The LG G4 is a smartphone with a curved 5.5 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display, 3GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, and an optional leather back panel.

LG introduced the G4 in April, and now the company is launching the phone in select markets. It should be available worldwide by this summer.

The phone will hit Hong Kong first, followed by Turkey, Russia, Singapore, and then Europe,t he US, Southeast Asia, South and Central America, and Africa and the Middle East.

The phone is LG’s flagship model for 2015, and while technically the 6-core Snapdragon 808 processor in the phone doesn’t offer the same peak performance as as the 8-core Snapdragon 810 chip used in the LG G Flex 2 or HTC One M9, it’s likely that it doesn’t suffer from the same overheating problems that have afflicted phones with the Snapdragon 810 chip… which means that the G4 might offer better real-world performance in many situations.

Other features include a 16MP camera with an F.18 aperture lens, an 8MP front camera, a 3,000 mAh removable battery, a micorSD card slot, and Android 5.1 Lollipop with the LG UX 4.0 user interface.

  1. typo in the “F.18 aperture lens”
    on another note, I’m curious to see how much it costs in the US

  2. Leather is a great conductor of heat. /sarc Fortunately they apparently include a plastic back for those foolish enough to waste money on a leather smartphone back.

    Anyway, nice phone, and it would probably be my pick if I had to pick right now. It’s too bad though that manufacturers have to go to such lengths to appease the tech press.

    1. This would be my pick too if I was in the market for a new phone. I would just skip the leather back.
