The LG G4 is here, and it's a thing of beauty - from its leather bound rear to its spectacular camera. Let’s take a closer look.

Look & feel

The LG G4 has an attractive curved design with rounded edges and textured bezels. The big design news, however, is that it’s going to be available with a stunning premium leather back. The leather has been designed to develop and improve over time, to give the phone a vintage rustic look and feel.

The leather back not only looks great but feels really comfortable and easy to grip. And leather’s not the only option - a few coloured metallic backs will also be available.

The display is a super-sharp 5.5” Quad HD screen (twice as sharp as full HD). LG has dubbed it a 'quantum display', and they're confident that it will produce brighter, clearer colours and brilliant, crisp images.


The LG G4 is going to have an impressive feature-packed 16MP camera, with quick opening, super-fast auto-focus and an advanced image stabiliser that cuts down on shaky, blurry images. The images we've seen it take so far look pretty amazing.

But that's not all. There’s also an 8MP front-facing camera with a wide-angled lens for those ‘super-selfies’. And with LG’s gesture shot, you can take your selfies without pressing a button – you simply close you palm to activate the camera.

How it works

The LG G4 is powered by a speedy 64-bit Hexa-core processor, so it can handle multi-tasking, video streaming, gaming – and pretty much anything you can throw at it – without any slow-down or loss in quality.

And finally, it comes with a long lasting 3000mAh removable battery, and 32GB of internal storage, which you’ll be able to add to with a Micro SD Card.
