LG G4 press renders leak; touts leather back cover

We are only a few days away from what would be the global launch of LG‘s newest flagship, but a major leak has just happened in South Korea, where alleged press renders for the G4 has leaked and is now rounding up in cyberspace.


According to photos from LG’s G4 microsite, this new super smartphone from the Korean tech conglomerate will feature genuine leather back covers along with metallic black, silk white, shine gold, burgundy red and moon violet colors.



As for the hardware, the G4 is said to be equipped with a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 and a 5.5-inch “Quantum” display with a Quad HD resolution. What might be odd about the new release is that it would come with Android 4.4.2 KitKat installed on board, says the tipsters from South Korea, which might be a little outdated since most flagships are now jumping on the Lollipop bandwagon.


LG G4 rumored specs:
5.5-inch Quad HD Quantum Display, 1440×2560, 534ppi
Hexa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, 64-bit
Adreno 418 GPU
16MP f/1.8 AF rear camera with LED Flash
8MP front camera
Android 4.4.2 KitKat or Android 5.0 Lollipop
3000mah removable Li-Ion battery

As we approach the launch date, we might see more updates of these kind. We’re keeping an eye out for more, so stay tuned.

    Sana genuine leather ito di gaya ng Shamesung.

    • Yep, genuine leather.

      genuine leather nga tapos tatabonan lang ng jelly case lol. personally not a fan of the leather look on a phone and especially if it’s genuine (coming from Moto X experience). i understand some people will like the rustic look. but for me pag naluma na ito, it will look like you are talking to your wallet

      also i thought Snapdragon 810 ito? talaga bang malala ang problema ng 810 that LG decided to go with the weaker 808?

      now let’s see how much LG will undercut Samsung with this phone.

      removable back cover naman kung sakali lang pwede mo palitan ng trip mo na back cover

      there are 9 different colors and also if you notice ang ibang colors ay iba ang texture design.

      overall for me this is a great looking phone. way better than g3.

    • pekto says:


      IMO mas maganda at mas premium tingnan ang G2 at saka G3. G3 is close to perfect except for that two-tone color scheme.

      i’m biased against leather because i’ve had Moto X before and it looks gross after the leather wears out. good luck na lang kung makakabili ka sa Pinas ng maraming choices for backcover sa LG shops.

      if you ‘re not a fan of leather LG always provides options there are two variants of G4, the one with leather and the one without leather on the back.
      for me G2 is the ugliest among 3phones you have mentioned. i hate the slippery NONE REMOVABLE SHINY Plastic on the back of G2.

      I’m a fan of classic look of G4! especially the CRYSTAL PATTERN on the front.
      so for me G4 does really look better than G3.

      about the casing? yes i know where to buy i have both Z3 &G3 but never ako nagkaproblema sa casing ng G3 kasi alam ko marami mabibili sa greenhills sa mga retailer stores at mismo sa LG Stors meron so ganun din sa G4 mas aggressive ang LG than last year.

    • if you notice ang three phones sa left ay walang leather on the back. at ang mga nasa rightside ay meron leather.

      I’m inlove with the BLACK one! so much classic and elegant.

    • We can expect TWO VERSIONS OF THE LG G4 – one with a traditional plastic cover, and another that is fitted with leather.
      The plastic cover version will come in at least three colors, which appear to be white, grey, and gold. The leather version will then come in black, brown, red, light blue, gold, and yellow.

      The back of the phone is removable, as is the battery. There is a micro SD slot, and a “durable, sleek” body that “was designed with an idea user experience in mind.” The phone, according to this microsite, is 8.9mm thick.

      The 16MP camera, as you all know, includes an F1.8 aperture lens that LG claims captures more natural images, thanks to its “Color Spectrum Sensor.” It also has a fancy light trail effect mode, and the previously announced manual mode.

      As for the display, we already know that it measures in at 5.5-inches and with a QHD resolution, but LG is calling it a “Quantum” display. It’s supposed to deliver “brilliant, crips images” that are “rich and authentic in color,” while also remaining energy efficient.
