Photos and facts about the LG G4 have leaked online two weeks ahead of its official reveal on 28 April. Leaked by the infamous Evan Blass, the blogger tweeted a link to a microsite containing images and specs for the LG G4.

The pictures show a phone similar in design to the superb LG G3, but with a range of different backs – including the leather covers teased in LG’s official invites and videos. Suggesting a customisable back similar to the Moto  X, there will be a choice of six different coloured leather backs, along with white, grey and silver textured plastic backs. These designs look really different and exciting, innovating where the likes of  the HTC One M9 hasn’t.

The leaks also suggest that the SD card storage will remain and the LG G4 will house a removable 3,000 mAh battery, a feature many Android fans thought was lacking in the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

The majority of the specs mentioned on the site, however, appear to just be placeholder, for instance, saying it will run Android KitKat. But the images themselves seem to be genuine and, if so, represent a potential second consecutive success story for the South Korean company.

What do you think of the images? Do you now rate the LG G4 higher or lower than the HTC One (M9), the Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge?
