LG G4 Specs and Design, Leaked : 2015 Flagship Smartphone Has Curved Display

Purported photos of the 2015 flagship handset of Korean electronics giant - LG Mobile - has just been posted online by serial tech industry leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer @stagueve on Twitter.

Of course, LG hasn't confirmed the veracity of these images -- but if you ask me, considering the track record of Steve, we could very well be looking at the genuine article.

If we were to believe these photos, it appears that - in terms of design and build - LG G4 will be a cross between the current flagship LG G3 and the special release LG G Flex2, which was launched earlier this year. (Read TechPinas' Comprehensive LG G3 Review)

LG G4 - it seems - will flaunt the same Floating Arc design identity of the handset that it will supersede but it will also have an updated RearKey look as well as a slightly inward-curving display reminiscent of the G Flex2.

According to Steve, LG G4 has dimensions of 148.9 x 76.5 x 9.9 mm versus LG G3's 146.3 x 74.6 x 8.9 mm measurements -- making the 2015 flagship taller, wider, and a tad thicker than its direct predecessor.

Leaked photos of what appears to be silicone cases for the LG G4 show the position of microUSB port, 3.5 mm audio jack, microphone, and IR blaster on the body 2015 model.

Aside from these images, our 'serial tech leaker' - via @OnLeaks - on Twitter [source] also shared some highlights of LG G4's technical specifications. He said that LG's top-of-the-line release is equipped with a 5.6-inch display (with 2K or 3K resolution), 16 MegaPixel main camera (with Laser Focus and Two-Tone Flash), and even a fingerprint sensor! Under the hood, the phablet - he shared - runs Android 5.0 Lollipop (underneath LG's UX interface) with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC and handles multitasking with 3GB of RAM.

I own both LG G2 and LG G3 so seeing these leaks on their official successor really makes me feel all giddy. Off hand, I think LG G4 looks great (again, I believe these photos are 'for real') and the purported specs are also pretty standard for a battleship model this 2015. But more than its design and hardware, I'm more excited about the new software features from the Korean Giant that will debut on this device. LG is particularly known for introducing cool and intuitive software enhancements like KnockCode, QSlide, QuickMemo, among many others and I'm sure that they have more up their sleeves that they'll finally show us via the LG G4, which is already slated to be announced next month, April 2015. That said, stay tuned for updates, TP Friends.
