A G5 Spigen case render zooms in on the rear of LG's next big thing
We can always count on case maker Spigen to conceal an upcoming flagship in one of its case renders, revealing at least a bit of the final expected design for us to marvel at, and it didn't disappoint, this time with the LG G5. This high-end handset is expected to be announced on the same day with the Galaxy S7, showing how comfortable LG is to take on almighty Samsung head-on this year, and is expected to features a brand new design to boot. 

Spigen has relayed all the rumors we've heard so far about the chassis in a case render - we have the volume buttons moved on the side, the circular finger scanner on the back, and the large camera area which houses two lenses, a laser and infrared autofocus systems, as well as two LED flash units, armed and ready. 

Judging from the case render, the G5 may also sport a very good screen-to-body ratio, but we'll know for certain only when LG takes the stage in two weeks or so. We'll be there, camera in hand, to relay to you all the festive atmosphere of the announcement. Spigen says that the case will be in stock at the end of March, so there might be a few weeks between the G5 unveiling, and its actual release to retailers and carrier portfolios, as usual.

LG, HTC and Samsung all do it. They ruin the front of the phone because they expect you to advertise their product and they're not even paying you. It's a big turnoff to me.

Well, at least the users have the option to cover it up with a case and have a clean front.

That huge fruit logo looks a lot better than the tramp stamp. Don't be a salty hater.

apple should remove its logo from the back of the phone as well, right, no, its the same with everything, if you invent something you want you brand name to be front and center, its only natural.

That is not a picture of the actual G5, it's a stock front image.

I prefer the curved design with rear keys. Curved top and bottom. Curved screen. Physically
