LG G4 design leak clues curved display, sized-up camera

The LG G4 is now just one month away, so it’s no surprise a new image purporting to be a leaked press render has emerged.

Coming courtesy of OnLeaks, this latest reveal offers a host of design clues as to what we can expect from the fast-approaching handset.

The most glaring observation is that LG isn’t looking to make a huge departure from the largely well-received design of last year’s LG G3 smartphone.

The biggest difference is a more sizeable camera sensor, which is often a sticking point for manufacturers even with flagship devices.

It also appears as though the chassis is curved far more severely than previous LG offerings. It looks as though the display might sport a slight curve as a result.

That wouldn’t be entirely surprising – LG has already shown off its curved display technology previously, namely on the LG G Flex 2.

It would also be a sensible design choice considering Samsung has broken the flat-display status quo with its latest flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

So what else is there to note with these new renders? Well fans of the G3 will be glad to hear that the power button has retained is rear-and-centre spot, with the volume rocker, laser focus, and dual-LED flash also staying in place.

It seems as though the device will retain the plasticky build too, as well as the classic grey hue.

OnLeaks also tips dimensions, revealing that the handset will measure up at 148.9 x 76.5 x 9.9mm.

LG is set to launch its latest flagship next month, with the new device expected to boast a Snapdragon 810 chip and Android 5.0 Lollipop fresh out of the box.
