Is this what we can expect from the LG G4?

A report on website Techmaniacs indicates that the LG G4 could be smaller, sharper and faster than its popular predecessor. The latest rumoured specifications for the Korean firm's flagship model suggest it will feature a 5.3-inch display and a Snapdragon 810 chipset.

We are no nearer knowing exactly when LG will unveil the successor to the hugely popular G3 but the report sheds some light on what may be under the phone's shiny exterior when it does finally arrive later this year.

The latest leak suggests LG is aiming to downsize in 2015 and has opted for a 5.3-inch screen (its predecessor had a 5.5-inch display). It will be a Quad HD screen again though, so users can expect a sharp picture.

It will also reportedly feature the fast Snapdragon 810 processor, which is set to power the majority of high-end smartphones this year. There had been rumours that the manufacturer of the processor, Qualcomm, was struggling to ship the 810 but the firm has now confirmed that there will be no delays.

The G4 could also house an improved 16-megapixel camera while optical image stabilisation and laser autofocus is likely to return. The final rumoured spec is that the smartphone will have 3GB of RAM memory.

All of the leaked information is just rumour and it remains unclear when LG will finally tell us what they have in store for the G4. However, the G3 was revealed at its own event in May last year so an official unveil for the G4 seems likely in the spring.
