Global rollout of LG G4 starts this week

Global rollout of LG G4 starts this week
While a couple of texts have given us dates when to expect the LG G4 to launch in the U.S. (June 2nd according to T-Mobile) and in Canada (June 19th according to WIND Mobile), LG has announced on Monday in Korea that the global rollout of its new flagship phone will start this week. First, keep in mind that there is a large time difference so while it is still Sunday evening in the U.S., it is the next day at LG's headquarters.

First up to greet the new flagship will be Hong Kong, followed by launches in Turkey, Russia and Singapore. From there, most of Europe will be on the LG G4 bandwagon along with North America, CIS, Southeast Asia, Middle East/Africa and South/Central America. According to LG, the manufacturer has already partnered up with 180 carriers and retailers to offer the device.

The LG G4 will come with leather backed versions in six colors. Or if you're an animal rights activist, there are three unique material covers. The phone does have a removable back so that you can swap a fresh battery for the spent cell. Revolutionary, we know. We also recently discovered that while LG hasn't promoted it because of the removable battery, the phone does have Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 available to those who purchase a compatible charger.

Other features include the f/1.8 aperture on the 16MP rear shooter, promising great shots under low-light conditions. Use a wave of the hand to snap a selfie with the 8MP front-facing camera. The 5.5-inch Vivid IPS Quantum Display brings you 20% better color reproduction, a 25% brighter picture and a 50% better contrast. The LG G4 is also the first phone to employ the Snapdragon 808 chipset which features X10 LTE to provide a better balance of power and battery savings. The 64-bit SoC comes with a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU.

Pricing for the device will be announced as the phone is set to be released in each individual market. Check out how LG selects the leather for the LG G4 by clicking on the video below.

On my country, Indonesia, it costs $654, it's 3000mAh version, with dual sim lte (which usually costs $15 more), with free 64gb class10 premium microSD (worth $40), leather plastic case (cost $38 and $15 each), vr plasticboard (worth $20, available later), quadbeat 3 headphone (worth $15), additional 2900mAh battery external charger (worth $35, can charge 100% in an hour), free 2years google drive 100gb, usb OTG cable (worth $3), line (chat app) doll (they sell phone with free really big doll, worth $5), new curved gorilla glass 4 (yeah, not 3, available later) replacement for a year including user damage, and $153 cashback for those who preorder this month. Don't forget calibrated screen profile of DCI standard, which is worth more than $6000 While galaxy s6 costs more than $770, single sim, no headset, no case, no free glass replacement, no microsoft cloud memory, no VR, no online service (music, book, movie). Is it fair to compare them side by side? :D it's cheaper than note4 in fact, with all those bonus btw, why phonearena didnot post this news? ;>

DCI calibrated display is a huge marketing gimmick. TVs are calibrated to that standard as the content is optimised to that. Android is supposed to work with sRGB. Samsung and LG have the crap adobe RGB( Samsung) and DCI( LG) flase mareting because their gamuts are close to those standards. But when rendering sRGB which they do, they are just inaccurate panels. There is no getting around it and I have no idea why no one talks about it. An android display should be calibrated to sRGB, a camera OLED viewfinder should be calibrated to adobe RGB and a TV should be calibrated to DCI. That's it. And calibration doesn't cost 6000$ LOL. I can calibrate a display using appropriate software and a colorimeter for far cheaper than that.

Link bait! Can I get some dates here? Otherwise it's just "pretty soon" and we already knew that.
