LG G4 release date confirmed for May 31

Ahead of the phone’s upcoming unveiling, LG has confirmed that the LG G4 release date has been pencilled in for May 31.

Leaving just six weeks until the eagerly awaited handset hits retailers’ shelves, the date has been teased by the official South Korean LG website.

According to the leak, in store availability is expected just four weeks after the phone’s imminent April 28 launch event.

It is currently unclear if the May 31 launch will be exclusive to LG’s homeland, or if it covers off the phone’s international availability.

As well as the phone’s release date, the latest LG G4 leak has revealed details on a free screen replacement service, similar to HTC Uh Oh.

According to the promotional document, LG will offer an “LCD replacement service free of charge” with the G4. The company has revealed that G4 owners will be able to have their phone’s screen placed without charge if it becomes damaged within 12 months of purchase.

The pre-release tease is the latest in a flurry of G4 leaks dished out by the phone’s manufacturer.

In recent weeks, LG has confirmed the phone will play host to an improved 5.5-inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel QHD display and a f/1.8 wide aperture 16-megapixel rear-mounted camera.

Further features confirmed to make an appearance include an 8-megapixel selfie snapper, Android 5.0 Lollipop and a new, leather backed design.
