LG G4 Is Likely To Come In April With 3K Display
While its major competitor Samsung Galaxy S6 will be officially exhibited at the event of MWC, LG’s elite mobile device G4 is still to remain behind the scenes as its launch date has not yet been disclosed.
Mobile World Congress (MWC), which hosts many launching ceremonies from the mobile industry, will take place on March 1st at Barcelona. However, the recent rumors suggest that LG G4 will not be present at the event.
Which, to some extent, seem validating the previous reports which said that LG may launch its smartphone in May. However, the new reports from The Korea Times suggest that the device may come in market in April, which will be a month or so before the previously anticipated dates.
The reports which revealed that G4 will be unveiled in May were, probably, built on LG’s course of action for G4’s predecessor G3. The G3 was launched last year in the very month of May, so it was assumed that the company might be following the same pattern this year as well.
As per the report, the delay in unveiling of the LG G4 can be the part of business tactics. Perhaps the company wants minimum competition at the time of launching. Therefore, the reason of not exhibiting G4 at WMC is possibly to avoid the head to head match with the Samsung’s S6 and the iPhone 6S’ official announcement.
“Samsung usually releases its new flagship model in the first quarter of each year, and Apple in the second quarter,” IT Pro quoted an LG source. “We need some in-between time to make a bigger splash.”
According to a leaked document found by MyLG, the new device will have the model number LG-VS999, and it will be the G4 for Verizon Wireless. As per the leaked specs, G4 will support the 3K display featuring a pixel resolution of 1620 x 2880.
Previous reports suggest that the device come packed with the Snapdragon 810 SoC and 4GB RAM, while having a 5.3-inch QHD display.
