What we should expect spec-wise with tomorrow’s G4 unveiling from LG


With LG geared to announce the G3 successor tomorrow, there has been a wide-variety of leaks regarding the G4. Most of the leaks we’ve seen have been regarding the new leather backing the device is going to have. Others involve the camera. Well thanks to a last minute leak, we finally have an idea of the specs and size of the device.

According to the leak, the device will sit at 5.9 x 3 x 0.4 inches, just a wee bit bigger than that of the G3. The device will sport a slight top-to-bottom curve, much like the G Flex, and will come in at 0.14-ounces heavier than the G3 at 5.5-ounces. The screen itself will continue to pack the same size QHD (2,560×1,440) resolution as the current model, but will feature new display technology to improve image quality.

From what we see, it’s been all but confirmed that LG is using the Snapdragon 808 instead of the 810. It will also sport 3GB of RAM (DDR3 this time) and come with 32GB of onboard storage. Unlike the S6, the G4 will sport a microSD slot and will also have a 3,000mAh battery that’s swappable.

The camera gets a spec bump as well. The OiS, laser-focused camera is now 16MP and will feature a f/1.8 aperture lens. The front shooter will have an 8MP camera, up from 2.1MP. The device will have all the current wireless connectivity features and will come with both wireless charging and quick charging when plugged in.

Pricing and availability are yet to be announced, but we’re hopeful we’ll get an idea of what to expect tomorrow when the device is announced.
