Korean electronics company LG unveiled its hotly anticipated new flagship Android G4 phone on Tuesday during press events held in several cities, including New York City and London.

While the company has upped its smartphone capabilities and usability, the G4 is also smart-looking with a vegetable-tanned leather back.

It is also available in plastic with a metallic finish.

The G4 boasts a 16-megapixel camera with optical-image stabilization and an aperture of F/1.8 to capture photos in low light, the company announced.

The new phone also has a 3,000 milliamp-hour removable battery - designed to last over a day -- and a microSD car slot for extra storage.

The G4 launches first in Korea on Wednesday and will be arriving in other markets near the end of May or early June.
