Photos of leather-backed case leaked online…by LG

LG’s upcoming G4 smartphone could prove to be a style revolution to the dull metal and plastic design of many current mobile devices, if supposedly new leaked images are to be believed.

Photos purporting to be official renders of the LG G4 were accidentally put online by the company on its own site.

These were quickly grabbed and published by Evan Blass, the man behind the infamous @evleaks Twitter account, showing off the device from a variety of angles.

The pictures also show a variety of rather swanky leather rear panels, available in several colours (black, red, purple, white, gold and tan), alongside more traditional plastic backs.

The LG G4 is expected to be officially unveiled on April 28 at the company’s ‘See the Great’ events in Seoul, New York, Paris, London, Singapore and Istanbul.

The device is set to be the company’s most powerful yet, with information obtained by Greek website Techmaniacs back in January claiming that the LG G4 will feature top of the line hardware, being powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chipset, and 3GB of RAM.

It’s also expected to feature a 5.5-inch, quad HD screen, a replaceable 3,000mAh battery, and a microSD card slot.

Where it really stands out though is in its camera, which receives a significant upgrade, coming with a speedy f/1.8 camera helped by an infrared colour accuracy sensor, laser autofocus and a full-blown manual mode for experts.
