Back in the spring,
LG Electronics' head of Mobile Communications revealed during a quarterly
results presentation that LG will be releasing a "super-premium" handset in the second half of the year, dubbed
tentatively G4 Pro. There hasn't
been much info exactly what would that word entail, and LG later went back on
the "premium" wording, saying that its chief never uttered those
words, but there will indeed be a "hero" device from LG in the fall,
and, if Korean media is to be believed, it will be still quite intriguing, "premium"
build or not.
The LG director most recently mentioned that
this will be a high-end handset, slated for Q4 release. Today's Korean
publications are finally tipping the eventual specs, which include a 5.8"
IPS-LCD display, 4 GB of DDR4 RAM, and... Surprise, surprise... a dual camera
setup, claiming that the shooter will be its main differentiating point, when
compared to the Note5 and other premium phablets it will be up against. As for
the chipset, the rumored Snapdragon 820 is unlikely, says the source, which would probably leave us with
Snapdragon 810 still - hopefully the thermal management and
throttling issues that were shown with the LG
G Flex 2 will have been overcome by then.
