LG G4 said to arrive in Q2 with a new design concept and better camera

G3, was announced during a dedicated event at the end of May last year. The LG exec continued that with the G4, "design will continue to differentiate in terms of strategy," leaving us wonder whether he means another innovative placement of the physical keys, or an outright change in housing materials, given that the S6 is widely rumored to be metal-clad, for instance.LG Mobile is apparently planning to make a big product announcement in Q2, which will likely be the G4, as its predecessor, the
In addition, the source mentions an improved camera with "strong visual experience" will be in store for the G4, again making us remember that 20 MP "advanced OIS" unit that LG flaunted recently. As for the rest of the specs, we can reasonably expect a Quad HD display again, perhaps of the same 5.5" diagonal as the G3, and a Snapdragon 810 processor. Pretty good, but that eventual new design is what will be keeping us at night from now on, as this might be the year when plastic could be gone for good from flagship smartphones for a change.

LG will always lose to Samsung in the camera department, said it and meant it

Cant say so. LG has been the first to use the OIS and Laser. They need only a good sensor to go along. Samsung is good but if LG uses a better sensor with some good optimisation, they may win the race.

Larger sensor requires larger lens and that contradicts the ever getting thinner logic that manufacturers employ today, even if they wanted to they only use off the shelf camera modules and therefore have to use what everybody else is using. And i'm assuming you meant 1/2.3" and not 2/3" as 2/3" is much bigger than a 1/2.3"

LG phones are usually "good" at everything, but not great in any specific area.

Well i love my g3.fast focus is the key to great picture..if the lg3 would hav used a 16mp camera it would have been even far better than the s5..in the s5 you have to take steady shot for it to beat the g3 slightly unnoticable..i want a phone which takes good pictures at any moment..and the g3 did that..even the g flex 2 takes better pictures than the note 4 and has only a 13 mp...0.7 correction angle on the g4 will be akiller camera plus lg oled display would be awsome

Larger and improved sensor for the camera with thier ois and thier laser focus. As someone else stated, oled screen would be great also, I've always liked how oled screens looked compared to traditional ips screens. I like lg's ui fairly clean and unobtrusive but still has some good custom features. Need to work on thier battery life also, that's my biggest gripe with the g3. I upgrade my phone yearly and this year will probably be one of the most difficult years when it comes to what to get next.

Indeed it is going to be a VERY difficult and interesting year to choose our next phone....with all these beasts coming ahead....except if some flagships make it very easy for us to choose from. And as I said before i will NOT rush into any of them until all flagships are released and reviewed....this is my tactc for this year
