Fashionable gadgets are the hot new trend among tech companies that are looking to shed their geeky personas and appeal to a broader audience.
LG says that its new smartphone uses premium leather, on par with name brand handbags found in stores on 5th Avenue in New York City and it takes three months to process.
LG G4’s leather back undergoes a special treatment as part of this this three-month process, one that the company said it took three to find, that resist water stains and scratches.
All models of the LG G4 sport a gentle curve that isn’t a dramatic as the LG G Flex 2, but said to make it 20% stronger in durability compared to the G3, according to LG’s drop tests.
The official LG G4 dimensions give it a 148.9mm height x 76.1mm width x 6.3mm to 9.8mm depth due to that sloped curve. It feels light in the hand with a weight of 155g.
The LG G4 is powered by an Hexa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with Adreno 418 GPU paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB space of internal storage. There is a microSD card slot onboard which supports up to 2TB more space.

LG G4’s display measures out to the same 5.5 inches diagonally as the G3 and it has an IPS LCD screen, but it now it’s considered a “quantum” display.
LG is driving toward a cinema-industry standard of color perfection known as Digital Cinema Initiatives or DCI. It touts LG G4 as 98% DCI compliant, while the S6 AMOLED is 110% compliant AMOLED, giving it that infamous – for better or worse – oversaturated look.
