LG’s new G4 smartphone pre-sale starts this week


LG, South Korea’s number 2 smartphone maker behind Samsung, said today that it will start pre-sales for its latest smartphone, the G4, this week just before the global launch. So it looks like you’ll soon be able to get your hands on this amazing smartphone.

G4 rollout on April 29 in Korea and five other countries

LG says they plan to roll out the G4 on April 29 in five countries including the USA, Britain, and Singapore. There will be a seven day pre-sales period that starts this Wednesday, and customers in Korea initially can buy a new G5 with any of the three local mobile phone operators – that’s SK Telecom, KT Corp, and LG Uplus, either on their websites or in a bricks-and-mortar store.

LG said that customers who pre-order the new G4 will get an external 64 GB hard drive for free and a one year guarantee for display repairs.

LG G4 with G Pen

The G4 is the next flagship device from LG, and the company hopes it will help it compete with its main rival Samsung, who has just release the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, but the G4 sports a higher resolution camera compared to those models, that apparently produces better shots in low light conditions.

The G4 also comes with a leather case on the back that is designed to provide better grip. The features of the new phone are already pretty much known to the public – in contrast to the norm where the market speculates on a new phone’s specs and design ahead of the release. That’s because details of the G4 were leaked last week on LG’s microsite for a few hours. However, some say that it was done on purpose by the company to see the market response.

In any case, the G4 is nearly here, so if you live in the UK, South Korea, the US, or Singapore, then you’ll be able to order the phone very soon.

    Quite excited about this. While I am disappointed my G3 hasn’t received Lollipop yet, the offerings from HTC and Samsung have left me wanting.

  2. My G3 has had lollipop for months. Maybe you should complain to your carrier?

    Mine is unlocked. I may have to go to the LG centre as the OTA definitely isn’t there.
