Some early LG G4 case renders have emerged online, reaffirming our expectations for LG’s next flagship smartphone.
The new images come courtesy of case-maker Verus, which previously showed off a case-clad Samsung Galaxy S6 ahead of the smartphone’s unveiling.
It’s not clear whether Verus has been given special access to the G4 designs by LG, or if the case-maker is basing the new images on previously leaked shots and renders of the upcoming handset.
A feature previously tipped to make an appearance on LG’s inbound HTC One M9 rival, the biometric sensor appears to be shown within the centre of the phone’s rear-mounted power button and volume rocker.
LG has yet to formally confirm any such plans and, as such, these leaks should be taken with a pinch of salt.
The subtle curve is less severe than that on the LG G Flex 2, but suggests LG could be ready to bring its convex-panel display technology into the mainstream.

Meanwhile, a separate titbit of G4 info from today, this time courtesy of BusinessKorea, suggests that the upcoming handset will ship with a ‘dual-mode user experience’.
According to the report, the flagship smartphone will offer a general user mode, as well as an expert mode.
One example of this bonus expert functionality was said to be a host of new camera features, only available in the advanced user mode.
It’s not clear, however, whether this is any different from the dual-mode shipped with the LG G3, which also offers basic and more advanced software variants.
The device seems almost assured to launch on April 28, so stay tuned.
