The LG G4 camera to come with a six-layer lens that is double the G3 size

The LG G4 camera to come with a six-layer lens that is double the G3 size
If you have been wondering how exactly will the G4 camera be able to collect 80% more light than the G3 unit, the answer is a much bigger lens module, reports Korean media today. Done entirely in-house, the new LG Innotek 16 MP camera piece that will make a cameo in the G4 for the first time, has received a lens set with wide f/1.8 aperture that is double the size of the G3 glass. It also consists of not four or five, but a six-element lens, for better light sensing, resulting in a "high-precision, large-diameter module structure."

To top it all off, LG Innotek introduced an ultrathin 0.1mm glass blue filter, preventing parasitic infrared emission from penetrating the lens, and skewing the color presentation. Of course, the module will still use the standard 1.12 micron pixel size, so we wouldn't hold our breath for some unbelievable low-light performance, akin to a DSLR, but still, the LG G4 should have a pretty great, optically-stabilized camera - for a smartphone, that is.

True that. While other OEMs are assembling their phones, LG and Samsung will be spending big in R&D to come up with new technologies that their future flagships, they focus on getting things done, not applying for a patent and waiting for others to figure it out and then sue the crap out of them.

Its true, only LG and samsung are pushing the limits in technology and R&D unlike money hungry fruit picture which is not even complete, half eatten. Any other OEMs which are trying new things are all from china

Were you referring to Apple ? Me too. I don't really see a point why Apple resist to give up their monopoly in mobile world. I also hope Apple can become a real openmind and stop their lawsuit against others.

Exactly. but i;m afraid of Chinese OEMs aggression in recent years. I mean they are a serious treat to Samsung and others. More than that, these Chinese vendors innovate nothing in technology. By the way, is it really you? You look cute. I like Kpop and Korean drama so much.

Yes, and I like Cambodia too. I wish to visit Ankor Wot someday because some of my friends have been there a few times. I want to see all ancient temples there which are very similar to Thailand.

It's pronounced " Angkor Wat ", dear. I'm glad that you acknowledge us. Angkor Wat is situated in Siem Reap province. There are a lot of genius things to enjoy there, not just ancient temples like Khmer traditional food, Khmer boxing, Khmer traditional music and many other fantastic things which you won't be forgotten when you've visited once. ^^

Oh, my apology. Yes, my friends also mentioned about Cambodian foods. Your foods are kind of spicy right? and seafood there are way more expensive, they added. I heard that Cambodian people are friendly, modest and decent. I promise to visit it at least one time. :)

Never mind, dear. Yes, you should do that. Some of our foods are a bit spicy, but not as much as Thailand's. Of course, seafood is a bit expensive though it's acceptable. We welcome all foreigners around the world. If you come by tomorrow, you will have a great day in Angkor Sangkran (Khmer New Year Event) in Siem Reap province. You should discover various types of Khmer cultural exhibition there, it's very delightful. I also have a dream of visiting South Korea, France and USA. Could you recommend me something in Seoul?

It's just my dream, really. I have always sit under my mom basement to enjoy a virtual trip around the world, youtube, google earth, street view are my lovely friends to deal with. LMAO

Angkor Sangkran... Ah that's the same as Thailand's Sangkran Festival, right? People have a war of wet there! LoL You two countries are pretty identical in my opinion. Traveling is a kind of hobby for me, and I'm really excited to meet a travel lover like you on this site. Well, when you come to Seoul, I guarantee you would feel great as much as you come to the West and other countries. Here are some important tips for you to spend your time in Seoul: I - Historical places: 1/ Han river: This is one of the longest rivers in Korea. It's also a symbol of Korean history. You can enjoy sports and exercises there for the most part. 2/ Gyeongbukgung Palace: Built in 14th century. This palace is well-known for its earthenware clay pots from the ancient time. Cool right? 3/ Jogyesa Buddhist Temple: To see a giant trees from ancient time which aged more than 500 years old. 4/ Seoul Children Park: A green park, not just for kids, but for everyone. Interestingly, you can see polar bears :D 5/ Namsan Hiking: Great place for hiking in middle of Seoul. 6/ War Memorial Monument: Want to know about Korean military weapons? You will see real tanks, fighter jets, and others equipment. :D II - Shopping places: 1/ Myeongdong: It's one of the most crowd for shoppers in Seoul. You can buy street food as well. 2/ Namdaemun: One of oldest market in Seoul. You can find everything ranging from the cheapest to the most expensive goods. I like it. 3/ Insadong: The best place to purchase pure Korean souvenirs, but with a bit expensive price. 4/ Dongdaemun: A wide range of shopping area in Seoul. I often go there. 5/ Lottemart: If you need grocery, go there. III - Eating: 1/ Gwangjang Market: The best place for restaurants, especially street foods. I feel hungry now ! :D 2/ BBQ: get your personal grill and meat for your own serve. 3/ Noryangjin fish market: The best place where you can find fresh seafood. 4/ Garak market: The biggest stock of wholesale food in Seoul. There are tons of things to do in Seoul, but I just can't remember them all. I'm pretty sure that my recommendation list above would guide you to a real heaven in Korea. :)

I never met someone friendly like you on the internet. Although I don't know when I will visit S Korea, when I read your list, it sounds like I almost arrive there.^^ Thanks for your fantastic recommendation.

You're welcome. I hope you will come here someday. Nevertheless, you could save my list in the first place until then you will need it. There is a lot of places to visit too besides Seoul like Jeju island, Gyeongsang, Jeolla, Incheon, Busan.... These are really worth to give a try.

I have done it. Sounds like Korea has plenty of resorts to discover. I can't wait for that time to come. By the way, do you hang out here often? If you need more info about Cambodia, we can exchange our chat here. LMAO

SuperNova, you really like to travel that much? How many countries have you been? When I was a child, I always wanted to fly around the world. I kept asking my dad to do that. As of now, I haven't visited outside yet. If I were a wealthy guy like Bill Gates, I will surely complete my dream...

Well, you're right. I actually love traveling. I have been to 2 countries honestly. My first experience is in Shanghai, China. I followed my dad on his business trip. The 2nd country is in Thailand when I and my classmate were on study tour in Ayutthaya and Bangkok for historical research purpose, and of course for fun too.
