LG G4 leak

Ahead of this afternoon’s big reveal, the LG G4 specs sheet has leaked in full.

Largely backing up past leaks and rumours, the latest LG G4 tease has shown the handset is shaping up as a true challenger to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9.

Citing an unnamed ‘trusted source’, Mashable has detailed the phone’s complete features list, revealing LG will throw one major curveball into the phone’s flagship billing.

It has been suggested that the G4 will overlook the issue-hit 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor in favour of the less powerful six-core Snapdragon 808 chip.

It is unclear exactly why LG has eschewed Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line processor, but widespread overheating concerns are believed to be the crux of the issue.

Chipset aside, the G4 is shaping up as a true powerhouse of the mobile space.

Latest leaks have revealed the phone will pair a 5.5-inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel QHD resolution display with 3GB of DDR3 RAM and 32GB of internal storage – expandable via microSD.

As LG itself has already confirmed, the G4’s primary camera will be a 16-megapixel offering with optical image stabilisation and laser focus assistance.

This will be enhanced by an f/1.8 wide-aperture lens for improved low light photography. A secondary, 8-megapixel camera will sit up front.

Further additions to the G4 include Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC connectivity options and a 3,000mAh battery which promises to offer an impressive 14 hours of talk time or 440 hours of standby time on a single charge.

A worthy update, should sell very well if LG price it nicely (~£400?).
