Following that massive leak last weekend of the LG G4, many of us were wondering if LG would have anything to show us come April 28th. Which is when they are going to officially unveil the G4 in New York City – we will be there! Earlier today, LG posted a picture of the LG G4 on their Facebook page. Now they’ve posted another one on their Instagram page. LG posts a photo – the one above – which does not have a leather back, but does have a rather cool design on the back. With the caption “You have not seen everything yet. See the Great, Feel the Great on April 28th.” I don’t know about all of you, but that definitely sounds like them talking about that massive leak that happened last weekend.

It appears that LG might be doing something similar to what Motorola has with MotoMaker. Allowing you to choose the back of the device. However, if it is a removable back, they can just sell the backs separately. It looks like we’ve got both leather and plastic backs. Perhaps we’ll see wood as well? It appears that back is removable, some say that means the battery is removable. Not completely. Look at the Moto G, back is removable but the battery is not. Although I sure hope it is removable. That’d be a big thing for LG, especially after Samsung decided to go with a non-removable one. We’re also hearing that it’ll feature a 16MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization, which has a F1.8 lens, that’s pretty crazy for a smartphone. It’ll also feature a 5.5-inch QHD display, which LG says is much better than last year’s panel. It’ll be about 8.9mm thick, and also have a battery around 3,000mAh in size. After the LG G Flex 2 fiasco with the Snapdragon 810, we have a feeling we won’t see that in the LG G4. Leaks and rumors are telling us it’s a Snapdragon 808.
Looks like LG might be trying to use that big leak from last week to their advantage. Which is interesting, and we’ll see if it works out for them.
