LG G4 gets hit with a massive leak ahead of April 28th launch


LG has been teasing pieces of their next device, the LG G4, one at a time. The difference this time is LG definitely didn’t want this ‘teaser’ to be shown so soon. Evan “evleaks” Blass, did some detective work and found a staging site of the possible LG G4. All of the images seem accurate, aside from the specifications, which belong to the LG G3.

Since the site is just for staging the site ahead of the debut of the LG G4, all of the specs such as 13 megapixel camera, Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and 2.5 GHz Snapdragon processor are shown. Everything is set, they just need to flip the switch to update the specs for the G4. However, it now seems as if LG has killed the site altogether, so you’ll have to rely on what we have now.

For the most part, the LG G4 looks heavily influenced by its predecessor, which isn’t bad at all. The G3 was personally one of my favorite phones, so it’s good to see they aren’t changing anything radically. It is worth noting that it seems almost definitive that there will be options to get the G4 with an all leather back, as seen on one of the pages. The options of back covers include leather in Brown, Black, Red, Skyblue, Beige, and Yellow. For standard back covers, the colors include Metallic Gray, Ceramic White, and Shiny Gold.

The front of the device seems to have a carbon fiber look versus the brushed metallic look of the G3. The device still looks as slim as ever and still includes a notification light. Barring some new radical design changes, front facing speakers are a no go as the speaker still resides on the back. Another thing worth noting is that the battery will most likely be removable and will include a microSD card slot as well.

The successor to the G3 will be debuted on April 28th, as announced via their leather invitation. Most of the specifications are unknown, but it assumed that the LG G4 will retain a 5.5 inch QHD display, a Snapdragon 810 processor, and a 16 megapixel with a f/1.8 aperture which has been confirmed by LG. If the site comes back up or we get any more info regarding the LG G4, we’ll be sure to let you know.
