LG Reportedly Favouring April Release For G4
The Korea Times has reported separate sources as stating LG will not be unveiling the G4 at MWC.
“LG Electronics decided not to release the G4 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) exhibition in Barcelona in March,” The Korea Times reported a source as stating. “It may release it in April.”
A second source stated that from a marketing point of view MWC is not the right place for LG to unveil the G4, with Samsung set to unveil its flagship Galaxy S6 at the event.
“Samsung usually releases its new flagship model in the first quarter of each year, and Apple in the second quarter,” The Korea Times reported the source as stating. “We need some in-between time to make a bigger splash.”The LG G3 was launched at the end of May last year, hitting the Australian market at the beginning of August. It has been suggested a 3K (1620 x 2880) display might be on the cards for the G4, with My LG, which reported the rumour, basing its information on a leaked document.
It has previously been rumoured the G4 will feature a slightly smaller display than its predecessor, sporting a 5.3″ display, down from the G3’s 5.5″ display, while it is expected the G4 will be powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor.
