This isn’t the first time case renders have appeared showing off design traits of the soon to be announced LG G5. Spigen, one of the most popular case brands, posted a new case on the Amazon marketplace to fit LG’s next flagship smartphone.
This case leak gives us a clear image at what to expect the front and rear of the G5 to look like. LG is planning to introduce some major design changes with the G5 and the leaked case pretty much confirms it.
The leaked case shows a design right on par with recent leaks and reports. You can bet that LG will include dual-camera lenses on the back with a rear-facing LED flash between the two. Instead of having the power button on the back, a fingerprint scanner will seemingly take its place. The volume controls are also moving. The buttons will now be on the side, rather than the rear. The opposite side or top, currently unknown, will house the power button. Most interestingly, there’s no cutout on the back for a speaker grill, and it doesn’t appear to be on the front either. This suggests that the speaker will be moved to the bottom of the device.
Nothing will be official until LG holds its unveiling. This is set to take place on February 21, just hours prior to Samsung’s Unpacked event. Both devices will be showcased at MWC 2016, which will begin the following day. The Spigen case will be available in mid-March, thus suggesting an early launch for the G5. We’ll see what happens.
