A new image leak of the LG G3 shows off the brushed effect black and white back plates
We have pretty much seen the LG G3 in all its glory for the most part. A tipster sent us another image of the next LG flagship with the brushed plastic effects on a black and white unit.

The picture is medium quality, so there is not much detail other than what we have seen already, but it does accentuate the brushed back-plate motif we saw when the gold G3 image leaked a couple days ago.

We are not able to confirm the source that sent us this pic, but along with the picture, the tip did state a 5.5-inch screen for the device. Compared to the recently released LG Isai FL in Japan, the G3 will be shorter, narrower, and thinner, which is an interesting twist to another rumor floating around about the size of the device. Furthermore, the source says that the back plate is removable. We are not sure that would be part of the final package in all markets, but a removable back piece is certainly a possibility for some areas.

While we get to see the black and white somewhat clearly, what we presume to be a gold G3 up top is resting with the screen-side up. The finish looks a lot more polished than one might expect at first. Overall, the picture is consistent with other sightings of the LG G3 that have made their way to the internet. May 27th should tell us more, but we will always take an early peek if the opportunity arises.

Thanks to our anonymous tipster for the image!

Looks a lot nicer than a band-aid.

Front camera is under the glass. It just doesn't show up well with this angle/lighting.

That is not the top of the phone, they do not put the microphone hole at the top of the phone. Its always at the bottom where your mouth is at while holding up to your ear. So clearly that is the bottom of the device. Plus that is a solid button, no holes for sound to escape if that were even supposed to be the speaker.

what are you talking about, several oems put microphones on the top when you need to use the speaker, example nokia lumia icon, 1020, and 1520 have several microphones, others do so as well so is not uncommon, and that looks like the normal

The microphone hole you see on top of the device is an active noise cancelling mic...

There are three two to four microphones on s phone. My note 3 has three mics for example. The main takeaway here is that you should not comment unless you know something

you are dumb. that is the top of the phone obviously. it even looks strikingly similar to the top of the g2. they are not going to put a home button on the g3. and what you see that you think is a mic is the IR blaster.

The camera is there but difficult to see because of the potato quality image

The image resolution is 1377 x 1012;

If it's like the LG Isai, the front camera is placed on the bottom bezel, so that's why it doesn't appear at the top.

(And if you're wondering why in the world they'd put a front camera on the bottom of the phone, remember these are the same geniuses who decided to put the buttons on the back.)

The top bezel in this image looks a little bigger than the last Isai that I saw. Hopefully the front camera is on the top.

Well Isai phones are asymmetrically designed on the top and bottom. So I'm pretty positive the Front facing camera is going to be on the top. Also, the G3 is going to have smaller bezels and better design than the Isai FL. The G2 has smaller bezels than the original Isai and has a better symmetrical design. I'm always looking forward for this!

It took me a while to get used to the buttons on the back and now I actually love it I think LG shoved the buttons on the back to have a smaller bezel on the G2

LOL, nice.
Not that I have a problem with buttons on the back, but I do get some strange looks.

Hey, I did call them geniuses. I'll leave whether I meant that sarcastically up to interpretation. ;)

The Camera + 2 sensors is on the left side of the phone (right on the pic cause its on reverse.. you can see it if you look closely.
