Leaked image of LG G3’s back suggests it won’t be a fingerprint magnet

When the LG G2 was released last year, we loved the device but for the back because it’s a huge fingerprint magnet. It attracts smudges pretty easily but apparently, its successor should fix that.


A new image from @evleaks gives us a closer look at LG G3’s back and as he mentions, “LG G3, fingerprint-magnet no more.” The back seems to incorporate a brushed metal finish and we won’t be surprised if it’s the same faux metal finish Samsung uses on its phones. It also looks just a tad similar to the LG G Flex‘s back, which to remind you is self healing. We would love that for sure.

We now know that the LG G3 will be unveiled on May 27 and well, we can’t wait. It should be the first smartphone from a major manufacturer to come with a QHD display and we can’t wait to have a look at that pixel dense display. LG seems to be working on fixing on the little wrongs of the LG G2. As a recent leak suggests, there’s a new flatter interface in the works and now, we know that the back isn’t going to be a fingerprint magnet.
