The new flagship from LG has been officially announced. The event to showcase the LG G4 kicked off without a hitch today, and LG's latest superphone made a powerful impression. With an already revealed leather backing and list of internal specs, we basically already knew all of the details, but here they are listed in full for your perusal:

  • Three different material choices for the back cover: One is a stitched leather over plastic back (includes light blue, black and tannish brown vegetable-dyed stitched leather) The other two are plastic backs. One has a ceramic paint, while the other has metallic elements and is similar to the G3.
