These LG G5 protective cases may give us another look at the smartphone
While LG has yet to confirm anything about its upcoming G5 flagship smartphone, we may already have an idea of what the handset looks like, thanks to these leaked renders, and this leaked diagram. Over the week-end, we even saw what could be an LG G5 prototype hidden inside a dummy box. Today, more leaked G5 images have been unveiled, this time showing what might be the new smartphone inside protective cases of different colors.

As you can see below, these LG G5 protective cases suggest that the device has a fingerprint scanner on the back, just below the rear camera, while its volume buttons are situated on the left side. That's certainly in line with what was previously said about the smartphone. The leaked images also show the front of the device, though there's no way of telling if that's what the real product will look like, of if this is just a placeholder.

These case seem to be ready to ship on February 28 via Amazon. LG is seemingly planning to announce the G5 on February 21 at MWC 2016, so it could start selling it on February 28. The new smartphone should be made out of metal, unlike its predecessors (G4, G3, etc). Of course, for now, we can't be certain of anything. But we'll be here to let you know all about the LG G5 as soon as official details arrive.

I think they are all fake, because
1. How would one increase or decrease volume in that case?
And
2. Wallpapers are exactly those of LG G4 (there is even an "LG G4 trial" icon).
So, most probably, the case seller is trying to win the "me 1st" here.

It's been leaked the phones volume will be on the side this time. Also case makers always use previous renders for the front screen

Such a shame, back buttons are so convenient to use IMO.

I personally prefer having the volume buttons on the side as it was annoying having to constantly pick up my phone to change the volume when it was lying on the table.

I would take a new G series wrapped in a G2 package. I loved the G2 and it was the perfect size. G4 feels nowhere near as good in the hands. Battery life is not even close to the G2 either.

This looks like an unfinished or early prototype. The back camera area just looks ugly and unfinished. No way something this bad looking will be released to the public by a company like LG

I look forward to LG G5 could reach IP67 or at least unbreakable display.

I am cool with the design...except Why did we take the volume keys off the back of the phone???

16mp and 8mp with tricolor led take lots of space. It even has hump on it, also for antenna. And the fingerprint sensor are embedded on power button. That's busy enough.

What about that concept of removing whole bottom part for removing the battery, hmm celinedion?? Is it true?? Just need to confirm that.

So LG is taking design cues from Huawei... honestly didn't see that one coming.

Looks like the back button experient has ended. I think this is a better move overall. Tap on/tap off worked pretty well, but I prefer my buttons on the side.
