Design

Earlier this week @evleaks posted an alleged render of the device’s brushed metallic back with LG logo. Initially we heard that, in LG G3, LG will be leaving its plastic love, and will embrace a classic metallic finish, the one that never attracts fingerprints. The same source also posted the renders of the device in black and white versions, but unfortunately hiding its back with some case. Today a Greek website reported that the phone is coming with a polycarbonate material, and won’t feature a premium metallic body, that makes us suspect about the originality of the leaked renders from @evleaks. May be, LG is using the same polycarbonate material with a metallic finish.  Anyway more details will be unveiled when they officially unveils the device on May 27.
