Camera quality has become an increasingly important feature to LG’s smartphones, and the company has already confirmed that the upcoming LG G4 will feature an improved 16 megapixel, f/1.8 aperture rear camera module. To help showcase the handset’s photography prowess, LG has brought in professional landscape photographer Colby Brown to take a few snaps and talks us through the features. See the video above.
Brown suggests that the smartphone’s camera offers superior color accuracy by automatically recognising indoor and outdoor environments, boasts a flexible “manual mode” to adjust your shutter speed and white balance, and that the f/1.8 aperture allow for brighter, lower noise images in low light conditions.
The collection of the images in the gallery below, taken from the video, all look rather impressive, and were apparently captured with an LG G4.
While a smartphone camera is unlikely to temp a professional or serious amateur photographer away from their gear, closing the quality and feature gap between everyday portable smartphone cameras and expensive, high-quality equipment is goal worth pursuing. We can’t wait to get our hands on it to see if the LG G4 can rival the impressive quality offered by the Samsung Galaxy S6’s camera.
