*Update: Here's a link to where you can watch the G4 Livestream: LG G4 Livestream
LG has already revealed most of the details of the G4, but we won’t know everything about it until it’s official later today. This is what we do know.
Moto started it with the Moto X, then Samsung jumped on the wagon with faux-leather backing on the Galaxy Note 3. LG continues with the release of its G4 flagship. LG published a post on how the leather backing is manufactured. For those of you who are not into cowhide, the G4 will come in three plastic versions, as well.
LG seems to be totally in ore of the G4 display. They have been hyping it since early this month. They have revealed, its improved QuadHD display with Advanced In-Cell Touch (AIT) technology, enables the display to sense touch even when it’s wet.
LG also teased that even though the display features a contrast ratio that’s 50 percent higher than its competitors, it doesn’t burn through battery as quickly as you think. Time will tell. LG calls this a "Quantum display." Perhaps it uses the same quantum lighting technology found in their latest top-of-the-line TVs?
The Korea Times reported a while ago that the G4 runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor instead of a Snapdragon 810, as the 810 has been under fire for overheating. The G4 will use the Snapdragon 808,” said the source. " Qualcomm stated they will be able to resolve overheating issues later this year."
Both the LG G Flex 2 and the HTC One M9 had to be throttled back to avoid overheating. The 808 might actually perform better in the long run, and perhaps the better choice.
Now for the camera. LG’s video shows what the G4, can do with its 16-megapixel rear-facing camera.
The G4 has a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with an f/1.8 aperture, as well as an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, which is perfect for selfies. Can't wait to check it out..
LG recently published a teaser video showing off all the details of its improved UX4.0 user interface. It features things like a quick camera shortcut, RingTone ID, and Quick Memo+, which may just be a loaded version of a note-taking app, Google Keep.
Looks like LG has really produced a winner. We will know for sure today. Who's getting in line for G4?
