LG G5 concept images portray a Galaxy S6 edge arch-rival
It's a fun day for mobile device renders today! After the iPad Pro chassis and the pretty Galaxy Note 5 renders, we get to see a Galaxy S6 edge-type of phone as made by none other than LG! It's a really cool design imagining of the eventual LG G5 that sees signature design touches, such as the minimalist front appearance and the back panel volume and power controls transferred onto a rectangular metal body. There's a long earpiece on the top and a big loudspeaker on the bottom. We're not quite sure what to think of this speaker placement, but this is a concept design, after all. Also, the smartphone is just 0.25in (6.4mm) thick.

So, would you like to see LG reinvent its G series flagships' design in this industrial manner? We're certainly curious to see what Samsung's rival can come up with if its designers dropped the leather and plastic and went to town with the CNC milling machines. This could actually happen by the end of the year, if those LG G Note phablet rumors pan out.

It looks futuristic. But the design is too generic.

An ugly and unrealistic design from a practical engineering standpoint. Just like 95%(+) fan made concepts.

Stop with those renders already PA, they got nothing to do with reality and in most cases they are ugly as fcuk! Cmon, it's just random rectangle with G3 wallpaper, I could do better in Paint, just give me 5 minutes. Same goes for those last Z5 renders, if someone wants to watch those stupid concepts just go to devianart.

Or you could just not click on them. That's also an option. Believe it or not, not everyone feels the same way you do. Some folks might actually like to see these.

I thinks the same. Its never going to be official. Stop putting these concepts that no one cares and besides are far from reality (ugly too).

So in the future we won't even be able to hold our phones ? Can't wait. 5.5 " is already so clumbsy to use I get hand pain sometimes.

Well, I'd like to see they put 5" screen in the 120cm tall body. Concept, you know :-)

It's no more of a gimmick than special metal or unibody with plastic antennas or a glass back. It's all for feel and looks.

Just add the curves of the G4 and it will be more beautiful

One would hope that if they go the industrial design route that they pay more attention to ID principles than Samsung designers did. The S6/S6 Edge are great looking phones, but alignment on the edges makes it look like a graduate from a Baptist Bible college did the drawings. NOTHING on the edges is aligned with an equatorial line around the phone, which is just sloppy.

I think it looks great! 1) They actually place the (stereo) speakers in a sensible place. 2) audio jacket and micro usb are still accessible. 3) noise cancellation ports are there and 4) it retains NFC. 5) It also has more screen and less bezel the way ALL phones should be! I'd buy tomorrow!

Looks uncomfortable but I like the dual speakers though.

oboy, another phablet for celebs to wave about ... aside from wannabees buying the celeb-de-jour choice of phone-de-jour did EVERYONE in marketing forget most sales are to working folks who just want a decent-sized phone?!?! Now if Verizon would just get off it's monopoly behind and get that Sony Z3 Compact. Sigh.
