The flagship LG G4 will begin taking its first fledgling steps outside of South Korea this week.
Decked in leather and rolling out with the latest Android software (5.1 Lollipop), the stylish LG G4 smartphone will cross over to China – more specifically Hong Kong, before continuing its journey west through Singapore, Russia and then Turkey in the following weeks.
LG’s answer is simple yet vague – ‘Eventually’.
A somewhat dismissive response after such a big effort was made in promoting and launching the LG G4 on April 28th in six worldwide capitals including London, Paris and New York.
Similarly vague is any word on the pricing and availability, but recent price rumours suggest around £520 when the 32GB leather cased handset finally shows up here – or a few quid shy of £500 for the non-leather metallic look.
For the high-end cost you’d expected some fairly decent specs and you’ll get them with a generous 5.5-inch QuadHD touchscreen display which with the handset’s narrow bezel allows it to fill much of the phone’s front surface, a quad-core 64-bit Snapdragon 808 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, expandable with removable micro-SDCX that offers up to an incredible 2TB. The battery is also removable and offers a healthy 3,000mAh charge as standard.
The LG G4 will be equipped with 16-megapixel rear camera which uses an f/1.8 aperture, infrared colour spectrum analyser and laser autofocus and if that’s not enough for you, your selfies will be stunning with the front-facing camera which boasts 8-megapixels.
We apologise for tantalising with these lavish features with no release date to share for the anticipated LG G4 but we will endeavour to find out more as the week goes on.
