LG G5 back panel for South Korean carrier LG Uplus leaks out - this is the real deal!
The LG G5 is hardly a big secret by now, with all the leaks and such. But as far as something truly official, 100% bullet-proof to gawk at, we haven't had something like that to show until now. This is a real image of the LG G5's back panel, leaked by someone over at LG owned South Korean cellular carrier LG U+. The smartphone will be officially revealed this Sunday, Feb 21, at MWC 2016.

The image we're seeing corresponds with the rest of the leaks we've been discussing in the past weeks. The panel is made of metal and comes with the Dual camera setup, rumored to be a 16MP + 8MP one. The holes for the LED flash assembly and fingerprint scanner are both visible. And, of course, at the center of the panel, we can see the logo of LG U+ carrier, with LG G5 written at the bottom area of the rear panel. This is the real deal!

Speaking of LG G5, LG may be working on a lite variant of the LG G5, that may or may not end up called the LG G5 Lite. The device was spotted on GFXBench couple of days ago with model number LG H840, featuring specs such as a 5.3-inch display, an octa-core 1.8GHz Snapdragon 652 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable internal storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 8-megapixel front facing camera.

For a slight second i maybe tought to consider LG G5 vs S7 Edge , but no f**k that , i aint paying high end money for ugly phone , no matter the spec because S7 WILL deliver + water resistant + if i regret buying S7 at least its beautifull.

taking the crown of the most beautiful design is very difficult. So LG is trying to take the crown of ugly design. again looking very ugly. I hope lg will not drop the ball on camera sensor. Samsung already cheap out by putting 1/2.5" sensor.

I actually think it looks slightly better than the previous leaks but it's still ugly as hell.

Its starting to grow on me. The white one looks best so far, strong colors like red, blue and deep black would look much better. One interesting thing is that the cameras and finger print scanner doesn't seem to stick out much at all on this chassi.

The case? No removable slot?

The slot is probably just a part of the chassi, not any electronics in it. If you look at the lower right side of it you see a small opening, probably for a button to remove the bottom.

A few more carefully placed holes and that could look like a Storm Trooper helmet, and that would be a phone I'd buy.

Damn, even my Bello looks better. It appears G5 is just an experiment, to see if people will accept the fancy new battery / expansion slot system.

G2/G3/G4, hell even the V10, had such nice designs......what the heck happened? I admit, this back panel with the circles in the camera area looks much better than a completely black open area like we've seen on previous G5 leaks. But just....overall, I feel like this is a gigantic step back from their previous designs. Keep the back buttons, embed a fingerprint scanner into the power/lock button, beef up the internals, better camera, and go with all metal design with removable battery magic slot thingy. Perfect evolution of the G4 right there.
