[Update] New LG G5 images revealed - dual rear camera and fingerprint scanner visible

[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.

The article is one day old and is being reposted. It definitely looks good. What a circus of miserable whiners

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).

funny how people bash plastic when plastic was your ONLY CHOICE in the Galaxy Series until the 6, considering you probably are one of sammys sheep fans like 80% of PA readers are! Post # 6

agreed. Also nothing bad with plastic in fact its can be more durable than metal. Still i prefer metal phone.

You must be on something. This design is about as generic as it gets.

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.

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.

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.

Ugh, gross. I have G4 and was going to get this but they've lost me on the design alone. Thanks but no thanks LG... You had to go and ruin a good thing.
