Things are certainly going to heat up at Mobile World Congress this year as two Korean giants are gearing up to showcase their flagships. LG dropped a hint on its official social media about ‘always on’ display on upcoming flagship G5. With this device, LG is all set to welcome an entirely new design as hinted in some of the previous reports.
The display on new LG G5 will always display basic information like notification alerts, time and date in black and white while remaining display will remain black when phone is not in use. Of course, we have seen similar tech in the past, in the form of Motorola and Google’s Ambient display or Microsoft’s Glance Screen, but LG has allegedly taken a different root and will be introducing a new screen technology with G5.

LG with this teaser has fueled a debate in tech-community on whether G5 flaunts an OLED display or not. As per the theory, for ‘always on’ type feature OLEDs are much more suited since they don’t rely upon conventional backlights and are more power-efficient. However, Android Authority claims do not match with this general theory. It has categorically stated that G5 won’t feature an OLED display.
