LG G4 to have f/1.8 aperture lens, and possibly a leather back

LG's latest teasers for the LG G4 indicate that the phone might have a leather back, as well as a f/1.8 aperture lens for the camera.

Published onApril 7, 2015


Last week LG started rolling out invites for an upcoming event, set for April 28th. While LG didn’t officially state the purpose of the event, it did offer several not-so-subtle hints that made it pretty clear the LG G4’s launch was imminent. Now LG has officially confirmed that April 28th will be the big day, and they have even released a few details about what to expect from the phone.

Earlier, LG showed off a few details regarding its , and now a new image further hints at the possibility of the LG G4 featuring a leather back, while also revealing that the phone’s camera will feature an f/1.8 aperture lens.

Focusing on the leather design, it’s unclear if LG is hinting at a real leather back, similar to the option found on the Moto X, or a faux leather back that’s more akin to the Galaxy Note series. There’s also the possibility that leather will be just one of the material options available, or perhaps the leather shown off in LG teasers doesn’t reflect the back materials at all and instead hints at something that we are unaware of at this stage. Honestly, we really can’t say for sure what to expect.

Even the rumor mills seem quite divided, as leaked images show a faux-metal back as we saw with the LG G3, and while early reports claimed the phone would use a Snapdragon 810, more recent claims suggest that LG is taking a step backward and using a Snapdragon 808. Thankfully, we don’t have too much longer to wait until all the cards are laid out on the table. Of course, we’ll be there to report all the LG G4-related news as it hits later this month.
