LG G4 reportedly set for an April launch

The Korea Times states that LG plans to launch its next-gen flagship smartphone, the G5, in April sometime after unveiling the LG UX 4.0 user interface.

LG G4 to launch in April

“We will announce LG UX 4.0 before announcing the LG G4”, said LG President Juno Cho. “I think it is simply the best and the issue is how to best fit the new UX system into the G4 smartphone”.

Cho has also said that LG is already developing its own mobile processors for its next flagship devices – much like Samsung (with its Exynos line) and Apple (with its A series chips), as that enables them to differentiate from the competition, which mainly all use Qualcomm CPUs.

“Producing our own mobile application chips is very important. As LG Electronics has been consistent in developing these, we plan to gradually incorporate into our new models. We do have a lot of issues that need to be addressed, but second- and third-generation processors will be much better”, Cho said in a news conference.

3K resolution coming to LG G4

We don’t have many G4 pictures, so here are some LG employees instead.

Since the HTC One M9 was launched at MWC this week, to a rather lukewarm reaction, it’s hardly surprising that he claims the G4 will be radically different from the G3. But how different will it be? There were reports in January that the phone might have a resolution approaching ‘3k’, with 2,880 x 1,620 pixels – which is an insane amount for a mobile device.

LG needs to pull something special out of the bag if it’s to achieve third place this year behind Samsung and Apple. “We are aiming to become the world’s third-largest smartphone manufacturer this year in terms of annual sales. LG Electronics will be aggressive in promoting the G4 in major target markets such as Korea and the United States”, Cho said.

    Gee, thats all we need is another cellular phone. You know once upon a time there were people in the world that sat down on a bus, train, or even a buckboard with real live horses. They, after sitting down they would introduce themselves to each other, and carry on a conversation about just about anything coming to mind. People communicated, didn’t put each other on hold due to a call coming in, or excuse themselves from the group because a call on their cellular pone started to ring. Cellular phone
    ethics are non existent. It seems priority is one who is calling on the phone more important then a real live talking person in front of you. NO Matter what is being done, everything comes to a screeching halt…….because you have a call coming in. What in the world is going on here? Forty years ago we didn’t have these contraptions, but we managed to get things done. Now a days people feel like they can’t survive with out a cellular phone near by. You should see the people on a train that goes in area’s where there are no cellular service. Complete frantic sets in. And then when service is resumed, with in 5 seconds their on their machines telling all how frightful it was with no service!! I myself do not have a Cellular, nor do I want one. To me it is one technology I rather do without. It is more of a gossip line for the ladies then anything else. So I write this in view of your advertisement to say……Screw you and your product….don’t and never will need it!
