It’s safe to say that LG’s done a pretty poor job of keeping its upcoming flagship smartphone of 2016 under wraps. We first caught wind of the G5 when the South Korean company sent out invitations to an event it’s holding on Sunday, February 21, then a leaked User Agent profile surfaced online disclosing the handset’s model number, and last week a report was published, together with some purported renders, exhibiting the device featuring an all-metal build and a slide out battery not dissimilar to the BlackBerry Priv’s hardware keyboard.

For the third time in recent weeks a leaked image purports to show the design of the camera to be included in the forthcoming OPPO N3 and this one shows the third design we have now seen for the camera. The initial leak revealed a device with a barrel type enclosure along the top edge of the device to house the camera.

Case manufacturer Spigen posted on Google+ today a render of a Nexus 5 sporting a Neo Hybrid case. The ad copy encourages fans to “Be Ready” for the Nexus 5 “Revolution.” Spigen has already obtained a listing on Amazon for the case, though most of the information was just a placeholder.

Case manufacturers and other accessory manufacturers often receive units or drawings in advance of a product launch so they can have their wares available on the day of release. The posting of this image is a good sign that we are only a few weeks away from the release of the Nexus 5.
