The LG G4 has been in the news for quite a while now, the most recent purported leak about it being from mere hours ago – and surfacing the image you can see to the left, which might show it.
All this said, you may be wondering when to expect it to actually launch. It turns out that you may not have a lot of waiting to do from this point on. That is, if the latest rumor on the matter is in fact true.
According to “industry sources” in LG’s native South Korea, the G4 is set to become available at the end of April. This means its official unveiling will take place in the next few weeks.
Last year, the G3 was announced in May and released in June, so this means the G4 will be up for grabs around ten months after LG’s previous top of the line offering. The company is clearly feeling the pressure from Samsung, which is rolling out its Galaxy S6 and S6 edge in mid-April, and probably wants to respond as soon as it can.
As for specs, we’re apparently going to see a screen size “in the 5-inch range like its predecessor, the G3”. This will have QHD (2,560×1,440) resolution, and will sport a “curved touch”. This may have been revealed by the aforementioned leaked images, and has been rumored before.
Analysts expect LG to sell 15 million G4s in one year, with 9.2 million of those sales happening in 2015. It should do better than the G3 in this regard.
