LG G4 Pro specs surface; device to carry Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB of RAM and a 27MP camera
We have heard for a while that LG has a higher spec'd handset than the LG G4 in mind to roll out in the second half of the year. The latest rumor is that this phone will be known as the LG G4 Pro and will feature a metal build. The device is expected to be unveiled in October and tops the LG G4 in just about every way.

According to a post found on Chinese social media site Weibo, the LG G4 Pro will feature a 5.8-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Driving the handset is the Snapdragon 820 SoC. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB/64GB of internal storage. A 27MP camera adorns the back of the phablet and an 8MP snapper can be found in front, ready to snap selfies. An all-metal body is confirmed.

So the big question that you have to ask yourself is whether you want to settle for the LG G4 now, or hold out until October for a more spectacularly spec'd LG G4 Pro. You do have to keep in mind that these specs are not official and you should take this story with a grain of salt. Still, if the LG G4 doesn't make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, it wouldn't hurt for you to wait to see if the LG G4 Pro does become reality.

Thanks for the tip!

The G4 was pointless before release. LG just want to creat attention with the rumours about the all might G4 Pro that is coming. I make a decision to buy a phone after it has been released and I have watched the reviews about 5 to 10 times.

Note series is always difficult to beat... LG tried many times in the past with no success... Better luck this time for LG. I hope they will come with something spectacular...
If Note 5 will come with A72 cores, IMX230, 4gig RAM, Type C connector with OTG function and removable battery then I will not wait for any device at all bcoz Note series is always the ultimate

I don't think Note 5 is going to come with ARM cores,Samsung is using their own own custom cores named Mongoose in Exynos 7422.
Galaxy s6 already uses a IMX240 so they are going to use an upgraded version not a downgraded one.

28. Ashoaib (Posts: 3229; Member since: 15 Nov 2013)


What?

For your information, IMX230 is the latest sensor with "192 points image plane phase detection auto focus" for better focus of moving objects and providing blurr free photos. IMX240 is an older model.(I dont know what advantage IMX240 has over IMX230)

Sensor size of IMX240 is 1/2.6
Whereas, the sensor size of IMX230 is 1/2.4

As we have seen in Lumias, bigger sensor does provide better quality and depth in photos.

Do you know the difference or just commented by looking at the numbers? Like 240 > 230?

IMX230 is a 21-megapixel 1/2.4" sensor with 1.12 micron pixels, what's most notable about it is its 192-point auto-focus system (versus 172-point AF on earlier sensors e.g. IMX240) with on-board image plane phase detection pixels that makes acquiring focus extremely quick and accurate, and allows tracking focus of moving objects. While preceding sensors drop the effective resolution in HDR capture, the Sony IMX230 also manages to keep all the detail of its 21-megapixel sensor intact for HDR shots.

The Sony Exmor RS IMX230 is also a stacked chip, with a new signal processor, a layer of back-illuminated pixels, and it is this type of construction that allows Sony to keep the vertical size of such large sensors so tiny, while others struggle with bulkier sensors of smaller size and featuring less magepixels.

Mongoose in Exynos 7422? Forget about it, they'll be lucky to use them in 7430 in the S7. A72s in the 7422 are also pretty unlikely. 7422 appears to be 7420 in more compact form (combining CPU, GPU, RAM, storage and modem in one chip).

There is a lot of noise in the image in the MKBHD review of the G4. Here I didn't mean the G4. I am speaking about the G4 Pro, As the Megapixel count increases the low light performance decreases. I don't care for megapixels as long as it is higher than 8.3 MP but I do care about low light photos. Smartphones could take awesome pics in well-lit situations but whats the problem in improving lowlight? Thats the f#%K I was talking about.

posted on 18 Jun 2015, 04:45

26. singhkaran9830 (unregistered)


Yeah,thats what I also think they should increase the sensor size rather than increasing the MP count that would make it an excellent performer in low light+better quality of the images.

Bingo! If the rumor turns out to be true then it's a fantastic move by LG! This along with the Note 5 will undoubtedly dominate the phablets market in the 2nd half of 2015. Come on LG, I have faith in you, just keep believing in yourself, you can jump to number 3 by the end of the year. Fighting !!!

Care to explain how the G4 is the worst?
1/ G4 has one of the best camera quality of 2015
2/ The runner-up best screen after the S6
3/ One of the few smartphones that don't experienced overheating problem.
4/ One of the best looking smartphone with customizable leather.

Even Phonearena rated it 9.0 which is one of the highest scores till now. But why do I need to explain that to you, since you're one of the biggest haters of Samsung and LG here? Nevertheless, stop making fool of yourself; and to tell you the truth, you need some brain-boosting foods to improve your #fishbrain, and never drop such a stupid comment.

Best screen after the S6? Are you kidding me? G4's display is mediocre for a flagship, not only 6 but also Note 4, iPhones or even Huawei P8 have better displays. G4 has many pixels but calibration is poor, it's way too cool (while is almost blue), colors are off. Leather wears off quickly,design is a matter of taste. It's also pretty big. It does overheat:
http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/06/09/62b191940da0771f512873aea1d8e2b7.jpg
Battery life is mediocre for such big battery.

Dear PA. This has nothing to do with the article but, what's with the section "you may like section" it has nothing to do with any article and Im quite displeased with it.

I know many will probably comment on this, and is my way of reaching out to PA and simply just wanted to tell you guys.

Nice phone if true, lets hope they can fix the touchscreen issues, horrible audio recording, increase the bitrate on the video recorded and improve the battery life.

Also be nice if they included an accurate display mode, Samsung can do it using OLED, so they should do the same.

Packing up heavy specs on a 5.8" display, they're trying to make 5" obsolete just like what they're doing with 4" display and bringing back the baggy pants of 1990s. If the trend continues, I'll just settle with chinese brands with monster specs and smaller displays in upcoming years.

Looks like LG is saving it's flagship G4 Name from the SD810 fiasco. The SD808 in the LG4 is a great processor but it cannot compete with the Exynos in the S6 and as we all know LG and Samsung are fierce competitors. The G4 has all the hardware of a flagship device with the exception of the SoC. LG, IMHO, was not happy with Qualcomm and it's SD810 and had to make a rush decision to outfit their flagship with a lessor SoC then their Flex device which exhibits overheating and had to be throtled down. Hence the LG4 Pro with the SD820 to make up for the whole fiasco. The G4 pro is what the LG4 should have been.
