After months of rumors and many leaks, LG Has finally officially unveiled the LG G4. While the phone may appear to look the same as last year’s G3, there are a lot of improvements inside the device.
The device has a new 5.5 inch display with Quantum Dot Technology with a resolution of 2560 x 1440, which should give users a much higher-quality display. Powering that display is a hexacore Snapdragon 808 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and a replaceable 3,000 mAh battery.
The rear camera is 16 megapixels with an f/1.8 lens, which should make for excellent photography. The front-facing camera is a very impressing 8 megapixel shooter, which should be great for selfies and other activities.
Since the rear camera support up to 4K-quality video, you will need a lot of storage space with that option. The LG G4 will come with 32 GB out of the box with support for microSD expansion of up to 2 TB. There still aren’t any 2 TB microSD cards out there, so LG has very much future-proofed that part of the phone.
The LG G4 is running Android 5.1 under the hood, with LG’s own skin running on top of the device. This is the first phone to come with Android 5.1 out of the box, so hopefully it also includes a lot of bug fixes from the standard 5.0 release that happened last fall.
The outside of the phone is special as well. You can either get the LG G4 in a plastic back variant or you can choose to get one made out of real leather. It remains to be seen how well that holds up over time, but no doubt we’ll report on those issues if they arise.
As a free offer to customers who buy the LG G4, LG and Google will be teaming up to give users 100 GB of extra Google Drive space for 2 years.
There’s no official word on what the price of the LG G4 models are or when they will be available, but you can expect LG to be competitive with other flagship devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M9. Are you getting this device?
