South Korean consumer electronics major, LG has finally pulled the wraps off the much awaited flagship smartphone G4.

"We are living up to our promise of Innovation for a Better Life with a fashionable, premium smartphone that is more focused on delivering a balanced user experience that can compete with the best of the best," said Juno Cho, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

"We wanted to give consumers a truly human-centric device that combined the analog sensibilities with technologies that delivered real world performance. From the design to the camera to the display to the UX, this is the most ambitious phone we've ever created," he added.

The new LG G4 boasts Slim-Arc design language, which runs along its entire body, highlighted by a display with a subtle curvature. The phone will also be made available in handcrafted, genuine full grain leather in six colours.

Besides the leather cover, LG G4's other USP is its feature-rich 16mp camera on the rear-side. It boasts wide F1.8 aperture lens that allows 80 percent more light to reach the sensor. To enhance the photography experience under low-condition, the company has incorporated OIS 2.0, which doubles the performance of the improved OIS+ by expanding the range of image stabilization from one degree to two degrees on the X- and Y-axis and adding a third axis, making LG G4, industry's top-notch camera phone. It also houses 8mp snapper on the front.
