LG G4 leaks in all its leather-bound glory

A series of official looking LG G4 pictures and press renders have leaked the phone’s new leather-backed design.

With the LG G3 follow-on set to enter the realms of reality at a dedicated launch event on April 28, a series of images have popped up via an unannounced product site.

The micro site, which was spotted by serial tech tipster Evan Blass, has since been taken down, but not before a flurry of G4 images leaked out.

According to the teased images, the LG G4 will adopt a slightly curved form and a new leather rear, with a sizeable stitched seam running down the centre of the phone’s back.

With a tan leather finish seemingly set to be the phone’s default offering, additional leaks have suggested black, red, blue, grey and yellow leather options will also be available.

For those not keen on the cowhide cover, a selection of plastic clad models have also been spotted.

Aesthetics aside, the latest leaks have offered little additional insight into exactly what features the G4 will host.

In the past week LG has confirmed a host of features set to appear on the G4, ranging from a new 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 pixel QHD display to the f/1.8 wide aperture 16-megapixel primary camera.

Further components confirmed to make an appearance aboard the Samsung Galaxy S6 rival include an 8-megapixel selfie snapper and a 3,000mAh battery.

According to the latest leak, the LG G4 will be offered with a range of accessories, ranging from a quick view case to a wireless charging dock.

This is shaping up to be a very promising handset. With the leather rear a pretty smart move. It has that premium look and feel as opposed to plastic. You would expect this to be Samsung's closest rival to Android Smartphone of the year. The Z4 will probably be up there specs wise, and with a superior build, but for some reason they just never sell as well.

OMG, that leather is the ugliest I have ever seen. Looks like cheap fake leather handbags you get at market stalls. Complete fail. If you want to see how leather should be done properly, just look at the 2nd Gen Moto X.

Give me a removable battery and an SD card slot, and I'm happy.
