Since this particular news is about the LG G4 model, it seems logical to give you an idea about LG’s flagship smartphone, in case you missed it.
The LG G4 is supposedly a major competitor of the Samsung Galaxy S6, sold with a beautiful 5.5-inch QHD Display with density 534PPI (2560×1440 pixels). It is powered by the Snapdragon 808 hexa-core SoC paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB expandable internal memory. A decent 16-megapixel main camera and an 8-megapixel selfie unit ensure the shooting of some epic photos and videos. Originally, the LG G4 was sold with the 5.1 Lollipop, which will get the Marshmallow update next week, as discussed before. This nifty flagship phone is backed by a 3,000mAh battery that is luckily removable.
Overall, we are pleased with LG’s quick release of the Marshmallow 6.0 update for the G4, and will inform you of further details once the official release comes out.
