February 20, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

LG’s flagship ‘G’ handset is usually one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year, and that’s the case with the company’s upcoming G5 flagship this year as well. The company will introduce their new handset at an event in Barcelona tomorrow, and interestingly enough, their South Korean competitors, Samsung, will unveil their flagship offerings as well. Anyhow, the LG G5 has been leaking out for a long time now, and it seems like the company’s test unit just leaked out, read on.

If you take a look at the provided image, you’ll get to see the LG U+ version of the LG G5 while it was in development. This image fits with all the recent leaks we’ve seen, and even though the cutouts on the phone’s back are blacked out, we can still guess what hides there. The LG G5 will feature dual camera setup on the back, and in between those two snappers you’ll find the dual-LED, dual tone flash and a Laser Autofocus, though it is possible LG will include a heart rate sensor as well. Below fingerprint scanner will be located right below the camera sensors, as you can see in the image above.

The LG G5 is said to sport a 5.3-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, and more than one internal storage variants. The secondary ticker display is also a possibility here, LG has already confirmed the ‘always-on’ display for the G5 through an official teaser. LG will almost certainly offer a microSD expansion along with this device, and a removable battery will be available as well. Speaking of which, rumors say that the device will ship with a 2,800mAh battery, and you’ll be able to remove it by popping out a ‘chin’ on the bottom of the G5. This smartphone will be fueled by the Snapdragon 820 SoC, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come pre-installed here with LG’s custom UI. One of the two cameras on the back will pack in a 16-megapixel snapper, and an 8-megapixel shooter will be placed up front. The device will also offer 4G LTE connectivity, and it seems like the phone will also offer some quality audio as well. This handset will be announced tomorrow, so stay tuned for that.
