After lots of teasers and plenty of leaks, LG today made its flagship G4 official at an event in London. You’re probably already familiar with its specifications, but LG is confident the device will still surprise you when you see its super-sharp display and experience its groundbreaking camera.

Like its predecessor, the G4 sports a 5.5-inch Quad HD screen — which has been improved by LG’s new Quantum Display technology — and it’s powered by a six-core Snapdragon 808 processor that was designed specifically for this device.

One of the features LG is particularly proud of with the G4 is its new 16-megapixel camera, which is the first smartphone sensor with an f/1.8 aperture. LG says it will deliver “professional grade” photos and excellent performance in low-light, while its laser autofocus will help you capture your shots faster.

The G4 also boasts 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 3,000mAh battery that promises to last more than a day in between charges. It’s also removable, so even if you do run out of juice before the end of the day, you can pop a fresh battery in to keep you going.

The G4 will be available with a genuine leather back in a number of colors, which makes it “more beautiful” and easier to hold than other smartphones, LG says. If you prefer not to have that, however, there will be all-plastic variants, too.

The G4 will make its debut in South Korea tomorrow before launching in the U.S. in the coming weeks.
