Latest images may be LG G5 under cover


Some new, leaked images have surfaced on the Internet claiming to be the forthcoming LG G5 housed in a dummy cover to help conceal the overall look as well as details of the device. The presence of a dummy cover means no identifying marks are visible to help verify whether the device is even from LG. The details that are visible appear to be consistent with previous information we have learned about LG’s new flagship smartphone.

The biggest clue to the device in the images being the LG G5 are the details from the back of the device. They show a dual camera setup with flash and focusing system components in between the lenses. Located immediately below that is what appears to be a round button thought to be a fingerprint scanner. All of this is consistent with renders generated after an individual was able to view an actual prototype from LG.


The other pictures of this mystery device focus on the edges. One shows a microSD card slot accessed on one side while a shot of the bottom shows a USB-C connector and a speaker opening. In one big change for LG, one image shows the volume rocker being located to the side of the device instead of being located in the middle of the back.

LG is expected to reveal the LG G5 in February, likely at MWC 2016.
