LG's new G4 smartphone is expected to be announced at a global press event on April 28th, but clearly someone at the company got excited a little too soon -- they inadvertently published an entire micro-site dedicated to the next smartphone. Notorious leaker @evleaks spotted the micro-site which revealed the details of LG's next flagship, and although LG took the site down, we now know almost everything there is to know about the G4.
LG's fullfledged micro-site reveals that the LG G4 specs list includes:
- Display: 5.5 inch IPS Quad HD (2k) extra-bright display
- CPU: 2.5Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
- Storage/RAM: 16GB storage / 2GB RAM or 32GB storage / 3GB RAM
- Expandable storage: microSD
- Battery: 3000 mAh battery, Wireless charging built in
- Connectivity: LTE Cat 6 (300 Mbps download, 50 Mbps upload over 4G), HDMI SlimPort
- Camera: 16MP with f/1.8 aperture, Optical Image Stabilization and laser autofocus, infrared color spectrum, light trail effect, full manual shooting mode
- Dimensions: 149.1 mm x 75.3 mm x 8.9 mm
The leaked pictures reveal that LG has taken inspiration from Samsung's Note range and is going for, among other styles, a leather-clad rear on the G4. Other than the slight cosmetic tweaks - which also include a pseudo carbon fiber weave on the front - the handset is a small evolutionary upgrade to the G3 rather than a complete revamp.
The specs of the LG G3 were already market-leading and impressive and it seems that this year, LG is aiming to tweak a few parts of the G3 to offer a much better experience. The standout feature seems to be the camera - which LG has previously revealed themselves - and this will correct the biggest issue with the G3, which was the lackluster camera performance.
There's only a few blanks for LG to fill in now and we'll naturally bring you all the details from their launch event on April 28th. Are you planning to buy the G4 based on these leaks or do the Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge or HTC One M9 meet your Android needs? Let us know in the comments below.
