LG G4 rumoured to rival Samsung with new ‘G Pen’ stylus


It’s that time of year when rumours start to circulate about what we can look forward to in the world of mobile tech in 2015.

One of the most notable rumours we’ve heard about so far is regarding the new LG G4 device.

According to reports in China, LG will soon offer a ‘G Pen’ stylus on its new G Series phone, which looks set to directly rival Samsung’s popular Galaxy Note 4.

Although the reports remain unconfirmed, if the LG G4 is to include a stylus it would seem that LG are eager for a slice of the phablet and stylus market, with is pretty much dominated by the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 currently.


The reports from China do provide some information on what we can expect in terms of specifications for the LG G4, which is thought to be released in May next year and could be showcased at either CES Asia which is held in the Shanghai in the same month, or at the Mobile World Congress 2014 event in Barcelona in March.

The LG G4 is said to feature 5.3 inch display with a Quad HD resolution of 2560×1440. It will be driven by a 64 bit Snapdragon 810 processor, with either 32 or 64 GB of internal storage. Other specs of note are said to include a 20.7 megapixel camera, which could be really interesting for LG fans.

The problem with rumours like this is that they are obviously not always accurate. The suggestion that the LG G4 is said to include only a 5.3 inch display in itself raises a number of questions. First and foremost, the fact that the LG G3 already has a 5.5 inch display means that you’d think it would be unlikely that LG would then release a new flagship device with a smaller screen than its predecessor. That said, stranger things have happened so watch this space.

    Currently a very happy LG G3 user. Coming from a an S4 I found the device to have a much snappier interface, and carrying a lot less bloat. One of the high points is definitely the camera and it’s ‘laser’ focus. For the first time a phone has all but replaced my point-n-shoot as my daily snapper, it is lightning fast. I will be very interested in the G4 if it has a 20m offering similar speeds and performance, although the pen holds no interest for me at all.
