It's been a year since LG released its original G3 flagship phone, and, as such, fans have become increasingly hungry for details about its successor. While no release date has been confirmed as of now, industry sources suggest that tech fans will get their first glimpse of the so-called G4 as early as this April.
Today, an alleged image of the LG G4 has been leaked online via @OnLeaks along with dimensions. According to the tweet, the leaked render shows off a slightly curved design reminiscent of the LG G Flex 2. The curve on this isn't as extreme as the G Flex 2.
Interestingly, the upcoming phone is rumored to come with a removable back cover. LG's upcoming flagship phone is said to measure in at 148.9 x 76.5 x 9.9mm, which would make it a larger offering than the 146.3 x 74.6 x 8.9mm on the G3.
The LG G4 is set to get a smaller screen, which isn't surprising given the current trend for more sizeable phablets. A Quad HD resolution is promised, like the Samsung Galaxy S6. The forthcoming phone will be driven by a Snapdragon 810 processor. There will, however, be plentiful RAM in the form of 4GB, which should help things run nice and smoothly - if indeed this is correct.
While the camera will stay the same at 13-megapixels, a new sensor will perform better in low-light, which is good to hear. The front camera will also be a more impressive 5-megapixel affair, with a wide angle lens as is the trend these days to ensure selfie fans aren't disappointed.
LG intends to sell 10 million units of its next flagship smartphone LG G4 that would succeed its current G3.
"LG Electronics aims to achieve the 10 million sales target of the G4 smatphone, which will be unveiled next month. Specification of the G4 and changes we've made had been briefed to top outlet channels and European carriers during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) fair. Initial response was good enough," an LG official told Korean Times.
"LG knows this year will be very crucial whether to maintain a stable lead as the world's third-biggest smartphone producer in annual sales by widening gaps with our Chinese rivals, such as Xiaomi. LG will actively respond," the LG official said
