Liveblog: LG's G4 announcement
Yet another major player is set to join the ranks of flagship smartphones today, and it's none other than the LG G4! The newest edition of the phone with rear buttons is to be unveiled today at simultaneous events held around the world. We're going to report live from NYC, so be sure to check our homepage regularly for updates!

So, welcome to our liveblog, where we'll be keeping you informed as the announcement event progresses. If you are the video streaming type, maybe you'd prefer heading over to our livestream post, but if you're in for a more relaxed experience, we guess the text and image-based liveblog below will be the preferred medium.

Before we get started, however, there's still some time to refresh our memories about what LG's latest and greatest is shaping up to be. If you could use a refresh, we have just what you need right here.

Without further ado, have fun following the event!

the black leather looks really awful hope it's not true. other ones are a bit better , but it's weird nonetheless ,I don't think everyone will like this design , looks like a lady's bag. probably will work as a girls phone ? I dunno am I missing something ?

There are different variants Well as the back is removable So you could swap the back depending on the occasion The most fashion minded could even go for swapping different colours and different styles . LG done a great job for making this phone's back removable.

It's always funny if someone sets their own thoughts for everyone else. Maybe YOU don't like the design and leather but there are OTHER people who will. It would also be good to wait till it's release to try it out befor judging..... I thought the S6 is a piece of grap from the design point of view but I had a hands on and it felt pretty great so you can't get the full experience by just watching some pics or YT videos.

Ya the green or yellow colors hell even the red leather intrest me.. I mean I love the flash so if I can get the red leather then a little lightning sticker put on the back it will be sorta like a fan case to the flash :) or using the green with a arrow for arrow. I like that there will finally be color options without having to spend 60$ on a case

i'm all for a removable back but they're really going backwards this year.

so save money is not a backward idea for example if you want to replace the backcover or the battery you would not have to pay for a technician to do it.

Lmfaoooooo Now this is funny. This person hasn't put Half the Release Information on here..Really Phone Arena..Informative even when you rewrote the article and took out your insensitive judgments while blogging? Dick Move. ..People this site gives you pieces of what's true. Check out the release on YouTube and compare.. How about " takes Jpeg and Raw shots simultaneously? " or the Calendar updates? Where's that info as much as many more..Misleading Ass Gossip Column..People try Forbes or CNET or even Engadget.. They are REAL information complete and accurate. Not this Annie Rewrite Enquire..
