LK Ultra and Diztronic are the case makers responsible for the renders seen above. This isn’t the first time case renders of the LG G5 have been leaked, but this is the first time case renders show the rumoured dual camera setup of the device. They also show that LG has employed dual flash and laser auto focus.

Also shown is a circular cutout under the camera, which is believed to be for a fingerprint scanner. The fingerprint scanner is also the LG G5’s power button. The renders also line up with past rumours that claim LG has moved the volume rocker from the back to the side of the device. The LG G2, the LG G3, and the LG G4 all featured volume buttons on the back of the device.

Although a lot of what the renders show us mirror what past LG G5 rumours are claiming, the renders do not show us any signs of a special drawer-like mechanism that allows users to eject the battery from the metal chassis. This said, you should take these renders with a pinch of salt.

To recap, the LG G5 is rumoured to feature a dual camera setup, consisting of a 16-megapixel and an 8-megapixel sensor. This new rear-facing camera setup is said to allow users to change the field of focus after an image is captured. This camera also comes with 4K video recording support and optical image stabilisation. As for the LG G5’s front-facing camera, the device is said to feature an 8-megapixel snapper for taking selfies and video chat. It is said to feature a reversible Type-C USB port. It is said to feature a 5.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Under the hood is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, which is a new and more powerful quad-core processor with an Adreno 530 GPU to handle graphics. 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board. Lastly, it is expected to be 8.2 mm-thick, which is slightly thinner than the LG G4.

LG Mobile made the announcement on its official Facebook page. In a GIF, the Korean firm says, “Come meet new friends on the playground” at the Sant Jordi Club in Barcelona, Spain on the 21st of February. This was followed by “LG G5 day.” So there you go. It’s confirmed that the LG G5 will be unveiled at LG’s event on the said date.

Here’s the GIF:

Although the GIF doesn’t reveal what the LG G5 has to offer or what it will look like, we’ve learned from previous rumours that the LG G5 will feature a 5.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Under the hood is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, which is a new and more powerful quad-core processor with an Adreno 530 GPU to handle graphics. 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board. It is said to feature a reversible Type-C USB port. In the photography department, the device is said to feature a dual camera setup, consisting of a 16-megapixel and an 8-megapixel sensor. This new rear-facing camera setup is said to allow users to change the field of focus after an image is captured. This camera also comes with 4K video recording support and optical image stabilisation. As for the LG G5’s front-facing camera, the device is said to feature an 8-megapixel snapper for taking selfies and video chat. Unlike the leather- or plastic-clad LG G4, the LG G5 is said to be clad in metal. Being clad in metal usually means that the device will feature a non-removable battery, but leaked renders suggest that LG will employ a drawer-like mechanism that gives users access to the battery. Lastly, it is expected to be 8.2 mm-thick, which is slightly thinner than the LG G4.

3D renders allegedly show LG G5

Earlier this January, we came across diagrams that allegedly show the unannounced LG G5. The diagrams showed that LG has moved the volume buttons from the back of the smartphone to the left side. Additionally, the renders showed a device with thinner bezels and a curved back. The curved back is believed to provide a better grip for users. Alleged case renders of LG G5 also surfaced re-confirming that the device’s volume buttons have been moved. They also reveal that the device will feature a fingerprint scanner under the rear-facing camera. Now, new 3D renders of the device have surfaced, giving us another look at the unannounced device.

Techconfigurations created the 3D renders above. The new renders are based on the leaked diagrams and case renders that surfaced in the past. According to the site, the LG G5 will feature a 5.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The front-facing camera is said to be an 8-megapixel snapper that will take care of snapping selfies and video chat. The dual camera setup is said to consist of a 16-megapixel and an 8-megapixel sensor. This new rear-facing camera setup is said to allow users to change the field of focus after an image is captured. This camera also comes with 4K video recording support and optical image stabilisation. Under the hood is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, which is a new and more powerful quad-core processor with an Adreno 530 GPU to handle graphics, coupled with 4 GB of RAM. It is said to feature a reversible Type-C USB port. Lastly, it is expected to be 8.2 mm-thick, which is slightly thinner than the LG G4.

Like any unconfirmed report, take this information with a pinch of salt.

An LG press event will be taking place on the 21st of February (a day before Mobile World Congress 2016 kicks off in Barcelona, Spain) where the South Korean phone maker is expected to lift the lid on the LG G5. This is the same day and venue the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are expected to make their official debut.

LG G5 to carry the model number “LG-H830?”

We’ve learned a lot about the unannounced LG G5, thanks to a number of leaks we’ve come across in the past, but what about the device’s model number? A new report claims to have uncovered LG’s next flagship’s model number.

LG-H830?

LGG5UAProf

Hungarian-speaking NapiDroid.hu is responsible for leaking the HTTP User Agent data shown above. The information shows an unannounced LG-made device with model number “LG-H830,” which is believed to be none other than the LG G5.

Although this information is unverified, it would make a lot of sense for the LG G5 to bear the “LG-H830” model number. After all, the LG G4’s model number is “LG-H810.”

The User Agent data also confirms that the LG G5 will run Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box. We’d actually be surprised if it didn’t run the latest version of Android.

Past leaks have revealed that the LG G5 will be clad in metal, unlike the LG G4, which came with a leather back cover. The trade off with metal-clad devices is a non-removable battery. LG is said to have solved this with a new drawer-like mechanism that slides out of the chassis, allowing easy access to the device’s rumoured 2,800 mAh battery. The device is expected to feature a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) and a secondary screen (resolution of 160 x 1040 pixels) just like that on the LG V10. The secondary screen will show notifications such as battery status, the weather, and the time. It will also display shortcuts that give quick access to apps. There are two types of cameras expected to found on the back of the LG G5 – one is a 16-megapixel sensor and the other will help snap 135-degree wide-angle photos. Laser auto focus, dual LED flash, and a fingerprint scanner is also expected to found on the back. As for the G5’s front-facing camera, the device is expected to feature an 8-megapixel sensor for snapping selfies and video chat. It is said to feature 32 GB of internal storage. Under the hood is expected to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC with an Adreno 530 GPU to handle graphics, coupled with 3 GB of RAM.

LG has sent out invitations to a press event on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain. The LG G5 is expected to make its official debut at the press event. This is the same day the Samsung is expected to lift the lid on its new flagship the Galaxy S7.

Renders allegedly show metal LG G5 with new way to remove battery

Want to know more about the LG G5? If this is the case, we’ve come across a new leak that you may be interested in. A leaked render allegedly reveals the device, plus a few more details.

Metal design with slide-out removable battery?

Alleged-renders-of-the-LG-G5 Alleged-renders-of-the-LG-G5 (1)

The renders above were created by CNet Korea‘s Matt Kim, which are “based upon a eyewitness testimony.” The renders mirror what we’ve been hearing in the past, which is a metal-clad LG G5.

We can also see changes in design. The LG G5 in the renders no longer features a rounded back and slightly curved design of the LG G4. Instead, it looks flat, thin, and comes with smoother edges. The volume buttons have also been moved from the back to the left side of the frame.

Apart from the changes in design, the LG G5 features a new way to access the battery. The problem with removable backs is that it isn’t ideal for metal construction. Reportedly, LG’s engineers tested various prototypes and came up with a drawer-like design that allows the LG G5 to be clad in metal and yet feature a removable battery. It did this by creating a slide-out mechanism for the battery. The drawer is also said to be more efficient in keeping out water and dust.

Although the renders above do make a lot of sense, we can’t verify if they show the real deal. This said, take them with a pinch of salt.

So far, we’ve learned from previous rumours that the LG G5 will feature a 5.3-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). It is also believed to feature Force Touch. A USB Type-C port is said to be on board, which allows faster data transfer, faster charging, and never having to worry about plugging in the cable the wrong way ever again. It is also said to feature a microSD card slot for additional storage options. The LG G5 is said to feature a dual rear-facing camera setup. The dual camera setup is said to consist of a 16-megapixel and an 8-megapixel sensor. An 8-megapixel front-facing camera is said to be in charge of snapping selfies and video chat. Under the hood is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, coupled with 3 GB of RAM.
