The wait for LG’s next flagship phone is over (almost), after event invites started making their way into email inboxes across the world, teasing the LG G4.
It actually hasn’t been too long since LG’s last high-end device came our way, that being the G Flex 2 which was the CES standout. But it seems that the company doesn’t want to rest on its laurels, so is going all out with yet another flagship device.
LG isn’t planning on letting people down with its latest flagship phone, so as always; we can count on there being a powerful collection of components under the G4’s hood.
A Snapdragon 810 chipset is probably the most likely addition, with competing handsets also offering the same sort of quality.
On top of this we’re likely to find an octa-core processor for speed and 3GB RAM designed for multitasking, whilst 32GB of on-board storage should be the smallest amount of storage available.
Talk of a 5.5” QHD display has also been backed by numerous sources – giving us more than enough space for pretty much any mobile task. This could be supported by the first LG stylus as well, which would slot neatly into the top of the chassis for safekeeping.
LG’s continued support of smartphone cameras is set to improve once more, with a 16 megapixel front lens set to be helped out by an 8 megapixel front facing snapper. This should mean that selfies and point and shoot snaps should be looking as good as ever from the G4.
One noticeable point about the invite was the leather design it features as a background. Whilst we might be reading a bit too much into this – it wouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to see LG use this as a look for the G4.
LG has long been linked with an improvement in build materials on its flagship phones, which until now have been built with a metallic style plastic, so this would fit the bill.
Other rumours also suggest that actual metal could be used in the design, much like that used on the iPhone 6, HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6. Whilst this might not be the most original move, it’s unlikely that anyone would moan, especially considering just how good metal devices look.
Whilst LG’s launch invite is scheduled for April 28th, the actual release of the G4 most likely won’t be for a few weeks after the event, keep an eye on the LG G4 here.
This means that a realistic release date for the G4 can be projected sometime in the middle of May – making it an ideal pre-summer pick up.
Pricing details, along with other information will no doubt be revealed at the launch event – so watch this space if you’re eager to grab yourself the latest LG flagship!
