"Early" LG G4 press render shows up, suggests the phone is slightly curved
LG already confirmed that it's getting ready to unveil a new flagship smartphone: the LG G4. The new handset could be officially announced in April or May, and, according to a previous report, it's going to be "radically" different from the G3.

Now, we can take a look at what's supposed to be an "early, non final" LG G4 press render (click on the image on the left to see it in full size). Posted on Twitter by @OnLeaks, the render allegedly shows the back of a black G4. It seems that the handset is slightly curved, while there's a noticeable bump around its camera. Overall, though, the rear of this alleged G4 doesn't look too different from the rear of the LG G3.

Reportedly, the G4 measures 148.9 x 76.5 x 9.9 mm, thus being a tad taller, wider, and thicker than the LG G3 (which measures 146.3 x 74.6 x 8.9 mm). That's interesting, because we heard that the G4 would sport a 5.3-inch display, instead of the 5.5-inch screen of the G3 - so it might offer a lower screen-to-body ratio.

The upcoming LG flagship smartphone should be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, and might feature a fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button on its back.

It's said that LG is planning to sell at least 10 million G4 smartphones around the world.

I honestly hope it is curved. Maybe just a bit less than the G Flex, but having just that slight curve makes it look so sleek.

God no! That curve or any curve is not sexy at all.

OH YES IT IS buddy. Imagine a sleek curve with stainless metal on its back. That would be something

LG made the best fridge I ever bought. Stainless steel with a beautiful curve yet STILL able to fit all the juice and milk in the doors. These guys know what they're doing. Serious, Samsung fridges need some new engineers. Barely fits a rack of ribs in the freezer.

It's a innovative design I love to have a curve screen.

Since the LG flex curve doesnt follow the leggs curve then I call the flex and any phone with that kind of curve a total failure. Its uncorotable to be put in your pocket since its curve is the opposite of your leggs.

Remember the same s**t for S6 and M9 rumours, no they are fake, no way M9 will looks same as M8, no way S6 will not have removable back. Yet all of them came true. When it comes to leaks if they are constantly showing the same design then it always end up being true, lets see next G4 leaks and compare them.

So, it's allegedly wider than the LG G Flex 2? And, almost the same height? Unf... Not sure how I feel about this, hopefully it doesn't turn out to be true. I liked how compact the G3 felt in my hands. The G Flex 2 stretches past my personal comfort zone.

LG is growing mad, bigger phone with smaller display than it predecessor?

Larger yet a smaller screen? They must be doing something with the front then. Maybe adding that finger print scanner?

I think they have been hanging around HTC too much. Adding size for anything besides a bigger screen is a death sentence. Amazing that only Apple and Samsung realize this.

If this is true... don't think it's enough to go up against the S6. Again, if this is real, kind of disappointed in what HTC and LG released as flagships this year.

So now we all know why they are releasing a more premium flagship.

I find it truly amusing how many of these commenters speak as if this is something completely verified, and even more, as if it was final. Very amusing, indeed.

oookay smaller screen bigger size and bit thicker, if they offer larger battery then count me in...

I doubt it's a small screen. If they managed to fit a 5.5" inch screen on the G Flex 2, and the G4 is said to have similar dimensions, I imagine the G4 will also sport a 5'5". Plus, didn't LG state that they deemed it perfect size for them? No way it's going to be any smaller than 5.5".

Not a fan of this render at all. I'm a huge lg fan and hope they really didn't ruin an amazing device like this. Glad im getting the g flex 2. While it still needs optimization I rather have it than whatever phone looks like that.

I was holding out for the G4 but I hope they offer a non-curved variant. I also, since it's so early, I hope the info about the size of the screen being reduced is wrong too. LGs screen to body ratio was always the best on its phones. They better not mess it up...or I'll finally just switch to an iPhone. Not a fan of the other android phones out there.

It's a very subtle curve. You could see it in their new mid rangers they announced at MWC.

Taller, yet with a smaller screen... could that mean front stereo speakers (Like the HTC)?

Thats what they said about the G3. The G3 Is actually better than the S5 in every way.

It's not, the s5 as a better screen even at the lower res, see note 4 and s6 to see how to,do a QHD screen

27. PANIC (Posts: 125; Member since: 06 Mar 2014)


I think LG G4 will go down to a smaller screen around 5.2" in order to stay in competition with the Galaxy S6 and HTC M9....and also bearing in mind that they have already said in the 2nd half 2015 they will come up with sth higher than G4, so i guess they will bring up another phone this year around 5.5 - 5.7" (with stylus pen propably) in order to compete in the phablet market... Whatever the case I am sure LG will come up with sth stylish and premium....Looking forward to see what's next by LG

I hope it is not going to be true. Curved, not bad, but still questionable (especially on the usefulness and ergonomics of it). But tad taller, wider, and thicker? That's quite stupid.

Yup definitely agree, LG have changed their logo. Also this render looks like a hybrid of the G2, G3 and G Flex 2. It has the Flex's curves, the G3's brushed pattern and flash/laser layout and the G2's buttons, with the oblong power button over the G3's rounded one. It still keeps the concave aesthetic however. Obviously the bulge in the camera is associated with the larger sensor. This is unlikely to be the finished product however. Looking forward to it.

I can't imagine they're adding size for the sake of it, there must be some added functionality. If the speakers and fingerprint sensor are on the back though, I'm totally stumped as to what that could be.

Don't make it bigger! Even if they add a 5,7˝ screen, I see no point. G3 was already borderline big, this one is crossing the line!

Ridiculous to still have the speaker at the back of the phone.

Even Samsung learned to move it to an area where it will be better suited when the phone is lying flat on its back.

I'm sure LG has got a potential S6 killer on the making...even with the crappy snapdragon 810.

54. j2001m (Posts: 2789; Member since: 28 Apr 2014)


There is no way they can make a killer on ther hands, the only thing they can do is try and offer 3k or 4k and a bigger screen but the screen will be crap over the s6 screen and the 810 will over heat even more, they also got a problem with the 810 and the size of the phone to slim and it be a load of crap like the flex

Hm, if they go 20mp it will just be like htc, crap, samsung went with the best cam going at 16mp as used on the note 4 and then added the new lens and then hit htc even harder and did the same to the front cam

Where will the 0.7 bezel be..with this size of body?ive gotten to like lg for thier small bezels allaround. This is not a new disign. This is the g flex disgn.. If they will throw this im sure they wont meet the 10 million goal.. More pixels will only mean more battery drain.

If LG has shown a dual edge display at CES. Why they dont they bring it to compete with samaung..im sure it will be a better option than a flex phone..if consumers or fans would want a curved phone they would already gone for the g flex..or leave room for the g flex to make sales..

I'm getting more disappointed as more info gets released and confirmed...please don't let it be curved, please don't let it have a larger body with a smaller screen...
