LG G4, the Korean tech company’s next-generation flagship, is now officially launched at press conferences in London and New York.
The G4 sports a curved 5.5-inch Quad-HD resolution IPS Quantum display screen, 3GB of DDR3 RAM and expandable 32GB of internal storage. In an interesting move, LG dropped the Snapdragon 810 due to alleged overheating issues and opted to use the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor with X10 LTE which the company touts has a really close integration into the device.
LG explains that the slim arc design, also seen on its G Flex announced last January, is used on the G4 to increase its durability by as much as 20 percent.
On the back of the camera is the 16-megapixel shooter with laser autofocus, three-axis OIS and color spectrum sensors and f/1.8 aperture capable of capturing real-life photos in manual mode and 4K resolution video. The next generation-device is also the first to sport the company’s newest LG UX 4.0 on top of Android 5.1 Lollipop.
