Leaked LG G4 images point to minor design improvements

A series of claimed LG G4 images have leaked, offering a potential insight into how the Korean manufacturer’s next flagship phone will look.

Seemingly set to be a modest update on the 2014-released LG G3, the prematurely-outed G4 images point towards another slim-bezelled, arched-back handset.

With reports suggesting that LG is looking to craft its future flagship phones from metal, the images – which surfaced via Imgur, show a device with a metallic rear.

It is current unclear, however, if this is actually a high-end design refresh or another metal-effect plastic imitation.

Sadly, the leaked images offer little insight into the phone’s specs sheet.

Showing off a similar UI to past LG handsets, the prematurely outed images have shown the handset to run the latest Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OS.

The upcoming iPhone 6 challenger has also been shown to feature LG’s now trademark rear-mounted volume and power keys and an LED flash-enhanced primary camera.

An indent in the phone’s upper corner appears to point towards either the inclusion of a Galaxy Note 4 rivalling stylus – as previous leaks have hinted at – or a Korean market appeasing pull-out antenna. At this stage we feel the latter is more likely.

The LG G4 is expected to be formally unveiled later this summer, with LG looking to avoid a direct head-to-head battle with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M9.

Past reports have suggested the device will adopt Qualcomm’s latest 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GB of RAM.

An improved 16-megapixel camera has also been tipped to make and appearance alongside a 5.6-inch 3K display.
