The LG G3 was a bit of a success for LG in 2014, so it seems logical that the company would want to follow it up with a successor in 2015.

Recently, it’s been reported that the G4, what’s believed to be the name for LG’s newest flagship, will feature a new design and even a new user experience. While the details were light when that report surfaced, the hopes were certainly high. However, according to a series of new images courtesy of Nowhereelse.fr, the G4 may look a lot like the G3 — but in all the right ways.

The images showcase a device that’s certainly sleek, and offers a gently curved back panel on the opposite side of a flat panel display. The screen won’t be curved like LG’s G Flex 2. On top of that, the button layout seems to be sticking to LG’s unique design decision, with the volume rocker sitting just below the camera, with the Power button in between them. The camera on the back will apparently be protruding a bit from the panel itself, something that smartphones have adopted as of late.

The microphone jack appears to be at the bottom of the handset, for those who like to slide their phones into their pockets upside down. The back of the handset is certainly similar to the design of the G3 as well, so if these early renders are any indicator of LG’s design path for the G4, the newest flagship will look quite a bit like last year’s model.

What do you think of the G4 based on these renders? Are you looking forward to its rumored unveiling in April?
