According to Korea Times, LG is planning a "heavy promotional campaign" in Europe, Korea, and the United States with the aim of selling at least 10 million LG G4 units globally. According to the report, "specifications of the G4 and changes we've made had been briefed to top outlet channels and European carriers during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) fair" to an enthusiastic response. This is a moderately higher sales target than what the LG G3 managed to achieve in terms of sales - which is between 6 and 7 million units since its May 2014 launch.
- Display 5.5" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, Quad-core, 2500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3000 mAh(21h 3G talk time)
G2 was awesome. I hope they continue on the excellent device the G2 was and forget the horrible G3 and flex 2.

Yep the G4 has to be an absolute beast in all aspects to compete with 2015. They totally dropped the flagship ball last year. No one cared about the G Pro 2, the G3's display ruined the user experience and G Flex 2 damaged Qualcomm's reputation.

I am dissapointed with M9 and S6. I hope that G4 or Z4 won't dissapoint me too. All what LG need to change is screen, battery life and performance improvment. All I want is oled screen(can be from flex 2). Also metal build, waterproof, front stereo speakers and fingerprint scanner(but on the front under screen) would be nice.

The very first Galaxy, Samsung's least successful, alone sold over 10 million copies WW. They'll NEVER beat the S6 in our alternate universe...

Looking at LG's pattern, and their CEO's admiration for the S6, I'm guessing that the new LG G4 is going that route. Look for possibly UFS 2.0 on the G4 which means possibly goodbye Micro SD slot, and perhaps their homegrown SOC.

I am a user of LG G2, which offers me the best user experience ever. But G3 is a little disappointing. It doesn't leave me any special impression to me. With respect to G4, if LG doesn't solve their problem of extremely blurry video talk, no LG phone anymore, please.

I never own a G2 but did have an S3 and a Z10. Stoped using Samsung since I started noticing lag and stopped with BlackBerry since I never saw hope with a nice predecessor to their Z series and went the G3 was year and O my best phone I have ever had. But this year with the S6. And S6 edge Sammy caught my attention now it's. All up to LG to win me back with the G4 but I'm ready for a new phone not because I don't like the G3 anymore but I always like to have the best and since its as easy as to report my phone lost and pay only 40% of the s6a value I'm going to do that asap but if the s6 comes to my carrier before G4 is announced I don't think I'll be able to wait for the G4 since my carrier always take around 3 months to have the new phones up
