The LG G4 smartphone has finally arrived, putting an end to speculation and leaks about what it will offer.

The device, which you can get with a real-leather back panel and an ‘arc’ shape, will come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which can be upgraded via microSD to 128GB.

A 16 megapixel camera with a F1.8 lens and a colour spectrum sensor will help users take good quality pictures, the phone can also capture 4K video. An 8MP front facing camera is also included on the 5.5 inch Quantum display.

Users will be able to swap out the 3,000mAh Battery by removing the back, which will power the Adreno 400 GPU and a Snapdragon six-core 808 processor alongside an X10 LTE modem.

The G4 runs the Android Lollipop 5.1 software with the UX 4.0 0.
