New LG G5 Render Appears ahead of Announcement

February 19, 2016 - Written By Alexander Maxham

LG is slated to announce the LG G5 at Mobile World Congress on Sunday. This will be their first time in a few years announcing a flagship device at the conference. We’ve already seen many leaks about what the device looks like in renders as well as real life photos. Not to mention what specs and features it might include. The most talked about feature has been the “magic slot” which is said to be something of a modular thing for the device. It’s also said that it can provide a removable battery, extended batteries and many other accessories, while still having an aluminum design on the device. It’s actually a pretty exciting feature for the LG G5, and likely to be the most talked about once it goes official in a few days.

Today, however, we have a fresh press render from Evleaks. Here we can see the LG G5, or at least what we believe to be the LG G5. On the back you have two cameras, along with flash and your laser auto-focus in between them with the fingerprint reader below that. On the back, you can see a line towards the bottom, which is likely where the magic slot is. Many thought it might look pretty ugly, however it looks pretty good there. Also should allow for antennas to penetrate the aluminum, which is needed on a device like this. The front looks pretty similar to previous versions of the LG G line, where you have the different colored stripe at the bottom with LG’s logo. Additionally at the top we see what appears to be a pretty big bezel along with a front-facing camera and the speaker grill.

What’s worth noting here is that it doesn’t appear to have front or rear-facing speakers. Our best guess would be that they are on the bottom, as was the LG G4’s speaker. Additionally, it appears that the rear buttons are also gone this time and it looks like the volume rocker is on the side again. LG is set to announce the LG G5 on Sunday and we’ll be live at their event in Barcelona. So make sure you stick to Android Headlines for all the details.
