Fans looking forward to the LG G4 being unveiled at the MWC 2015 have to face some disappointment as the company announced that they are not yet ready to announce their upcoming device. This is not a surprise, as the company unveiled LG G Flex 2 at the CES and also showed off a prototype of their dual-sided curved display the Active Bending Display, so rolling out another flagship so soon seems highly improbable. LG as per previous year’s patterns announces the G series smartphone in the second quarter in April or May, so we probably will be looking at LG G4 then. One of the LG executive confirmed this aspect when talking to a South Korean publication, he stated:
We rolled out the G3 in May last year so we do not plan to unveil the G4 at this year’s Mobile World Congress and [plan to] spend more time perfecting the new phone.
LG has been doing well in the smartphone sector and the company has also managed to increase its global share by 4% IN 2013 to 6% in 2014. So it is normal for a company to complete its testing and get all the knicks out before they show the world their next flagship. Apart from that maybe the company plans to announce both the LG G4 and LG Active Bending (hope they change the name) together.
To date the reported specs of LG G4 point to it being powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, they have used the same in LG G Flex 2 and the company does not seem worried about the over–heating issue like Samsung and sticking to it. A 3 GB RAM will be equipped in the smartphone along with a 16 megapixel main camera. The LG G4 will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop. We will be hearing more about developments related to LG G4 in the next coming weeks, it will be interesting to see what other features will this device sport.
