Could these be Pictures of the LG G5 Inside a Protective Case?


This morning Droid Life received some pictures of a possible LG G5 prototype, shrouded in a protective case to conceal the full design of the phone. While their source didn’t say that it is surely a G5, they did say it is an LG prototype of a yet unreleased phone. Typically companies don’t put mid-range and low-range phones inside of fancy cases to hide a secret design. Hence, it makes sense from my point of view that this could very well be the G5.

In addition to the logic above, the design in the pictures (see gallery) is very similar to a previous posting on Reddit a few weeks back, showing off the camera module and rear power button on the G5. Both pictures also reveal dual  rear cameras as well, lending more weight to the possibility this is legit. Recently, CNET and VentureBeat also claimed to have knowledge of dual rear cameras on the G5. As for other specs, we have heard the G5 will move the volume buttons from the back to the sides, while featuring an all-metal body, micro-SD slot, and a USB Type-C charging standard-all of which are present here.

While nothing will be confirmed until LG hosts their event on February 21 in Barcelona, it’s always promising when all of the leaks are aligning with the same information. What do YOU think? Are we looking at a LG G5 inside this case?
