LG G3 spotted with rear-mounted buttons in leaked photo

After numerous hints, computer renderings and rumours, we now have our clearest indication yet of what the LG G3 will look like, thanks to a leaked image of the back of the handset.

Not yet officially announced by LG, the G3 appears to have rear-mounted images similar to the LG G2 and G Pro 2, but the volume and power buttons now look to be larger than before, hopefully making them easier to locate.

The power button has a metallic finish which matches the rear camera above it, and that camera is flanked by two components; one is thought to be a dual flash, similar to that found on the iPhone 5s and HTC One (M8) and helping to produce more natural light.

The second component, to the right of the camera, is a mystery. It could be a heartrate monitor, as found on the Samsung Galaxy S5, or a fingerprint scanner for increased security. The S5 and iPhone 5s have fingerprint scanners on their Home buttons, but the HTC One Max has its scanner on the back, so LG could be taking a similar route here with the G3. 

A note behind the phone states  “32GB / 16GB” which is thought to be a reference to storage options for the phone, along with “2GB / 3GB”, presumably referring to the amount of RAM on board. It isn’t clear if there will be two models of G3, or if the company is still deciding on how much storage and RAM to include with the new handset.
