LG G5 SE is real and it comes with Snapdragon 625 processor

We heard a few weeks ago that LG is planning to launch a more affordable version of the G5 smartphone. It’s no longer a rumour now. On Thursday LG officially announced the phone in Russia. It is similar to the high-end G5, which was announced at Mobile World Congress, except for its processor. Unlike the Snapdragon 820 that powers the G5, the SE version uses Snapdragon 625. It also has 3GB RAM compared to 4GB that users will get with the G5.

But in terms of feature set, the G5 and the G5 SE look similar. Both have 5.3-inch screen with QHD display, 32GB internal storage and same design. The dual camera set-up with one 16-megapixel primary camera and the other an 8-megapixel wide-lens camera that we saw in the G5 is also there in the SE. Both phones have the same 2,800 mAh battery, fingerprint scanner and features like modular slot to connect accessories. LG is not the only company that has announced a Snapdragon 625-powered phone which is similar to its high-end flagship Android device. Recently when HTC announced the HTC 10, it also unveiled the HTC 10 Lifestyle, a phone with more modest hardware and the Snapdragon 625 processor.

The idea behind launching more mainstream versions of the high-end phones is to offer a device that is more affordable and yet has the design and most of the features similar to those provided in the more expensive high-end phones. Although, for now it is not clear how consumers will perceive these “high-end” phones with more modest hardware. The LG 5 was globally announced in February.

Although the phone seems to fall somewhat short of challenging the likes of the HTC 10 and the Galaxy S7, one of the big bets that LG took with it is its modular design.

The Korean company had launched two accessories — one a camera grip and other a high-resolution audio player — that could be plugged into the G5 to transform it into a more versatile phone.
