LG-G4

With the Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 official and on their way to the market in the near future, many folks are already turning their attention to what’s next — the LG G4. Up until now, LG hadn’t officially cemented a date for its big unveil, but now invites are going out for a special event on April 28th in New York, London, Paris, and on April 29th in Seoul, Singapore, and Istanbul.

The invite shows off what appears to be a notebook and bears the tagline: See the Great. Feel the Great.

The invite shows off what appears to be a notebook and bears the tagline “See the Great. Feel the Great”, with a “G” in the same font as LG’s G series logo. So what’s the tagline hinting at? It seems pretty likely they are planning some kind of visual change. One might think that the notebook might be hinting at some kind of faux leather, though it’s just as possible it could symbolize the company opening up a “new chapter”, whether that’s a metallic design, or the rumor of a more premium G4 “Note” device. Honestly, it could mean just about anything.

Turning to the rumor mill, while some rumors suggest LG will go with a premium metallic build, at least one rumor suggests LG will stick with plastic, saving metal for its rumored LG “G4 Note”. It’s still unclear if the “more upscale” flagship will debut next month alongside the G4, though LG has hinted that such a device is really in the works. Another possibility is that LG’s tagline could be referencing a switch to a curved design (as rumored by Korea Times), which would certainly make it feel and look differently than the G4’s predecessor.

Regardless of whatever LG brings to the table, we’ll be here to bring you all the latest news as it happens next month. What would you like to see from LG? Excited about the possibility of an even higher-end LG handset, possibly as direct competitor to the Galaxy Note series?
