The LG G3 reigned all smartphones for a quite a while in our Top 10 list in 2013 and through most of 2014 (it was only recently bumped to #2 by the Motorola Moto X). And now, with rumours of the LG G4 sprouting, will it be able to redeem its top spot?
Maybe so, if you consider some of the specifications that have been leaked online. A screenshot from an Android 5.0 Lollipop dump originating from Greece has made its way on the World Wide Web, showcasing some of the unit’s innards.
The source, TechManiacs, revealed that the unit would come beefed up with a 16MP back snapper, giving you a resolution of 5312 x 2988. That basically means you’ll be getting a 16:9 sensor, if the rumours prove to be true.
You might also find in its innards the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC chipset, just like the LG G Flex 2. Supposedly, there have been some overheating issues reported in association with this part, but despite the concerns, the Korean company could be going ahead with this make.
Plus, the G4 is rumoured to come out of the box with a QHD (2560 x 1440) touchscreen, setting it apart from the G Flex 2, which has a 1080p display instead. But, we’re expecting nothing short of a spectacular screen since that’s what we got on the G3. Sources also claim the unit might be 5.3in in size and have at least a 3GB RAM.
No images of the device were leaked though, which is a shame because it would actually make it a tad bit more convincing that such a device could exist. So we’ll be taking this piece of news with a pinch of salt until some more concrete leaks surface.
