The G4 announcement will come after MWC, as LG wants to 'spend more time perfecting the phone'
When details about the LG G4 leaked a few days ago, we started hoping to see it unveiled around the time the MWC expo rolls in in a month and change. The G2 and G3 were both well-received, catapulting the company from 4% global market share in 2013, to more than a 6% forecast this year, and with an ever-increasing pie at that.  

A Snapdragon 810 will be reportedly driving the LG G4, a Quad HD display and 3 GB of RAM are a given, and a dump of Android 5.0 has brought forth evidence of 5312 × 2988 resolution pictures that will be available from the flagship. That leads to speculation that the device will feature a 16 MP wide rear camera, which would be a nice bump from the 13 MP shooter on the LG G3.

Well, it looks like we will have to wait the traditional nine months to a year after the previous flagship edition announcement, when it comes to the G4. An LG exec has confirmed for one Korean publication that it won't be seeing the light of day at MWC. "We rolled out the G3 in May last year so we do not plan to unveil the G4 at this year's Mobile World Congress and [will] spend more time perfecting the new phone." Well, at least the name got confirmed officially, as well as the announcement framed for some time in late spring. Also, by that time Qualcomm will have probably ironed out all the Snapdragon 810 kinks, so the G4 can ship with the trendy chipset en masse.
