LG G4 leaks in all its glory ahead of official debut on April 28
The upcoming LG G4 flagship smartphone has leaked in all its glory, as a number of press renders show the handset's design ahead of the official unveiling.
LG has scheduled a special event for later this month, on April 28, to take the wraps off its new LG G4 flagship. The company has also done some teasing ahead of the big launch, revealing some only some pieces of the puzzle.
The rumor mill never rests, however, and the upcoming LG G4 has now leaked in dozens of official renders, more than two weeks ahead of its formal debut. Famous tipster Evan Blass, known as @EvLeaks, has discovered a work-in-progress website for the LG G4, and leaked images of the handset from all angles. The microsite has since been shut down, but nothing really disappears once it's out there on the Web.
The new-generation LG G4 doesn't look all that different from the previous LG G3 flagship, albeit it does sport some cosmetic changes such as an optional leather back (real leather, not the faux leather back Samsung used for some of its devices), and a neat weave resembling carbon fiber on the front.
The leak further shows a number of swappable back plates, which indicates the smartphone may come with several customization options to accommodate different tastes. At least six different leather backs are apparently in the cards, in an array of different colors. The smartphone will also come in more common plastic backs, which will surely be more affordable than the real leather options. The LG G4 will also support the LG Quick Circle case, which allows users to view notifications through a window even when the cover is closed. The Verge has more images of the handset, as leaked by EvLeaks.
When it comes to specifications, meanwhile, the next-generation LG G4 should come with a 5.5-inch QHD display (2560 x 1440 pixels), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 or 808 processor under the hood, 3GB of RAM, microSD support for expandable storage, and a 3,000 mAh battery. The handset will also feature a 16-megapixel rear camera with an f/1.8 aperture, laser autofocus, and an infrared color spectrum analyzer.
As previously mentioned, the LG G4 will make its formal debut on April 28, so we'll bring you the official details soon enough. In the meantime, it's still advisable to take leaks with a grain of salt.
