[Update] New LG G5 images revealed - dual rear camera and fingerprint scanner visible
Earlier this week, we told you about a few photos that allegedly showed LG's metal-made G5 in the flesh, presenting a device that's definitely different from LG's previous flagship smartphone (the G4). Now, thanks to Evan Blass (famously known as @evleaks), we get to see two new images that also seemingly show the G5.

The new images reveal the alleged LG G5's front and rear sides. Everything looks just like in the previously leaked photos: There are volume buttons on the side, and there's a bumpy dual camera on the back (alongside a fingerprint scanner), while the front hosts the LG logo, a camera, a speaker grille, and some sort of sensor below it.

Besides a different design, the LG G5 should bring various improvements over the G4, including an Always On display mode, Qualcomm's latest and greatest Snapdragon 820 processor, Bang & Olufsen audio enhancements, 4 GB of RAM, and USB Type-C port. For more, check out our LG G5 rumor review.

Truth be told, this silver / gray variant of the G5 - seen in the new images embedded below - is probably not the prettiest among those that will be available to buy. Anyway, we'll save our final judgment on the design of LG's upcoming flagship smartphone for when the device is officially announced. In case you haven't heard, the G5 will be showcased this Sunday, February 21, at MWC 2016. We'll be there to let you know all about it, so stick around!

Update: Evan Blass just posted another LG G5 render (check it out below - the fourth image). This time, the handset is white, and looks much better. The device is on, and we can see the Always On display mode that LG already talked about.

I had the LG G2, looked very nice... newer iterations however just seem uglier with a two tone front making the seem like feature phones.

i dont think anyone noticed the updated image.
the top bezel is clearly very less. There is a secondary display unnoticable in the other images. it looks much better than the other leaked images.

Also if you note the end is the same look on all of them, it's clear that the battery is going to to added to the end and come off in one go

It's going to be way better to use the wiresless charger case that SAMsung will offer, you get than get the ip68

It's not so beautiful but it definitely looks metallic. A colored one would be fine. Also there is a thing called case that 85% of people use, you know?

not so ugly in these photos. Dubai leaked photos were more ugly.

Bezels are looking pretty big. Isnt it? or I am just feel it big?

I think two different colours for top and bottom are the problem....I just hope it's 5.5in or bigger

It's because the battery comes with the the end on it, good look taking that with you in the go

If the screen is 5.6" those bezels are huge, definitely far larger than the minimal ones on the G3, while the G4 was inching in the wrong direction itself... This design team should be fired.
(Well except the battery-slot guy, you can keep him I guess).

agreed.

Also nothing bad with plastic in fact its can be more durable than metal.

Still i prefer metal phone.

LG V10 is looking much more appealing now.
Front shouldnt have had dual colors instead one Color this reminds me of feature phones and J3

LG V10 is a beautiful device. G5 is nothing as compared to V10.

V10 just needs an oled second screen and the 820 thrown in it, then perfect.

111. tyger11 (Posts: 148; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)


And wireless charging. And a 5" screen. But yeah, the second screen of the V10 is far from the most interesting thing on it; I don't know why more people aren't talking about that.

126. Furbal (Posts: 980; Member since: 22 Sep 2012)


Wireless charging backs are readily available (got mine for ~$9)

A smaller version would be nice too (specially if they can keep the 3000mah battery)

Really? I think some of the entry-level LG releases look more like a flagship. I think they dropped the ball.

The G5 is the greatest phone ever.
I can't want to replace my Samsung S5 with the G5 and leave Samsuck behind after buying every one of their phones since 2009.
Only an idiot buys a phone without a removable battery and SD.

Mate, Samsung offer a wiresless battery case with a bigger battery size than the removing battery of the G5, also the G5 battery that removes is linked to the end of the phone and can not be removed, I.e. It's very big unlike a normal removing battery

With Samsung you also get the ip68, it's just better with the the wiresless chasing case
S7 comes with sd support and ufs and will also transfer files faster than the lg phone and will also charge faster
I.e. The G5 is doa

( you have to buy a case for the G5 or that metal will easy get damaged
, but my s6 edge plus as no marks at all)

The removing. Battery is very big to take with you, better to have the wiresless chasing case for the s7 with a bigger battery size and ip68

Gosh your like a broken record. We get it, you love samsung. Not everyone does tho, let others pick what they like best and don't worry about it. Many times as you've repeated that line, starting to think you work for samsung.

It feels as if wine bottle wrapped in silver matte plastic layer. If you make few scratches or tears you can simply peal it off.

At first glance at the front and I thought it was huawei g8. Not ugly but this smooth edge design language is so iphonic that it looks like a kid's toy for me. Now I'm liking v10 ang g4 leather design more.

the bottom bezel comes off to replace the battery and to slot in other accessories. just how is it useless?

The bulges on the back remind me of the Galaxy Gear camera. LG is trying too hard to deviate itself in smartphone design that it's losing its sophistication. The G5 doesn't look near-flagship to me.

The front of the device at the top is black. This makes it to look ugly. They have made the same mistake again. Why not all white or all silver?

It could be that the entire bottom part up to the bottom of the screen is part of the magic slot and can be removed, so it will be the color of whatever the slot is.
