Details About LG’s New Flagship Revealed
GSM Arena just broke the story on how LG accidentally leaked the LG G4 main features on their own website. Those pages of the website were already taken down but as with anything in the Internet, people were able to take screenshots.
Based on what we’ve seen, the successor to the highly successful LG G3 boasts of 2 “killer features”. The first is the material that they used for the back plate of the LG G4. Gone is the faux brushed metal finish that we’ve seen. With the G4 they’re going genuine leather.
This is definitely any interesting choice of material and it sets them apart from everyone else going with metal and glass. Also note that the website claims they’re actually using GENUINE LEATHER and not faux leather like what Samsung used with the Note series. The quality of that leather though is up for discussion once we get our hands on a unit.
Next is their new IPS 5.5-inch Quantum Display. Quad-HD madness combined with improved color production and energy efficiency.
The energy efficiency feature sounds intriguing since the biggest battery drainer of any phone has always been their display. There’s no mention though of how much efficient this is compared to your normal 5.5-inch screen. Will it result to 2 more hours of battery? Or will this just like give you 15 minutes more?
It might also be worth noting that the LG G4 will still have an interchangeable battery (3,000mAh) and microSD card slot. As you all know Samsung ditched those already with the S6 and S6 Edge.
As for the other specifications, the G4 will have a 16MP f/1.8 snapper and will most likely (not yet confirmed) be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, Adreno 418 GPU, and 3GB of RAM. These particular specs surfaced at the benchmark results which came out on the Internet the past few days as well. If we will believe the benchmark tests, the LG G4 is way behind the Sony Xperia Z4. HOWEVER you have to note that the displays are different. The Quantum display that the G4 is packing which requires more power.
At the end of the day it will boil down to actual user experience and we can’t wait to get our hands on both the Sony Xperia Z4 and the LG G4 so that we can see with our very own eyes how well both devices perform.
