LG G5 leaked photo of actual phone in the wild
Not that it should be surprising anymore, but another flagship has found its way in front of a camera before it can be officially announced by the manufacturer. And the world keeps spinning.
This latest leak is focused on LG’s G5, which is showing off its metal frame and dual-camera system on the back. The phone was apparently imported from the United States and subsequently posted by someone to Dubizzle, a site that lets folks sell things in the United Arab Emirates. There’s an obvious “G5″ brand on the back of the handset, and it does indeed line up with previous reports and rumors of what the handset will supposedly look like when LG unveils it later this month.
We can also see the rear fingerprint reader and power button, and volume buttons on the side. The front of the handset does look like the LG G3, for what it’s worth, but that’s not necessarily an indicator that this isn’t a G5 out in the wild.
As of the time of publishing, the original post on the selling site has been removed, but when it was live the seller was asking for 2,500 dirhams ($681 USD).
Waiting until February 21 might be tough, considering the rumors point to the G5 being one of the most impressive smartphones to date, but hopefully the leaks will tide you over until the big reveal.
