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!

So did you post the same question about iPhone 5s when Apple released iPhone 6 ?

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.

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.

My bad,I knew it wrong that the increasing no's are for a better sensor.

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).

My taiwanese friend made a $1000 bet with me that note series will always be best, so we will see about that

I will give all of my money if it does come with these specs along with mali T880MP8, I think it will because huawei kirin 940 and 950 can, then why not samsung can.

27MP? What about low light? 16-20MP is enough, Improve the optics.

What the f#%k ur talking about.... G4 has one of the best low light camera in the market right now...

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.
