LG’s most ambitious smartphone is here: the LG G4

LG G4

Today, LG Electronics announces the LG G4 smartphone (successor of LG G3) simultaneously at launch events in New York, Paris, Singapore, London, Seoul, and Istanbul.

It features an F1.8 aperture lens which we rarely see in a smartphone. This allows 80% more light so you can take even better night shots (or at the places where light is scarce). Keen photographers can also go for Manual Mode to manually control the focus, ISO, shutter speed, white balance, and exposure compensation. Not good enough? How about being able to save your photos in RAW mode for advanced photo editing? Splendid, right?

LG G4 CameraFor casual photographers and even selfie lovers, you are not being left alone too. LG G4 has an 8MP front-facing camera that can take good quality shots just by using a gesture with one hand.

LG G4 is powered by a 5.5-inch IPS Quantum Display (Quad HD, 2560×1440 with 538 ppi) with Advanced In-Cell Tough (AIT) technology to improve touch sensitivity and calibrated for DCI (Digital Cinema Initiatives) standards for colour expression. It’s powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with X10 LTE, 3GB LPDDR3 RAM and 3,000mAh removable battery.

If you love the leather look, you can opt for an LG G4 with full grain leather in six different colors to suit your style. There are also other options for the rear cover with pure Ceramic White with 3D patterns, artisan-forget Metallic Gray, and Shiny Gold. I definitely would go for the awesome and luxurious leather look.
