A new set of photos published on XDA Developers claim to show LG’s upcoming G4 Note flagship smartphone. The images show a device with design similar to that of the G Flex 2, which was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year, but with a stylus.
It’s unclear if the device shown in these leaked images has an all metal body like reports have claimed the LG flagship will offer. One notable quality of the design, however, is that a stylus for the device appears to be located at the top left of the phone. This lends credit to the possibility that these images are of the G4 Note, not the standard G4. The G4 Note is said to be a higher-end device than the G4, similar to what Samsung offers with its Galaxy Note phablet line-up. Some, however, have suggested that what appears to be the stylus is actually just an antenna.

The software running on the device is Android 5.0 Lollipop with LG’s custom skin overtop. The interface is similar to what we’ve seen from LG in the past with rounded toggles and relatively calm color schemes.
Details regarding LG’s plans and devices for the remainder of 2015 have been sparse so far. The company reportedly pushed back the launch of its G4 flagship from March to April due to increased competition from Samsung and HTC. The G4 Note phablet has been rumored several times before and is allegedly more powerful and larger than the G4 will be, although launch details have remained a mystery.
With all of that said, these images should be taken with a gain of salt until LG officially reveals the details…
