LG’s been steadily dropping details of the upcoming G4 in recent weeks, but unfortunately for the Life’s Good crew, it looks like their April 28 reveal may have been spoiled.
What appears to be a microsite dedicated to the LG G4 has been discovered weeks ahead of LG’s event. The site includes a ton of images of a leather-backed LG G4 in several different colors, like brown, red, and yellow, as well as while, gold, and black non-leather backs. And I’m sure that some of you will be happy to know that LG hasn’t abandoned the removable battery like some other Android manufacturers, as the site says that the G4’s 3000mAh battery can be removed.
In addition to a removable battery, the LG G4’s got a microSD card slot and a “slim arc design” that looks a bit reminiscent of the LG G Flex 2. The G4’s also got a 5.5-inch IPS Quantum display with a resolution of 2560x1440 and a body that’s 8.4mm thick. The 16-megapixel rear camera has a number of special features of its own, like an f/1.8 aperture, a Color Spectrum Sensor that LG says will help colors in your photos to look natural, super fast autofocus, Optical Image Stabilization 2.0, and a manual mode that’ll let you tweak shutter speed, ISO, white balance, exposure, and more.
Unfortunately, the full-on spec page included on this LG G4’s microsite appears to be full of LG G3 specs, like a 13-megapixel rear camera and Android 4.4.2 KitKat. I don’t know about you, but I’m thinking that LG probably wouldn’t release its new Android flagship for 2015 with KitKat in tow.
While nothing is official until LG says it is, today’s leak lines up with all of the information that we know about the G4 so far. For example, LG’s event invitation features a leather design that looks like the design on the back of the G4, and several of the features listed on LG’s site are the same as what the company has teased so far. We’ll have to wait for the G4’s full spec list to leak, but with a leather back and a removable battery, the G4’s definitely got some features that’ll help it stand out from the flagship Android pack this year.
