Possible LG G4 variant LG-H818 appears again; flagship could launch with Android 5.1 installed
posted by Alan F. / Mar 07, 2015, 1:27 AM
On the last day of February, we showed you a User Agent profile that revealed the model number LG-H818. With a 1440 x 2560 resolution screen, the model is supposedly the LG G4 for the Asian market. The model number showed up again today on the html5test website. The phone on the benchmark site came with Android 5.1 on board, version LMY29F. That happens to be the same build spotted on Android One powered handsets running Android 5.1.
Android 5.1 is expected to offer better RAM management, a more stable system, protection against sudden app closures and improved battery life. The build should also repair some problems with the "Okay Google" function, issues with notifications, and problems with sound.
While the LG G4 missed MWC, which allowed rivals like the HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge to grab the early limelight, the most recent word is that the LG G4 will be unveiled next month. One Korean magazine said that it was tipped that LG skipped MWC just in case Samsung received all of the press. However, an LG executive had earlier explained that the LG G3 was unveiled in May last year leaving it in no rush to unwrap the phone this March. The executive added that this gives LG more time to perfect its new flagship. And if what we are seeing here is legit, the LG G4 will launch with Android 5.1 pre-installed.

LG should incorporate a 3500mAh battery and the OLED Display found in the Flex 2 in the G4. Also it would be interesting to see what SoC they add in it.. will it be their own Octa Core Chip with PowerVR 6 Series Rouge Graphics or the so called Overheating Snapdragon 810...

For me, I want - 5.5" QHD OLED display with Gorilla Glass 4 - 3300mAh (as 3500mAh is unlikely) - 16MP Camera + OIS - Fingerprint scanner built-in the power button on the back As for processor, I don't really care so much since 810 is also a great deal. But LG might use its own NUCLUN processor. If all of that turn out to be true, I'm going to get it for sure.

Rumor has it 5.1 is coming next week! Also it seems like 5.1 might actually be a bigger change than first thought There are APKs specifically for 5.1 (so far Messenger & Contacts) So new API level maybe?http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/g

Everyone will be Hoping that LG do not do the the Same path as Samsung & Sony and do Offer the Micro Sd Card Slot on the G4,but with Samsung & Sony doing this will it make consumers Switch to the iPhones,as thats what made people switch to Android phones because Apple never Offered the Memory Card Slot on there phones

After the disappointment of th galaxy s6 I hope to see an lg g4 with removable battery and sd card. Site Reviews like this one always praising "premium" desing over function are responsible in part for the way all the manufacturers are removing key features for Android power users.

FORGET removable battery at least.. Every1 is moving away with removable batteries since its easier and more robust to have unibody. As for sd cards, thank Google not the manufacturers, since Android in its essence started to discard sdcards from 4.0 onward.

I am sure that the LG G4 will be an amazing device. Lets hope they don't make the same mistake like SAMSUNG did that they made it without a removable battery and with no SD card slot. LETS HOOOOPEEEEE

Hopefully yes...but i think they will provide removable battery and sd card..since they know the g2 didnt sell well because of that. Thats why the made it in the g3,so they well know the selling points of the g3.perhaps the removable battery will not make it like in the g flex but the sd card will sure be there...even so the least will be a 3000 mAH battery..hope they use thier olde screen since it uses less power than lcd or quantum dot lcd

The Micro SD and removable battery feature is not an essential feature to be honest. It is a plus, but it is not always a dealbreaker IMO. The G2 does not have an expandable memory support or removable battery but it's still heck of a phone.
