Counting down the days until the LG G4 is officially announced? Let us join you with a rundown of what we know so far about LG's newest flagship device.

Juno Cho, LG's mobile chief, calling the G4 radically different from the older units the company has released, sets up quite the anticipation for the new flagship, fueling a number of rumors about the device. For starters, the LG G4 is presumed to be fitted with a metal casing, following the current trend. However, many have shot down this rumor, claiming that a metal body will not be possible if wireless charging capabilities will be included.

Should the LG G4 still have a plastic body, a more stylish option may be available through a leather-back version of the device, which may come in gray, yellow, black, blue and red and two-texture options.

Despite the pervasive idea that bigger is better, the LG G4 is scaling down a bit to accommodate a 5.3-inch display, made possible by being reportedly bezel-free.

Speaking of displays, the G4 is set to be the next recipient of LG's curved screens already seen with the G Flex and G Flex 2, which will also pack in a crisp 2560 by 1440 quad-HD resolution.

For the shutter bugs, the LG G4 is touted to include a 16 MP rear camera with an f1.8 aperture. In front, an 8 MP camera is likely to be installed. These are complemented by a Quick Shot feature that activates the camera app simply by pressing the volume button down twice. Going into Expert mode also lets photos be grouped in a single album based on where they were taken.

Other leaked information has indicated an SD card slot feature, removable 3,000 mAh battery and apps like Smart Calendar, a swifter image gallery and Smart Notice 2.0. The LG UX 4.0 that will be finding its way to the G4 is an updated platform designed to make using the device easier and more convenient by offering excellent customization and providing information needed the most.

The inclusion of a purported stylus similar to the S Pen could also help improve use of the device.

Initial specs also have the LG G4 running the latest version of Android Lollipop on a Snapdragon 808 chip, 3 GB RAM and either 16 GB or 32 GB of storage.

The LG G4 is scheduled for an official unveiling in New York on April 28.
