LG has finally admitted that it encountered an issue with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor while testing it on one of its devices but it has been resolved, giving clear hint that the release of its flagship smartphone, the G4, may not be delayed.

It went on to say that the issue has been solved and "the LG G2 Flex and the LG G4 will be released on time."
There were reports that the LG G4 could be unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Conference 2015 (MWC 2015) from 2-5 March but it is very likely to be announced at a later date, perhaps in the month of May.
