LG has introduced its latest flagship the G4 at dedicated events, held concurrently in New York and the London.
The whole event was mainly focused on three parts – display, design, and camera. The genuine leather at rear which we have already seen earlier in leaks is truly the key styling segment. The company is pleased to have used vegetable tanning, which is typically luxury leather industry and mere 10% of whole leather goods are processed this way.
Note that all the LG G4 are not garnished with the leather back, there is another variant which offers removable plastic back in metallic gray and ceramic white. However, each of the handset is slightly curved which results great handling and 20% more rigidity, according to company.
The LG G4 sports a 5.5-inch QHD screen, and is powered by a Snapdragon 808 chip with quad-core Cortex-A53 and dual-core Cortex-A57 processor. It packs 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage (expandable), and a 3.000 mAh user-replaceable battery. The G4 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with LG UX 4.0 out of the box.
In terms of camera, the LG G4 offers a 16 megapixel rear snapper with 1/2.6″ diagonal, and f1.8 lens which gives more light compared to f1.9 employed on Samsung Galaxy S6. The camera application comes with a ton of advanced attributes including live histogram, high ISO setting, and manual shutter speed etc. On the front side, you will find an 8 megapixel shooter which gives great selfies. Both front and back units are capable to shoot 2160p videos.
LG G4 has started in its home country – Korea and will soon be pushed to global markets. The pricing details are yet to be revealed.
