top.

But it’s that new due date that catches our attention. Will it make Mobile World Congress in February? Or will it go all Samsung-like and have some fun outside of Barcelona? We’ll have to be there and see.
