Special media events are scheduled before the start of the Mobile World Congress 2016, and it looks like both the LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 are going to make their way into the release.

It seems that the LG G5 is going to compete with Samsung Galaxy S7 and set the date for its Launch on February 21. According to Inferse, this shows the old rivalry between both companies as LG typically launches their mobile phones after the MWC. Its advanced scheduling shows how aggressive they are being at choosing to launch the G5 hours ahead of the Galaxy S7.

So what can we expect from both phones?

According to Value Walk, the LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 will both come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and will run with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The actual phone design is also similar. It was noted that both devices have a primarily metallic design. This serves as a nod for the Korean brand as Samsing is already known for shying away from the plastic feel that many other phones are still sporting.

The G5 will come with either a 3 or 4GB memory with a 32Gb, 64BG, or 128GB storage, while the S7 is said to have a 4GB memory with an internal storage option of either 32 or 64GB. Fortunately for heavy phone users, both models are said to support SD cards.

For its camera, the G5 is expected to be more appealing to social media users as it is rumored to come with a 20-megapixel camera and a unique dual-camera sort of setup. It will also have OIS, laser auto-focus, and dual LED flash technologies.

Samsung's phone is less impressive with its 12-megapixel rear cam, although there are no other details released regarding its shutter, so it may still prove to be in competition with LG.

For the actual display, LG is considering a 4K display for its next generation gadget, while Samsung is said to stick to the Quad HD, which has been the usual for the Galaxy S series as of late.

Value Walk noted that Samsung is slowly being threatened in Asia as more affordable phones are coming to the market. LG, on the other hand, has been well-recieved critically, making this face-off a close call as far as phones are concerned.

With regards to LG's aggressive marketing, it looks like the company is ready to give Samsung a run for their money. Prices have not been released yet, but which phone are you interested in?
