Fleshed out LG G5 peeks through these case makers' renders
posted by Chris P. / Feb 05, 2016, 4:40 AM
Courtesy of case makers LK Ultra and Diztronic, and already available to buy/pre-order, the cases feature a rather fleshed out LG G5 peeking out of its protective armor. Most of what we see, we've already had good indication of, but it's the first time that we get a close look at the oft rumored dual camera setup at the back, which just so happens to be accompanied by a dual flash array. Underneath the duo, a cutout is visible—likely where LG engineers have decided to place the laser auto focus mechanism of might and magic.
Underneath all that, we see the now familiar circular cutout for what appears to be a touch type fingerprint scanner, which is also expected to double up as a power button. In what would be a mildly surprising move, these case renders again suggest that LG has decided to move the volume rocker to the side—a departure from the layout of its last three G-series flagships.
For what it's worth, the cases by the two makers actually differ in design layout, with one case featuring more openings on the sides than the other. It's also worth pointing out that neither of these appears to be designed in a way that would allow for easy ejection of the battery, if such craziness is indeed what LG has in store for us. Obviously, it's entirely possible that these are simply case makers trying to grab some attention for their products without having the actual technical drawings of the G5. If you're feeling optimistic, however, you might agree that it's also possible that they are only in possession of rudimentary blueprints of the device that would bar them from spoiling the surprise entirely.

It's a shame they moved the volume buttons to the side.

in my opinion, it is a great move. I feel it plain ugly to have volume and power button on the back. So, it is a personal prefference

Yeah I found the rear button placement perfect. The up button I mapped to flashlight and the down button launched the camera. It worked very well and easily with one hand. I don't think the same functions would be as quickly accessible with the new side placement.

In my opinion smartphones looks better without logo in the front.

That's the best part of I phone design. But this leak again is fake!

Am I the only one who's seeing front facing speakers on pic 10?

You are not. pic 10 & 11 are indeed showing some sort of grills on the edges. And it is looking like stereo speakers. But the problem is this that pic #1, 2 and 3 are showing different front than 10 and 11. So, we cannot trust on these leaks.

A G5 finals can look back except to render a prototype. It is good that LG has managed to conceal many things and the fans will be more to look forward G5, just let it spoil battery.

I like it, but i've never been a fan of any buttons on the back. I leave my phone on my desk all day and just touch the Note5 fingerprint sensor to turn it on without picking it up. My personal choice would be touch sensors all along both edges of the phone that could record multiple fingers as soon as you pick it up. The edge strips would also allow for volume swiping or other custom input gestures. It would have the Moto flexible display with a glass screen protector, and the cover would only wrap the corners and not all the edges.
