LG G4 first cases show up, new image shows the slight curve of its display

Posted: , by Victor H.

The LG G4 rumor mill has started running at full speed and after we saw the first teasers with the alleged dimensions of the device and then the full-on leaked press renders, now a new listing at Chinese retailers shows the first cases for the upcoming gadget that you can order right now, and once again shows case makers are confident in the veracity of these recent leaks.

These alleged LG G4 cases confirm expectations that the phone will continue the tradition of having its physical buttons on its back, with two separate cut-outs on the sides - allegedly, for a dual-LED flash and the infra-red auto-focus assist light. 

LG G4 first cases show up, new image shows the slight curve of its display
The basic cases are now available for curious buyers for around $1.50 at Chinese retailers.

Another interesting illustration by profound leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer shows that the LG G4 will indeed have a slightly curved display. Notice the straight red line and how the curved display deviates from it. As we've mentioned earlier, LG's new mid-rangers including phones like the LG Magna and LG Spirit also come with a similar slight curve to the screen. This, however, does not necessarily mean that the screen will have the flexible qualities and damage-resistance as the recent LG G Flex 2.

Finally, let us remind you that latest leaks paint the following picture for the LG G4: a 5.3-inch to 5.7-inch screen size with a Quad HD resolution, a Snapdragon 810 system chip under the hood, a 16- or 20-megapixel main camera, and a notable inclusion of a fingerprint scanner with the possibility of some sort of a payment system introduction by LG.

Take a look at these first leaked cases for the handset right below and feel free to share your thoughts on the G4: are you looking forward to it?

There will be a premium device from LG later this year according to them.

LG admitted there is a fault in early batches and you can get it repaired for free. I did that and was not a single problem.

"way" too thick? Ppl are never satisfied. Rather have it this thick with thick battery. Or do u want an iPhone battery in it?

Noy the g4 for sure. Maybe it's a g flex 2 case.

looks like it may have some GFlex qualities... self healing, a slight curve, big screen. Obviously im going based off the pictures and have little to back me up with this decision but it looks possible.

Finally someone understands that phones need big batteries.

Like the HTC One M7, M8 and M9 similarity issue, it's the same here with LG 2, 3 and 4.

Will Samsung be the only one that's radically different this year?
