LG G4 is set to be announced on 28th of April but a recent mistake by LG has revealed the phones design, specifications and some of the features. The leak comes straight from LG’s official website where a page detailed the LG G4 for quite some time before it was finally taken down by LG Officials.
A New Premium Design:
The images revealed what appears to be a new premium design with swappable back covers offering direct competition to the Moto X and its customization options. The dozens of official images leave nothing to the imagination.
Carbon Fiber Front and Leather at the Back:
The core of the device is very familiar but comes with a variety of different colored leather backs and some plain plastic back covers with a new squarish texture. The front also sees a change and now appears to have a carbon fiber weaved design. The back is now more curved and the ergonomic design should fit better in the users’ hands making the relatively large 5.5 inch device easier to hold.
All New IPS Quantum Dot Display:
The details reveal that the G4 sees a slight bump in the dimensions as the device measures 149 x 75 x 8.9 mm. The thickness remains the same even with the more prominent curve featured at the back. The device will come with the same 5.5 inch screen but with a new QHD screen with an IPS Quantum Dot Display. It’s the same tech that is used on Sony mobile screens and offers a very wide color gamut matching AMOLEDs in color saturation while making the display more power efficient.
MicroSD slot and Removable Battery:
The phone is set to come with a microSD card slot and a 3000mAh removable battery. This makes the phone one of the last few flagship devices that allow the use of memory cards and a user replaceable battery. The images also reveal a LG Quick Circle case to be available which features a small notification window.
The phones internals were not part of the leaked page but they are rumored to be a SnapDragon 810 with 3GB of RAM. LG has already confirmed an f/1.8 16 MP camera developed by LG to be a part of the new flagship.
The device will come in a variety of colors from baby pink to dark gray. There’s very little left to be known by LG on the event on 28th April but whatever scant details that remain will be covered at the announcement.
