LG G4 said to arrive in Q2 with a new design concept and better camera
Hot on the heels of an LG exec saying that they won't be releasing the flagship G4 at MWC because they want to "spend more time perfecting the new phone," now comes another nugget of info about the upcoming flagship, straight from LG's conference call with investors during the quarterly earnings report.
LG Mobile is apparently planning to make a big product announcement in Q2, which will likely be the G4, as its predecessor, the G3, was announced during a dedicated event at the end of May last year. The LG exec continued that with the G4, "design will continue to differentiate in terms of strategy," leaving us wonder whether he means another innovative placement of the physical keys, or an outright change in housing materials, given that the S6 is widely rumored to be metal-clad, for instance.
In addition, the source mentions an improved camera with "strong visual experience" will be in store for the G4, again making us remember that 20 MP "advanced OIS" unit that LG flaunted recently. As for the rest of the specs, we can reasonably expect a Quad HD display again, perhaps of the same 5.5" diagonal as the G3, and a Snapdragon 810 processor. Pretty good, but that eventual new design is what will be keeping us at night from now on, as this might be the year when plastic could be gone for good from flagship smartphones for a change.
