Korean analyst: the LG G4 might not sell better than the G3
On April 28, in less than two weeks' time, LG will finally announce the G4, its next-generation flagship smartphone. The South Korean company already allowed us to see what the G4 looks like, while also revealing some of the handset's features. But there are still important questions to be answered, including when and for how much the new smartphone will be available.

Before all questions are answered, here's what a Korean analyst from Seoul-based IBK Investment & Securities has to say about the G4. According to The Korea Herald, the analyst believes that the new LG flagship is "an impressive product", and yet sales might not surpass those of the LG G3 (about 10 million units). That's because, the analyst says, following the release of Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, which are already wildly successful, "market conditions will not be favorable."

Another analyst thinks that the use of a Snapdragon 808 processor instead of a Snapdragon 810 inside the G4 could also be an uninspired move from LG. However, we must note that LG didn't confirm that the handset would be powered by a Snapdragon 808 processor.

What LG did confirm is that its new flagship smartphone will feature a 16 MP rear camera with a wide f/1.8 aperture, an 8 MP front-facing camera, Android Lollipop with a new UX, and a 5.5-inch Quad HD display. The G4 will have multiple variants, including some with leather back covers, and others with plastic backs.

An LG G4 Stylus might also be announced in the near future, but it's not clear if LG intends to do this on April 28. Whatever happens on that day, we'll be here to tell you all about it.
