The LG G4 rumor mill has been pretty active this week hinting at everything from the rumored device's specs to its display size. If reports are to be believed, LG expects the G4 to do really well, despite being pitted against the Samsung Galaxy S6. It's hoped that the G4 flagship device will turn things around for LG.
The company's last flagship device, the G3, was critically praised for its performance, although the premium device failed to drive through the consumers' mind.
With the high-end handset set to be unveiled on April 28, we want to take a look at everything we know so far about one of the most-hyped handsets of the year.
LG G4 To Feature New ‘Quantum' QHD Display
Apparently, the LG G4's screen will be 25% brighter than the LG G3's, as well as outputting a 20% wider color range. Earlier this month, LG unveiled the 5.5-inch QHD display panel that will go into the G4.
LG G4 has a vegetable-tanned 'leather' cover
The LG G4 will come with standard plastic backs as well as pricier leather backs. In terms of design, the G4 follows the G3's aesthetic: the device seems to appear more or les like its predecessor, with the power and volume button cluster beneath the camera on the back.
LG G4 Might Have a Snapdragon 808 processor
Reportedly, the LG G4 is likely to be powered by a Snapdragon 808 processor, instead of a Snapdragon 810 CPU. The leaked photo shows an Android smartphone running CPU-Z, an Android app that gathers system information, but so far we can't verify that this is the LG G4.
Snapdragon 810 vs. Snapdragon 808
The Snapdragon 810 has four high-end ARM Cortex-A57 CPU cores paired with four power-efficient ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores. The Snapdragon 808, on the other hand, comes with just two Cortex-A57 cores while retaining all four Cortex-A53 cores. Technically, the Snapdragon 808 is less powerful than the Snapdragon 810 processor.
LG G4 Would Come With 4GB of RAM
To me make the device really fast and responsive, LG is likely to use a healthy 4GB of RAM inside the G4. But again, we can't verify these claims, since the device is yet to go official.
