This could be our first real look at the LG G5


We have a general idea of what the LG G5 is supposed to look like by now, but we haven’t yet gotten many full looks at the thing in the flesh. We sort of still don’t with the latest leak, but it’s the most we’ll get for now.

We even see the slit on the side of the device which exposes the volume buttons which now exist on the left edge of the device (compared to rear placement on the previous 2 devices in the lineup).

We have to remember that this could be a prototype from any stage of development, so something might end up completely different by the time it hits retail. How are you feeling about this thing?
