Samsung and HTC have already announced their flagship offerings earlier this month as part of MWC, and it’s now LG’s turn. This Korean tech giant wanted to avoid launch conflicts with Samsung, HTC and Apple, and will launch their G4 flagship next month. The Head of Mobile at the company has already said that this handset will be “radically different” than the G3, and that LG will even announce the LG UX 4.0 before they actually announce the G4.
That being said, according to the newest reports from Korea, the LG G4 will be launched at the end of April, though we still don’t have the exact launch date unfortunately. The same sources also said that the phone will ship with a curved QuadHD (2560 x 1440) display which will be 5.X-inches big, which was to be expected actually. The recently leaked G4 renders actually fit this description, though it remains to be seen how legit they are. Some analysts are actually saying that the G4 will give the company an edge over its competitors, and will be a gamechanger for LG. The LG is expecting to sell 10 million G4 units, but according to the analysts, the company might sell over 15 million units this year. As a side note, LG has sold 7 million G3 smartphones since it launch in April last year.
Various rumors have tried to predict the specifications of the LG G4, and we’ll give it a shot based on the info we have thus far. The LG G4 is expected to sport a slightly curved 5.5-5.7-inch QuadHD (2560 x 1440) display along with 3 or 4GB of RAM and multiple storage variants (32GB+). The handset will most likely be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor and will ship with a 16 or 20.7-megapixel OIS camera. The device reportedly won’t offer metal build, but the company’s new G4 Note handset might. These are all rumors at this point, so take it all with a pinch of salt. The launch event for the handset is still approximately a month away, but stay tuned for any further information that might surface before then.
