Thats what they said about the G3. The G3 Is actually better than the S5 in every way.

It's not, the s5 as a better screen even at the lower res, see note 4 and s6 to see how to,do a QHD screen

I think LG G4 will go down to a smaller screen around 5.2" in order to stay in competition with the Galaxy S6 and HTC M9....and also bearing in mind that they have already said in the 2nd half 2015 they will come up with sth higher than G4, so i guess they will bring up another phone this year around 5.5 - 5.7" (with stylus pen propably) in order to compete in the phablet market... Whatever the case I am sure LG will come up with sth stylish and premium....Looking forward to see what's next by LG

I hope it is not going to be true. Curved, not bad, but still questionable (especially on the usefulness and ergonomics of it). But tad taller, wider, and thicker? That's quite stupid.

Yup definitely agree, LG have changed their logo. Also this render looks like a hybrid of the G2, G3 and G Flex 2. It has the Flex's curves, the G3's brushed pattern and flash/laser layout and the G2's buttons, with the oblong power button over the G3's rounded one. It still keeps the concave aesthetic however. Obviously the bulge in the camera is associated with the larger sensor. This is unlikely to be the finished product however. Looking forward to it.

I can't imagine they're adding size for the sake of it, there must be some added functionality. If the speakers and fingerprint sensor are on the back though, I'm totally stumped as to what that could be.

Don't make it bigger! Even if they add a 5,7˝ screen, I see no point. G3 was already borderline big, this one is crossing the line!

Ridiculous to still have the speaker at the back of the phone. Even Samsung learned to move it to an area where it will be better suited when the phone is lying flat on its back.

I'm sure LG has got a potential S6 killer on the making...even with the crappy snapdragon 810.

There is no way they can make a killer on ther hands, the only thing they can do is try and offer 3k or 4k and a bigger screen but the screen will be crap over the s6 screen and the 810 will over heat even more, they also got a problem with the 810 and the size of the phone to slim and it be a load of crap like the flex

All iwanted was an updated G3 with some cooler psecs and an extra feature or two. I dont want a curve :(

Let´s see the camera sensor (larger than S6 ???), for me I expect better low-light photos.

Hm, if they go 20mp it will just be like htc, crap, samsung went with the best cam going at 16mp as used on the note 4 and then added the new lens and then hit htc even harder and did the same to the front cam

Where will the 0.7 bezel be..with this size of body?ive gotten to like lg for thier small bezels allaround. This is not a new disign. This is the g flex disgn.. If they will throw this im sure they wont meet the 10 million goal.. More pixels will only mean more battery drain.

If LG has shown a dual edge display at CES. Why they dont they bring it to compete with samaung..im sure it will be a better option than a flex phone..if consumers or fans would want a curved phone they would already gone for the g flex..or leave room for the g flex to make sales..

Well... I think that's the Pro version(heard it will make a return) not really the G4.

I'm getting more disappointed as more info gets released and confirmed...please don't let it be curved, please don't let it have a larger body with a smaller screen...
