These LG G5 protective cases may give us another look at the smartphone
posted by Florin T. / Jan 25, 2016, 11:50 AM
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.

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

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.
