Last year's LG G3 was a popular option for consumers offering a solid set of specs coupled with a powerful camera. This morning, LG held a press conference for the release of its successor, the LG G4. The new device offers a revised design with a 5.5″ QHD quantum LCD and a chassis that harnesses a slight curve though less pronounced than their G Flex 2.
There is a choice of a ceramic or leather back material and the device sports an upgraded 16MP rear sensor with a f/1.8 aperture and 2nd generation O.I.S. technology. There is now manual photo modes, RAW shooting, and an improved color spectrum for the rear camera. The 8MP front camera has also been revamped with new gesture-based controls to allow for burst selfies.
Here's the rest of the specs within the LG G4:
- 6-Core Snapdragon 808 Processor
- Removable 3000mAh battery pack
- 32GB of integrated storage with optional microSD slot
- Running Android 5.0 (Lollipop)
- 100GB of free Google Drive storage for two years with purchase
- Mirrorlink support for Volkswagen
While the official release date is not yet announced, the device will be available on T-Mobile, US Cellular, Verizon, and AT&T sometime this Spring. No pricing details have been shared publically, but we expect the device to be sold for $200 on-contract or the $600-$700 range without further commitment.
