LG G4 slips out early

LG G4 slips out early

The LG G4, the Korean company’s forthcoming flagship phone, has appeared online two weeks before it's due to get an official unveiling.

Renowned Twitter smartphone leaker @evleaks has discovered a cache of details on an official LG product site, including final images and plans for the handset.

Most strikingly, the G4 appears to include a leather back, which it seems will come in a series of colours.

The choice of material runs against prevailing trends, given how readily other phone-makers are currently embracing all-metal builds for their high-end smartphones.

More excitingly, the camera will feature a wide f1.8 aperture, with an infrared sensor to boost imaging accuracy. There’s even a full manual mode for would-be William Egglestones to express themselves and get arty.

Underneath the 5.5–inch Quad HD screen you’ll find a 3,000 mAh battery, which can be removed.

This should be a big draw for those disappointed by the fact that Samsung’s Galaxy S6 battery is baked into the device. Storage can also be expanded via microSD.

LG is set to unveil the G4 at special events on April 28th in London and New York.

But now we know all the key details, it’s hard to get too worked up about the upcoming gathering.
