Despite suffering an extremely revealing leak a few days ago, LG is still content to tease its latest flagship, the LG G4, at its own pace. It’s now teased the leather cover in its entirety, mentioning on Facebook that theĀ LG G4 and its vegetable-tanned leather cover are designed to be “authentic luxury”. It’s definitely a brave move by LG, and we’ll have to see if it pays off, but we know that LG will also be launching plastic versions if leather isn’t exactly your cup of tea.

We’re also getting wind that instead of the Snapdragon 810 processor that is featuring most flagships announced to date, including LG’s own LG G Flex 2, the LG G4 will instead be powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 808, which is a very interesting turn of events. As suggested by their model numbers, the Snapdragon 808 is marginally less powerful than the 810, but if the overheating issues on the 810 are to be believed, then LG’s decision to go with the 808 for the LG G4 may be a smart one.

    A little disappointed if they go with the 808, it’s important enough that you would expect something brand new. Last year the g3 was the first to have QHD, and the laser stabiliser in the camera. Seems that besides the leather look, there really isn’t anything that hasnt been done yet. I dont count the note 3 leather because it ain’t leather.

    LG needs to improve the speaker on their flagship phones. The processor is an interesting, if not disappointing choice. While I’m interested in the camera they will announce, without great speakers I’m probably going to stick to my HTC One.

    Without any doubt it is fake.Look at the bezels they are way too thick and also snapdragon 808 is a 20nm chip not 28nm.
