New LG G4 press renders show up, front and side now visible
After yesterday's early glimpse at what's said to be a non final LG G4 press render, now we can take a look at more renders, this time showing the upcoming handset from the front and sides.

Published by French website Nowhereelse, the new renders are, once again, non-final. However, while some things might change before LG announces the G4, it's said that the real handset won't be too different from what we're seeing below. As always when it comes to leaks, though, we can't be sure of anything until things get official.

As we told you yesterday, it seems that the G4 is indeed slightly curved, though definitely not as curved as the LG G Flex 2. We still don't know what size the screen of the G4 has, but it appears to be around 5.5 inches.

Rumors have it that the LG G4 is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, while other features could include a 20 MP rear camera, a front-facing camera of at least 5 MP, and a fingerprint scanner. LG is planning to announce the G4 next quarter, likely in April or May.

Take a look at the alleged LG G4 press renders below, and let us know if you like what you're seeing.

Mmmmmm...
Nice device. Very beautiful.
But I think it is just an old prototype. That LG logo is old

No that is the new LG logo. Look at the G in the render.

No the new logo has a smooth G. Your link even shows the changes from the old to the new.

Either way the LG logo is ugly and needs to be updated. Especially the circle thing.

Yeah, that's better than LG G3... But not G2.

Now please, tell me how this doesn't look like a copy paste of the Flex 2?

It looks like Flex 2, but at least it don't have 2550 mAh battery and glass back. Still this 810...

38. alex3run (Posts: 710; Member since: 18 May 2014)


And that's good that LG G Flex 2 doesn't have soapy back glass.

Glass is the worst material for the back of device. Mat plastic, kevlar, metal etc. are better.

its BEAUTIFUL!

one thing i hate is the speaker on the back's right side.

i prefer it to be on the bottom.

i love the SLIM SIDE BEZELS!
I love the CURVED body !
now i wanna know about the battery capacity?
i have no issue with the thickness since its has a curved back.

Looks like there's a removable back, so hopefully there's a micro SD slot. I'm just worried that the fingerprint scanner is like the Samsung S5 with a swipe motion.

You know what would've looked good? The G3's design, with the G2's footprint.
LG needs to realize that the majority of people outside don't want a phablet, they want a 5" compact smartphones. Give us a 5-5.2" flagship and those who want a bigger phone will go for the 5.5" G Flex 2.

You're right. I hope the G4 is not any bigger, at least the same size of the G3.

22. rnagic (Posts: 148; Member since: 13 Jul 2014)


I agree with the 5" theory. Even if they do release a "compact" version, it will most likely be so watered-down, that you would be forced to buy the phablet.

The G3 is my primary now, but I would much prefer the size of the G2.

Bigger footprint than the G3. Thanks but no thanks. G2 was the perfect size. G3 too big. Can't even imagine G4

Agreed. I hate Apple, but the iPhone 6 is the perfect size. Samsung S6 is the largest phone I would want.

too bad it will be using s810.

If that's the real one they have a winner, but I'm worried about the perfomance.

This design actually looks like it would be the successor to the LG G Pro 2

If the Note 5 is anything like the S6, this will (probably) be my next phone.

If this is close to the actual G4, then it is too big for me. Throw in the 810 and I am reluctant to take that plunge. A shame too. I loved the G2 and G3. But I am always rooting for them.

If the battery isn't user replaceable, does it have metal body unlike their last year's flagships?

Give me a good camera and fantastic battery life and I'm all in.

Not much different design from G3, but I like it. If it's curved OLED screen+3500 mAh battery I am sold.

I really hope they don't use the sd810, overheating seems imminent like the flex 2 and that m9 showing the warning. I've got a g3 and it overheats like crazy and ive had it shut down on me more times than id like to imagine (probably around 100 times in at least 5 months) also being so sluggish and stuttery. It has improved since lollipop and since i flashed it but 2 weeks later bam LAGagainagain. I own an iPhone 5s and a lumia 930 - coming from an nom biased opinion - i prefer windows.

looks pretty awesome tbh, hopefully the back is some like brushed metal, i like the slight curved front, that LG logo is ugly AF though.

Looks great..but i would want atleast 1 front facing speaker at the bottom bezel.

1. This is just a RENDER.
2. The LG Mobile chief said the G4 will be radically different than before. Also, where is the new fingerprint scanner they were talking about?
3. This is probably a g flex 2 variant or some kind, as even the thickness is almost the same (9.9 vs 9.4mm).
4. There is no way LG would use the same design over again because the G3 changed quite a bit from the G2 and G2 from Optimus G, so we know that LG is capable and not afraid to change their designs up each year.
5. After seeing the S6 and the bad receptions of the M9, LG will definitely not risk pulling and Apple and HTC. They said this year they will strive for the 3rd biggest global phone manufacturer.

Agree with you, but the fingerprint scanner will be in the power button on the back of the phone

All looks good..only thing im afriad and might keep me away is the thickness,for that thicknes 9.9 mm it better be a 4000mAH battery!

Looks awesome. The only let down will be the glossy plastic backing. I don't mind plastic as long as it's matte or sandstone or that rubbery plastic material on the 1st gen Moto X.
