LG is all set to unveil its next flagship. There is little that we do not know about the device, with all the pre-released teasers from the company and the massive leaks that have surfaced so far. Here’s a lowdown on what all you can expect before the company finally lifts the curtain off the LG G4 today.
With all the leaks and teasers that have surfaced online so far, we know that the G4 will come in leather back variants in different color options. The leather back color variants include yellow, maroon, brown, blue, cement grey and black. It will also come in plastic back variants of grey, white and gold.
It is expected to sport a curved body that flaunts a 5.5-inch QHD display with 2560×1440 pixel resolution. Leaks reveal that the LG G4 will be powered by a Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor paired with Adreno 418 GPU and 3GB of RAM. It is also expected to feature 32GB internal storage expandable via a microSD slot.
The flagship smatphone should sport a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 8-megapixel front snapper. Teasers indicate that the camera will sport a f/1.8 aperture. The f/1.8 aperture will enhance LG G4′s low light imaging capabilities. Additionally, it is rumored to pack a 3,000mAh battery and run on the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop.
LG also unveiled UX 4.0 interface that will be a part of the LG G4. The new UI is pegged to be more ‘human centric’ and comes with features like Smart Alert, Smart Board, and camera-centric apps like Quick Shot and Expert Camera mode among others. Size wise, it is rumored to be just 8.9mm thick, with physical measures at 149.1 x 75.3 x 8.9mm. Connectivity wise, it is said to have LTE support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
GSMArena is reporting that the 32GB version of the G4 will cost somewhere between €679 and €689 (approximately Rs 47,000). The report, however, notes that the prices are only for the base model which doesn’t feature a leather back. Other models in the category will be priced somewhere in the range of €729 to €739 (approximately Rs 51,000).
While the LG G4 will be the showstopper, the South Korean company is also expected to launch a phablet variant of the flagship. The LG G4 Note was recently spotted online, and it seems to have taken inspiration from Samsung’s Galaxy Note series.
It is not sure when the LG G4 is coming to India yet, however the company has actively begun promotions in the country and has even introduced a contest for select fans to try out the smartphone before it is launched. LG has launched a dedicated website called trylgg4.in for this purpose.
