A dummy box with LG's upcoming flagship device, the G5, may have been found and it has surfaced online just weeks before it is actually unveiled.

LG G5 is expected to be announced at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2016 (MWC 2016), which will kick off on 22 February. To be precise, LG's next-generation device is expected to be unveiled on 21 February, a day before MWC 2016.

A source has sent a set of pictures believed to be the LG prototype to DroidLife. There is a dummy box possibly with LG G5, which is for testing purposes only. The report went on to say the pictures don't have LG markers, but a Reddit user posted the same dummy box (now deleted) claiming to contain the LG G5 a month ago. 

Leaked pictures of the LG prototype show the volume button in the left side, SIM and SD card slots in the lower right and a USB Type-C port at the bottom next the speaker.

According to reports that have appeared so far, the LG G5 (model number LG-H830) will have 149.4 x 73.9 x 8.2mm dimension and sport a 5.6-inch or 5.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1440 x 2560 pixels (538 ppi pixel density).

Under the hood, it is expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, Adreno 530 GPU, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 32GB internal memory expandable up to 128GB, 3GB RAM, 16MP rear camera, 8MP secondary snapper and a Li-Ion 3,000mAh battery.
