LG announced its new flagship G4 recently which is scheduled for June release. It features 5.5″ Quantum dot IPS screen starring QHD (1,440 x 2,560) resolution showing 538 pixels per inch and protected by Gorilla Glass 3. LG got a customized Snapdragon 808 chip-set for the G4, which claims to be faster than Exynos 7420. The new flagship enthralls gamers with Adreno 418 GPU and 3GB RAM.
Camera enthusiasts would love to see the 16MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization v2.0, f/1.8 aperture, 1/2.6 sensor size & laser based auto-focus technique. On plain English the rear camera features wider aperture, a new Color Spectrum Sensor for more accurate white balance and a new manual mode. You can use G4 to shoot 4k videos too. It also features a 8MP selfie camera.
On software front it runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with Optimus UX 4.0 layer.
On a downside, the new LG G4 look like its own LG G Flex2 and the immediate difference in minimal. Both features same screen size, but the new one has better resolution. G4 use the same curvature seen in G Flex2 but improved just the Camera. But the customized chipset is yet to prove its credentials.
Leather back covers the offers better grip on table are available as an additional option along with regular plastic covers.
