LG has unveiled its 2015 G4 Android smartphone in a renewed bid to wrestle control of the handset market from Apple and Samsung.
The LG G4 is thicker than its predecessor, the G3, measuring 9.9mm compared with 8.9mm, but it has the same rear-facing physical keys as the LG G3, and comes with a "natural arc" that LG claims will make it sit comfortably in the hand.
It will be available in real leather with six different colour options, as well as three versions in white, black and gold. The LG G4 has a 5.5in 2560x1440 IPS Quantum display, which is powered by a six-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor.
The LG G4 comes with 3GB Graphic RAM and runs Google's Android 5.0 Lollipop OS.
Lollipop comes skinned in LG's custom software, LG UX 4.0, which includes the Knock Code secure access tool, a built-in battery-saving mode and LG Health, the firm's answer to Samsung's Health app.
The LG G4 has a 16MP f/1.8 camera on the rear with laser autofocus, Optical Image Stabilisation 2.0 and a colour spectrum sensor that makes it the "widest aperture camera developed for a smartphone" and the most advanced on the market, according to LG.
The LG G3's 2.1MP front-facing camera has been upgraded to an 8MP offering on the G4, and the handset comes with a manual camera mode allowing users to change settings such as shutter speed, ISO levels and white balance.
LG was keen to point out that the LG G4 lets you transfer photos to a computer using a USB cable, so it looks like the future is finally here.
The LG G4 has a 3,000mAh removable battery offering a claimed 14 hours of talk time, along with support for LTE-A speeds, 32GB storage expandable via the onboard microSD slot and 100GB of free Google Drive storage.
The LG G4 will be available in the UK from 28 May, but there's no official word on pricing. Check back soon for our hands-on LG G4 review.
