LG already let us know that their next flagship, the G4 wouldn't be making an appearance at Mobile World Congress, and now it seems we have a more concrete "mid-April" reveal date. Here's a quote with more of the details,
"LG Electronics decided not to release the G4 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) exhibition in Barcelona in March," a source said. "It may release it in April." The G3 was released on May 27 of last year.
Another source said that from a marketing point of view the MWC was not the right place to show off the G4 because Samsung will unveil its Galaxy S6 there. He said LG will wait until it is fully ready.
"Samsung usually releases its new flagship model in the first quarter of each year, and Apple in the second quarter," he said. "We need some in-between time to make a bigger splash."
There has been speculation that LG's delay was because of over-heating issues with the Snapdragon 810 and they were waiting for an updated version of the chip from Qualcomm; however, Qualcomm responded to these rumors indicating that presumption was false as they were on track for a normal launch of their chipset.
