Photos purportedly showing the LG G4 leak online

The phone in these images look like the LG G3, but you might notice some subtle differences. That's because it couldactually be pictures of the brand's yet-to-be-released flagship, the G4. An XDA Developer user called s3rv1cet3ch posteda folder of images on the forum, explicitly calling it the G4 Note. 

The user also pointed out that it has stylus on the top left corner, but if this is the Korean version of the device, that could very well be a TV antenna. After all, G3's Korean version has an antenna you can pull out on that exact spot.

Unlike its predecessor's circular components, this device has a square camera sensor and a rectangular power button. The photos of its interface below also indicate that it's loaded with Android Lollipop out of the box. According to Yonhap News, the G4 is supposed to have a curved, 5-inch Quad HD display -- we can't really see any curve in these images, but it might be due to the phone's angle. Of course, this could be a different phone altogether.

Some eagle-eyed folk have spotted "M8936" in the baseband version, which would suggest this phone holds a Snapdragon 610 -- not really what you'd expect in a flagship (where an 8-series would be more appropriate). Unless this was an early prototype with different innards? Either way, we won't know for sure until LG officially unveils the new flagship phone by the end of April.
