LG recently confirmed that they just started rolling out their latest flagship smartphone, the LG G4. The device first started showing up in Hong Kong shops, earlier this month, but you can expect to find it in shops world-wide by early June the latest.
The company did not offer specific dates for each country however, so if reviews and rumors made you want to check it out, you want to keep an eye on the stores near your home and / or workplace.
On the short list of things that the company did share, we know in which order the countries will start selling the LG’s new smartphone, the G4 – Hong Kong, followed by Turkey, Russia and Singapore, with the popular belief being that most of the European countries will soon follow after them. The device will then roll out in North America, CIS, Southeart Asia, Middle East Africa and South Central America.
As a reference point, the United States launch is expected to take place somewhere in early June, next month.
T-Mobile is rumored to be the LG G4’s first carrier in the United States. T-Mobile did address the subject, and revealed that you will be able to purchase LG’s new smartphone starting with June 2, 2015.
Verizon is strongly believed to be the next chain that will sell the G4 in the United States, however their launching date for the G4 remains unknown for the time being. Industry experts are optimistic though, believing that Verizon won’t be far behind T-Mobile, and one company website might have accidentally revealed the date – June 4.
The website in question, verizonwireless.com, used a photo for the LG G4 which had the date on the phone’s display set as June 4. It’s not uncommon for smartphones, watches and other gadgets to be set to show their launching day and even hour, before product photos for ad campaigns are about to be taken.
Sprint and AT&T are also likely to decide on an early June date to start selling the new G4.
LG’s newest offering, the G4, features a sizable 5.5-inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel (QHD) quantum display which is known to offer superior color reproduction, and introduces a little bit of a curve in the visual design (it helps avoid shattering the screen if you happen to drop it).
The device is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, has 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (microSD expandable), and a 3.000mAh removable battery (but no Quick Charging or wireless charging available unfortunately).
The new LG G4 smartphone adds a redesigned camera with a larger sensor, and benefits from Android 5.1 with LG’s own custom UI on top. It also ships with a stylish, hand-crafted leather back that comes in a variety of colors.
Google productivity apps are pre-installed on the device and Chrome will be found as the default internet browser.
LG is particularly proud of its GPS navigation and location services this time around, calling G4’s twice as accurate than that of any other phone available right now on the market.
The price of the LG G4 will vary from country to country, as smartphone prices usually do. Unconfirmed reports suggested that United States retailers will sell the phone for about $600 without a contract, and for around $200 as part of a U.S. carrier deal.
