2016 is upon us and with the new year comes a rumor mill intent upon churning out plenty of reports regarding upcoming flagships. One of those hotly-anticipated flagships is the LG G5, which has been the subject of many rumors lately. Now, we may be getting our first good look at the LG G5. It’s a bit unclear if this is the G5, as the phone is camouflaged by a dummy box, but there are some signs indicating that it may be a prototype model.
As you can see, the device in question features dual cameras on the rear, matching up with previous reports claiming 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel sensors. We can also see a fingerprint reader (and likely power button) beneath the camera, again matching up with previous rumors and fitting in with the mock-ups that CNET created. Those mock-ups were done after CNET reportedly got a look at a prototype model and found that the device has a removable battery that slides in and out with the bottom of the device.
You may also notice that the volume rocker has been moved from the rear of the device to the left side. On the right side, you’ll find a spot for SIM and microSD cards. Moving around to the bottom, we can see a microphone, speaker and a USB-C charging port.
Again, it’s hard to tell for sure if this is an early prototype of the LG G5, but it does pique our interest with the way that it matches up to other rumors. As it currently stands, we’ll have to keep our eyes peeled for more reports and images to get a better idea of just what the LG G5 will look like.
