LG G4 leaks: Snapdragon 810 under the hood, 16MP wide camera on back
LG has struck paydirt with its flagship smartphones. The LG G2 and LG G3 have both been well received and the latter was included in our list of the three best smartphones for last year. But that was 2014. The question is, what will LG be bringing to the table with the LG G4 for 2015? According to a story out of Greece, LG's flagship Android phone will be carrying some big guns.

According to a source, the Snapdragon 810 will be driving the LG G4. As we recently noted, overheating issues with the chip are leading smartphone manufacturers to consider other options. Samsung is reportedly going to stuff up to 90% of its initial production of the Samsung Galaxy S6 with its own Exynos chipset. LG does have its NUCLUN octa-core processor, but it apparently is not up to snuff. As a result, Qualcomm's chip is still expected inside the LG G4.

Besides carrying 3GB of RAM, a dump of Android 5.0 has brought forth evidence of  5312 × 2988 resolution pictures that will be available from the LG G4. That leads to speculation that the device will feature a 16MP wide rear camera, which would be a nice bump from the 13MP rear camera on the LG G3.

We could see the LG G4 unwrapped in March at MWC in Barcelona.

Thanks for the tip!
