Another LG G5 leak points to a new flagship design

While the LG G5 is expected to be unveiled at MWC 2016 next month, a new leaked diagram indicates a design change for the LG flagship.

The diagram, discovered by Shai Mizrahi of Israeli web portal Walla!, show the volume keys for the LG G5 moving to the side of the handset, rather than under the camera at the back of the phone like the LG G4.

The power button will remain on the back of the handset, which will also include a fingerprint scanner.

G5 designs

This isn’t the first rumor that has pointed to a redesign for the LG G5, with a render from last week claiming the handset will have a tray at the bottom of the handset that opens up for the removable battery.

While today’s diagram leak doesn’t show a similar tray, the render from last week does show volume buttons on the side of the handset, rather than the back.

According to the diagram, the G5 will also measure 149.4 x 73.9 x 8.2mm, making it thinner than the G4, but also slightly taller and wider.

As always, we suggest taking these rumors with a grain of salt, and with MWC still more than a month away, we expect we’ll be seeing more leaks before we see the LG G5 in the flesh.
