The purported LG G4 Note is in news even before the release of LG's flagship smartphone, the G4. The new device is expected to be released in the second half of this year, setting up a possible clash with Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Apple iPhone 6s Plus as they are also expected to be launched later this year.
LG mobile chief Cho Ju-no had said at the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2015) event that the company is planning to release two premium devices this year, sparking off speculations that the company might venture into big screen devices after the release of the G4 either in April or May.
Interestingly, Korea Herald (via 9t05Google) reported citing sources that LG is planning to release a new device called the G4 Note this year and that it would come with a curved design and 3K display with 600ppi pixel density.
However, several reports have suggested that LG's upcoming next-generation device, G4 will sport a 5.6-inch display, placing it in phablet category rather a smartphone. Now, a report by PAU (Press And Update) has suggested that the speculated LG G4 Note might be killed, arguing that it is not logical for LG to release two devices with almost the same screen size.
The LG G4 Note will clash with two big devices - Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and iPhone 6s Plus – if it turns into reality. Samsung and Apple Inc. are expected to release their next-generation devices in the third quarter of this year.
Meanwhile, the LG G4 is expected to feature a 5.6-inch screen with 1440 x 2560 resolution, according to a report by a tipster with the handle @OnLeaks. It is expected to be powered by a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, run on Android 5.0 Lollipop, come packed with 32GB internal memory, 3GB RAM and microSD card up to 128GB, a 17MP or 20MP main camera and 4MP front snapper, fingerprint scanner, and a 3500 mAH battery.
