LG G4 backed by Snapdragon 810 will debut in April


LG G4 concept

Things surrounding the upcoming LG G4 flagship have been relatively quiet, aside from a faint rumor here and there. They have definitely done a better job than HTC and Samsung have by keeping their next flagships under wraps. The latest faint rumors suggests that the LG G4 will debut in April and not at Mobile World Congress (MWC).

A source of the Korea Times suggests that “LG Electronics decided not to release the G4 at Mobile World Congress (MWC) exhibition in Barcelona in March. It may release in April.” This is most definitely because LG wants to avoid a clash with Samsung, the other smartphone titan. The source fails to mention HTC, so it seems as if their only concern is their Korean neighbors, Samsung.

The source continued to say that LG is looking to shoot a gap between Samsung’s release in Q1 of 2015 and Apple’s expected iPhone 6s release in Q4 of 2015. The smartphone road-map seems quite open in Q2, so it is definitely LG’s for the taking.

The LG G4 is expected to be a huge upgrade from its predecessor, the LG G3. It is expected to feature the same 5.5 inch QHD display, but it will now boast at least 3 GB of RAM (4 GB has been rumored), a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, and rear-facing camera of 16+ megapixels. The LG G4 will be one of Qualcomm’s top devices this year, as it will go head to head with Samsung’s Exynos 7420, so expect the G4 to go all out.
