LG G4 ready to start global rollout this week
The new LG G4 flagship smartphone with a leather back is ready to hit commercial availability, with a global rollout scheduled to start this week.
The company has yet to offer exact launch date or pricing details for the handset, but said that it will start rolling out the LG G4 in "key markets" around the world.
More specifically, the LG G4 will first launch in Hong Kong this week, followed by Turkey, Russia, and Singapore. The smartphone will then roll out to Europe, North America, CIS, Southeast Asia, EMEA, and South/Central America. According to LG, roughly 180 carriers and retail partners are on board with the LG G4.
"Customers in key markets around the world will finally get their chance to own the latest advanced smartphone from LG Electronics (LG), one which industry experts have widely praised for its exceptional camera, vivid and expansive display, and willingness to set new rules in defining what a premium mobile device could be," LG touts in a new press release on Monday, May 18.
"The LG G4 is our most ambitious smartphone yet because it is unlike any other flagship mobile phone on the market today," adds Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "Our vision is to create our own set of standards without worrying about what trend other smartphones are following. We think we have a winning formula because the initial reaction to the G4 has been tremendously positive."
As a reminder, the LG G4 sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, packs a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor under the hood, Adreno 418 graphics, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage capacity, microSD support for additional storage of up to 128GB, a 16-megapixel rear camera with a large f/1.8 aperture, and an 8-megapixel front shooter. A 3,000 mAh removable battery will keep things up and running, while Android 5.0 Lollipop rocks the software side.
It remains unclear for now just when exactly the LG G4 will hit commercial availability in the U.S. and how much it will cost when it does, but more information should become available shortly. We'll keep you up to date as soon as we have more details, so stay tuned.
