In a recent leak, we saw an alleged diagram of the yet to be announced LG G5. Now a new diagram has been leaked, which claims to show the smartphone’s design.
The diagram seen above was leaked by Hebrew-speaking Shai Mizrachi. The diagram shows the LG G5 featuring a curved back and noticeably thin bezels. It also shows that LG has moved the smartphone’s volume button to the left side of the device, instead of the back like that on the LG G4. The power button remains on the back of the device, which is said to double as a fingerprint scanner. Also shown is a rear-facing camera with laser auto focus and LED flash seemingly found above the power button.
According to the diagram, the LG G5 will measure 149.4 x 73.9 x 8.2 mm, making the device slightly narrower and thinner compared to the LG G4, which measures 148.9 x 76.1 x 9.8 mm. Based on the diagram, the screen should measure 5.5 inches. It is said to offer a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Like we mentioned earlier, the diagram shows the LG G5 with extremely thin bezels, suggesting it will feature an edge-to-edge screen. We also mentioned that the back appears to be curved. We’re assuming this is for a much better grip.
We’ve learned from previous reports that the LG G5 is expected to rock the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, coupled with 3 GB of RAM, under the hood. Unlike the LG G4, which features a leather back cover, the LG G5 is expected to be constructed out of metal. A previous leaked diagram has revealed that LG has designed a new drawer-like mechanism that allows users to remove the smartphone’s 2,800 mAh battery. The device is also expected to feature a USB Type-C port, which allows for faster data transfer, faster charging, and never having to worry about plugging in the cable the wrong way ever again.
LG is expected to lift he lid on the LG G5 earlier than expected on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain (a day before MWC 2016). This is the same day Samsung is expected to unveil the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
