We got a quick look at an LG G4 render yesterday, the key takeaway being that we should be expect a curved design, not unlike the LG G Flex and G Flex 2.
That render has now been fleshed out into a family of shots, collectively being – we’re told – the “first official images” of the LG G4.
Credit goes to Steve from nowhereelse.fr, who’s set up a Twitter account with the handle @OnLeaks because, well, I guess leaking stuff via Twitter is more personal, and effectively makes him a bit of a mobile celeb rather than a largely anonymous blogger.
Anyway! What we’re seeing with the “first official images” of the LG G4 is much the same as yesterday’s leak, specifically a phone that’s not unlike the LG G3, but with a slightly curved design.
The LG G4 appears to have a near-identical setup on the rear, matching the G3’s dual flash with volume buttons immediately below.
Again, the LG G4 is slightly curved, though not quite as curvy as the G Flex 2, otherwise, y’know, there wouldn’t be much point in the latter.
Interestingly, the LG G4 appears to have a “brushed” metal finish, same as the LG G3, which probably means it’s not going balls-out metal.
Steve also reiterates yesterday’s LG G4 dimensions, suggesting that the G4 might have a display larger than the 5.5in G3, possibly 5.7in.
The LG G4 has been rumoured to include a fingerprint scanner, though it’s not evident from the pics supplied here – unless one of the volume buttons is multi-functional.
Other rumoured LG G4 specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16MP rear camera, and possibly – according to a recent rumour – the highest smartphone resolution ever at 1620 x 2880. LG loves a good "world's first" (the G3 was the first global QHD smartphone), so you never know.
LG still hasn’t said anything official about the G4 launch date, but we’re thinking April or possibly early May.
