LG All Set To Launch Its Flagship G4 In April But Not In MWC 2015: Rumor

By Prateek

It has been quite some time now, Samsung galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 has been swirling in the time frame of MWC 2015. But nothing so special has been said about LG's next flagship smartphone, the LG G4. Apparently, the LG G4 will see the light of day officially in April.

"LG Electronics decided not to release the G4 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) exhibition in Barcelona in March,"a Korean publication has been tipped. "It may release it in April." Another LG source explains the reasoning behind that timeframe: "Samsung usually releases its new flagship model in the first quarter of each year, and Apple in the second quarter. We need some in-between time to make a bigger splash."
