LG G4’s 2K screen is brighter and more colourful than the G3’s display

The G4 news refuses to die down ahead of the big launch

LG is continuing to release information on its upcoming G4 flagship in dribs and drabs, and today we’re treated to more information on its pixel-packed 2K screen.

The 5.5in 2560 x 1440 display is, according to the South Korean tech giant, 25 percent brighter than the G3’s screen, in addition to packing in a 20 percent wider colour range.

LG’s calling this its Quantum display, which suggests that it uses the same Quantum dot technology found in its 4K TVs.

Quantom dot technology works by using nano crystals that range in size from two to ten nanometers, and each dot gives off a different colour, depending on its size. When a film of these dots is places in front of an LCD backlight, picture brightness and colour reproduction are both significantly improved.

This is all good news for LG, as the G4 has some very stiff screen competition in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S6 - its 2K AMOLED display is the best smartphone screen we’ve ever laid eyes on, thanks to its punchy colours and true, deep blacks.

LG has also shared an official press shot of the G4 (shown above) which once again shows off its leather back.

With a 16MP light-sucking camera confirmed too, the only real thing we don’t know about the G4 is its insides.

While it’s long been expected to feature Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon 810 processor (the same one found in the G Flex 2 and HTC One M9), the most recent rumours have pointed to the Snapdragon 808, due to reported 810 overheating issues.

We’ll bring you all the full info from the G4 launch on 28 April, so stay tuned.
