The first LG G4 official teaser video is all about the new Quad HD display

The first LG G4 official teaser video is all about the new Quad HD display
In the last few weeks, LG made it clear that it's going to announce its next flagship smartphone, the G4, on April 28, while also revealing some of the handset's features.

Thus, we already know that, just like the G3, the LG G4 will feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD IPS display. However, LG mentioned that this is a new IPS panel, one that's brighter, while offering a wider color range. That's what LG is also telling us in its first G4 official teaser video, which was released a few hours ago.

The teaser video includes the G4 itself, though it's showing the device in a way that makes it impossible for us to properly study it. Anyway, from what we're seeing thus far, these leaked G4 images seem to be spot on.

While the new Quad HD display is an important feature of the G4, the handset will obviously have much more to offer, including a 16 MP "groundbreaking" rear camera, an 8 MP front-facing camera, and Android Lollipop with the new LG UX 4.0 on top. You should read our LG G4 rumor round-up to see what else the handset is expected to offer.

Check out the G4 teaser video below, and, if you want, also take a look at some of the previously leaked renders that allegedly show the upcoming LG flagship phone.

I'm gonna go against the grain and buy a Moto X 2nd edition with bamboo wood. No other phone feels better in my hand.

At least G4 comes with IPS True 1440P aka 2K unlike S6 that comes with pentiles 2 suppixels arrangment plus the white will looks way better than Super Amoled.

This is getting interesting. I'm glad I held off on the S6 and the HTC One M9. I will get the LG G4 or one the other two that I mentioned. I do not like waiting though.

The s6 has one of the worst battery life at the moment..plus is not removable...so i dont know why people are praising samsung for...LG has aleardy said that the g4 battery will lost longer than the g3.so what is the big deal about this...its sure beat s6 in battery,aswell as in the camera.

Did you even check phonearena's battery life test? How about GSMArena? The S6's battery life is considered good/excellent. The first 1 or 2 charge cycles are bad, but it improves significantly from there. You start off with 3 hours SoT initially and it improves to 5-6 hours SoT after the week ends.

The only thing that the G3 had on the s5 was looks, no other part of the phone was better, even the screen was not upto the s5 screen even with it crap QHD screen as it was junk, when looked at over the s5 and then the note 4 screen, you soon noted how bad it was when the note 4 came out

I owned both and still own the G3, it looks better, has much better use of space (screen to size ratio), the camera is much better in low light(S5 is appalling in low light), videos are much smoother due to OIS, loudspeaker is much better than the S5's in terms of clarity, bass and loudness, the earpiece is also stronger and easier to hear. That isn't only one thing it had on the S5 i wonder why.. Oh that's right because i actually tried them both instead of just babbling about.

We will have to wait and see if this can compete with the S6, but nobody can truly judge the LG G4 and how it compares to the S6, until it has been launched and we can see some hands on reviews and comparisons. I'm just hoping the G4 isn't too big. I think Samsung have nailed it in terms of size, being very close to the iPhone 6 but with a bigger screen and better all round specs. All I know for sure is I was the proud owner of the LG G2, which I loved apart from the creaking back cover. The G3 was a big improvement over the G2, and we can only assume that the G4 will once again be a big improvement over the G3, so on this basis I know I will love the G4. Will it be enough to stop me upgrading to the S6 Edge later this year....time will only tell !!

I am really looking forward to G4. My only problem with this phone thus far, is the leak of the Snappy 808.

Remember when Note 3 got positive remarks for leather stich look. Now it's frown upon. Think they should went similar G3 style with G4.

Just cannot get over how ugly the leather looks. The stitching just makes it look tacky. The black version is ok but not a patch on the Moto x 2nd gen. Hopefully the metal version will look great!.

The battery is going to make or break this phone, since there's no way anyone else is going to match Samsung in any of the other features of the S6. If the battery life of this phone and the Z4 is below the S6 (Which I am predicting), then Samsung will stand uncontested this year. Furthermore, if the battery life is worse than the S6, I expect LG, SONY, htc and other Android OEMs not named Samsung to sell a lot less phones this year than last year. Right now, the 1440p display with an IPS display isn't drawing any confidence on my end. Higher resolution scales incredibly well with power efficiency on AMOLEDs, but not on IPS. Combine a 1440p IPS display with the power-hungry A57 cores and you have yourself a recipe for a battery-life disaster. SONY won't be much better in my eyes as well.

z3 already smokes every high end flagship out there in battery life performance .. so the same thing with Z4 :) QHD IS JUST USELESS .. A SHARP FHD IS MORE THAN ENOUGH .. I WOULD TAKE A 2 DAYS OR 3 BATTERY LIFE THAN A 13HOURS OF USAGE WITH QHD

I say if you're not using a super amoled display then qhd is stupid because like applecultist said qhd doesn't affect amoled as much as it does an ips display.

I say anything more than FHD (1080) resolution on a sub 6" device is pointless. People keep talking about VR headsets, but I don't care about that. 3D performance on the native resolution will suffer, as well as OS performance due to higher load on the GPU. I don't care if the screen is AMOLED or IPS so long as the display is calibrated properly, the non-edge S6 has nailed that this year but other phones like the M8 HTC are what I consider good enough (though the new M9 regressed.) There's a market for everything out there though. If LG nailed other aspects of this phone it might sell well, but they need to be careful with pricing relative to the S6.

If all you want is a resolution high enough to not be able to distinguish pixels, then all you need is a 300+ ppi phone. HOWEVER, many people, mostly Apple fanatics, took Saint Jobs' words and spread lies about high resolution. Humans can very easily distinguish between 300 ppi and 500 ppi. They can also easily distinguish 500 ppi and 1000 ppi.

Yeah, that is right. I every time I see a phone, the first thing that matters to me are ppi. My friend has been damming my Note 4 since day 1 and he bought the HTC desire 816 dual. But anytime we want to compare photos on facebook, he realized that my note show good bright quality photos than his desire 816. Same as for everything. That is seeing and noticing the differences in ppi when it comes to displays.

"the first thing that matters to me are ppi." Sheep. BTW comparing a high end phablet with an older mid-range phablet with 4 times less the resolution isn't going to make your point valid.

I totally agree that qhd is usless on displays below 6.5in but I can see the difference between fhd and qhd so I like qhd even if it's not that much of a difference.

@ Arch_angel You're not alone, nor are you in the minority. The vast majority of people can tell the difference between 300 ppi and 500 ppi. They can even tell the difference between 500ppi and 1000 ppi. 300 ppi is only the point where you can't see pixelation on your screen from a reasonable distance. It doesn't tell you anything about picture quality, which higher resolution plays a role in. This is why IPS displays are a dead end, because when we get to 8k resolution, the power-drain will be insignificant on AMOLEDs while no IPS display smartphone will be able to use an 8k display for more than 15 minutes. There will be a VERY big difference in image quality between Samsung's flagships and the competition and everyone will be screaming for AMOLEDs much like how they're screaming for the S6 Edge now. Samsung also has a monopoly on AMOLED production. I see another huge revenue source for Samsung in the future.

Why the hell would you have an 8k screen on a cellphone...............

15. AppleCultist

Posts: 335; Member since: Feb 18, 2015

Because it significantly improves image quality. Do people still believe the 300 ppi nonsense from Saint Jobs? 300 ppi is only the point where you can't see pixelation a few feet from your face. It is not the point where humans can't tell the difference in image quality between higher resolution images.

VR and oled works better at hi res, if you had an s6 edge you see what I mean, it looks like a 3d image on the screen like its real

I agree about the Z3 eating everyones lunch when it comes to battery life. I disagree on screen & pixels. I used to think a phone having a 1080p screen was pointless until I bought a DROID DNA (the 1st 1080p near tablet size phone) & I was blown away. Though I will consider that maybe we are at the point of diminishing effect. I won't jump to conclusions like I have before about screens.
