The rumor mill may be working hard with the buzz about LG's crazy next-generation G4, but images posted today have sparked interest in the upcoming handset that's set to rival the Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 in the premium segment.
With the LG G4 global debut less than a month away, we've been seeing new images of the purported device on a near daily basis. Multiple images of both the front panel and the rear shell of the G4 have surfaced online. The design looks to be in line with other images that have been making the rounds online.
The high quality shots show the device's rear side with the power buttons and volume keys, similar to that of the LG G3. Notably, the power button has changed from a circle to more of a rounded rectangle, notes Android Central.
The images also suggest that the next-generation handset will adopt slightly modified design, though at this stage, it's difficult to say whether the handset has a plastic or aluminum casing.
On the software front, nothing much has been changed. The device appears to retain more-or-less familiar user interface (UI). Of course, the G4 will come with the latest version of Android mobile OS.
Much of the speculation surrounding the G4's launch is concerned with whether LG will be releasing two versions of the device. A recent report claimed that LG might unveil the G4 Note phablet. The large screen sized phablet will apparently be LG's attempt at competing with their rivals.
The standard LG G4 model could arrive with a 5.3-inch 3K screen, a Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of native storage, a microSD card, a 20-megapixel camera with OIS, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, 4G LTE, Android 5.0 Lollipop, and a 3,400mAh battery inside.
While a concrete plan for the LG G4's launch is yet to even be announced, rumours have May as a likely release date.
