Leaked LG G5 Design Diagrams Show Thinner, Larger Build Than The G4

The LG G5 is very much expected to make its debut at the upcoming Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, and while we don’t yet quite know what the device will look like, it is believed to feature a design that is quite unlike any of LG’s current products. That’s no bad thing, assuming someone at LG didn’t get a bit too carried away one afternoon and started making things unbearably thin or with 7-inch screens.

Thankfully, the outlook is quite bright after a new leak hit the web, giving us quite a hunk of hope as the device’s official unveiling draws ever closer. The leaked diagrams show the LG G5 from just about every angle, and offer an insight into what the company will be showing off next month.

While the device does indeed look thinner than previous models thanks to the fact it doesn’t feature a curved back panel, it shouldn’t be too thin thanks to that massive camera that appears to be present in the leaked diagrams. Taller and wider than the LG G4 at 149.4 x 73.9 x 8.2mm, the G5 is expected to receive a larger screen this time around, though just how big it will be is currently unclear. LG has also moved the volume buttons back to the side of the device, and it seems it might also feature a fingerprint sensor on the rear.


One thing missing in these diagrams is the removable, slide-out battery that has been rumored previously, though the overall form factor does look similar to what we had already been led to expect.

If earlier rumors are to be believed, we can expect the LG G5 to come packed with a dual rear camera, a completely metal design, expandable storage via micro-SD card, USB-C for charging and data transfer and 3GB of RAM to accompany the Snapdragon 820 processor.

Mobile World Congress kicks off next month, so if our timescales are correct, we won’t have long left to wait before we find out just how accurate these leaks have been.
