LG G3 Stylus with 5.5-inch Display UnveiledLG Newsroom

LG fans eagerly waiting for the release of the flagship smartphone, the G4, will be pleased to know that they don't have to wait for weeks to hold the device. The release date of the much-awaited smartphone is confirmed and it will happen just a day after it is unveiled.

The LG G4 will be released on 29 April in its home country, South Korea, after its unveiling event on 28 April, LG confirmed to Pocket-lint, contradicting earlier reports that the next-generation smartphone might hit the stores on 31 May. Early launch of the device will surely please LG fans around the world. 

The South Korean electronics giant is all set to announce its flagship device on 28 in six cities - New York, London, Paris, Seoul, Singapore and Istanbul – and has already sent out press invite that reads: "SEE THE GREAT FEEL THE GREAT."

The upcoming flagship device will be powered by Snapdragon 808 chip instead of the latest Snapdragon 810, reported The Korea Herald (via Phone Arena) citing a source. It claimed that LG's staging site under construction accidentally leaked a couple of images that gave a clear hint of a removable battery, memory card slot, and covers in plastic and leather. 

According to reports, the LG G4 will sport a 5.5-inch Quad HD display with 2,560x1,440 pixels, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, run on Android 5.0 Lollipop, and house a 16 MP rear camera with a wide f/1.8 aperture and an 8 MP front snapper. It is also expected to come packed with 32GB internal memory and 3GB RAM, and 3500 mAH battery.

The LG G4 is one of the most-awaited smartphones of 2015 but an analyst has claimed that it might not do as well as its predecessor, the G3, that has sold about 10 million unites since its release last citing huge competition from produxts like Samsung Galaxy S6, iPhone 6 and HTC One M9.

"The leather-backed G4 seemed to be an impressive product," Lee Seung-woo, an analyst from IBK Investment & Securities, was quoted as saying by The Korea Herald. "But the market conditions will not be favourable."
