LG announced its new G4 flagship just hours ago, and we’ve already gone hands-on with the device. If you can’t tell by our first impressions video (attached above), this is a really nice smartphone. Many of you are probably wondering where you can get this beauty. Well, since it was just announced earlier today, not many carriers have confirmed exact availability dates quite yet, but many have come forward to say that they’ll eventually carry the device.
The LG G4 has a 5.5-inch Quad HD IPS Quantum Display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution and 538ppi. It boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, Adreno 418 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage and MicroSD expansion up to 128GB. It also has a 16MP rear-facing camera with an f/1.8 aperture and OIS 2.0, an 8MP front-facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture, a removable 3000mAh battery and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Of course, we’ll update this post as we learn more details on the phone’s availability, but here’s what we know so far:
