It appears as if LG has just confirmed the date that the LG G4 will be available. LG will be announcing the new flagship on April 28th in a 6-city event. We will be live at their New York City event next Tuesday, to see what all the excitement is truly about. LG’s website confirms that the G4 will be available starting May 31st. Now that could be just for South Korea – as we’ve seen before with both LG and Samsung. But it could also be the international release date, which means those in the US will still have to wait a bit longer. However, they could do a rollout like Samsung did with the Galaxy S6. Where they launched it in over 30 countries on the same day, including launching on all four major US carriers on the same day.
The site does confirm that they will be offering free screen replacement option should you break it within the first year. However, there’s no word on whether that is just for South Korea or will span the entire world. It sounds really similar to what HTC is doing, that’s US only. Which makes us feel that LG will be doing this as a South Korea thing only, unfortunately. LG also has a free 64GB microSD card deal for the LG G4. Which pretty much confirms that the device will have a microSD card slot, again. Something that Samsung decided to get rid of on the Galaxy S6 this time around.
LG has been touting their camera on the G4 through numerous teases lately. We’re looking at a 16MP camera on the back with f/1.8. Also a 8MP front-facing camera. It also appears we’re getting a Snapdragon 808 inside this flagship instead of the Snapdragon 810. And if you’ve been following Android news at all this year, you’d know why. The Snapdragon 810 gets pretty hot, and it’s especially noticeable on the LG G Flex 2, which gets really slow. So it’s probably a good idea for LG to use the Snapdragon 808 this time around. Instead of crippling two of their flagships this year.
