LG said earlier this month that Android Marshmallow is coming to the G4 soon (possibly quicker than pretty much every other non-Nexus smartphone), but a new post by the Korean company on its Poland Facebook page says that the update have been “temporarily suspended” due to technical issues (via AndroidBeat):

Nicolas, update is temporarily suspended due to technical reasons. We will keep you informed about the changes!

LG G4 promo for free microSD card, battery, and battery cradle extended through June 30


LG really wants you to try the G4, and that’s not surprising – it’s a good phone! To try and entice you to buy one, though, they’ve extended the promotion they’re running through the 30th of this month.

If you buy a G4 and receive it anytime from now through the 30th, LG will give you a 32GB microSD card, an extra 3,000mAh removable battery, and a battery cradle so you can charge both of your batteries at the same time, all for free. All you have to do is visit this page and give LG some basic information like the IMEI/MEID of your phone and where you bought it from. The retail and carrier partners working with LG on this promo include AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, U.S. Cellular, Best Buy, and Amazon.

The LG G4 doesn’t look too dissimilar from its predecessor on the outside, but on the inside it’s packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor (dual-core 1.8Ghz and a quad-core 1.44), the Adreno 418 GPU, a 3,000mAh battery, and 3GB of RAM. It also has a 5.5-inch display just like the G3, but the display is now a 2560 x 1440 IPS Quantum panel that’s very rich in color, brightness, and contrast, with an overall look that’s absolutely stunning. It’s worth checking out our review (which you can find here) for the full hands-on.

This year’s Android flagships have really gotten the beating from iFixit. The group gave the HTC One M9 a 2/10 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 a slightly-better 4/10, just as two examples. But the LG G4, which many believe to be the best Android handset introduced this year as of yet, seems to have an advantage in terms of repairability as well. At least partially due to the fact that it’s one of the only handsets left that has a removable back, iFixit has graced LG’s flagship with a repairability score of 8/10. expand full story

LG this evening took the wraps off of two new variants of its G4 flagship. First is the LG G4 Stylus that features a Rubberdium Stylus, which allows for note taking and drawing on the device. The G4 Stylus features a 5.7-inch display (vs 5.5-inch on the G4) and a 13MP rear-facing camera. LG didn’t offer up specific details regarding the features of the stylus.

In a pretty ambiguous press release, LG has come out this afternoon (or this morning for those in Seoul) to announce that its recently-announced G4 flagship will begin shipping this week to consumers in “key markets around the world.” The rollout will supposedly begin in Hong Kong, followed by introductions in Turkey, Russia, and Singapore… expand full story

LG may be late to the game as far as smartphone releases go, but the G4 is finally here and it’s ready to take on the competition. I’ve been using a T-Mobile variant of the G4 for a little over a week now as my daily driver, and it’s been a very pleasant experience. If you’ve been holding out for a smartphone upgrade, this is definitely one to consider….

LG is looking for ‘VIPs’ to apply for early access to its LG G4 flagship

LG has opened up a trial program for its to-be-launched LG G4 flagship, and will be giving the device to a “small group of VIPs” to give it a try before its official launch later this year. The program will also apparently include a “social media challenge” of some kind:

The all-new G4 is coming, but before the big release day, LG is giving a small group of VIPs exclusive access to the device through the LG G4 Trial Program. Best of all, you could be one of them. If you’re selected, you’ll receive a FREE brand-new G4 and a unique social media challenge to help you explore and show off the device’s full capability. Want to be considered for the program? To be notified when enrollment starts, simply sign up below. Spots are limited, so don’t wait.

The most front-facing (or back-facing?) change of the LG G4 is its new back cover design options, specifically the leather variant that LG has so widely touted. The device also packs some of the most advanced camera technology to ever be seen on a smartphone, including a new “Manual” photography mode and a F1.8 aperture.

As for specs, the phone has a 5.5-inch display, 3GB of RAM and 32 GB of flash storage by default. It’s ditching the Snapdragon 810 and packing the Snapdragon 808 SoC, and also sports a 3,000 mAh battery (which lasts more than a day on average).

We gave the G4 a quick look late last month, and a full review is on its way.

LG has today announced its new LG G4 flagship, packing hardware upgrades all-around, a plethora of rear cover designs, and the Snapdragon 808 system-on-a-chip. None of the specification announcements come as much surprise (thanks to the steady stream of leaks over the last few months), but now we have the official word on what LG’s latest contender will be bringing to the market… expand full story

There isn’t much new to see of the G4’s externals, as we’ve pretty much seen the device from every angle possible at this point. But what we can gleam once again from the above image, posted by LG itself on the company’s Google+ page, is that the previous leaks were indeed legitimate renders of the upcoming handset. expand full story

LG has slowly been revealing features of its upcoming G4 flagship ahead of its April 28th launch, and tonight the company has revealed the camera technology that the device will offer. In a press release, LG Innotek revealed that the G4 will offer a 16MP camera with an f/1.8 aperture, which is “the widest aperture camera developed” by the company. LG teased the camera earlier this week.

LG isn’t set to officially debut the G4 until April 28th, but the company can’t seem to contain its excitement. After unveiling the QHD display that the device will feature last week, the company has this evening announced LG UX 4.0, the interface that will appear on the G4. LG says the focus of its UX 4.0 interface is to provide a simple and easy to use interface that’s also highly customizable.

LG’s upcoming G4 flagship isn’t set to be unveiled until later this month, but the company this evening has announced one feature of the upcoming device. In a press release, LG Display unveiled a new 5.5-inch QHD LCD panel. LG claims that it has achieved a “quantum jump” in color gamut and brightness with this display, while also and perhaps more importantly, reducing power consumption. The display is also much thinner than any display before, according to LG.

LG this evening has sent invites to events being held simultaneously on April 28th and April 29th in New York, London, Paris, Seoul, Singapore, and Istanbul. At these events, LG will most likely launch its next flagship smartphone, anticipated to be the G4. The invite itself is relatively minimalist, with the tagline reading, “See the great, feel the great.”

A new set of photos published on XDA Developers claim to show LG’s upcoming G4 Note flagship smartphone. The images show a device with design similar to that of the G Flex 2, which was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year, but with a stylus.

It’s unclear if the device shown in these leaked images has an all metal body like reports have claimed the LG flagship will offer. One notable quality of the design, however, is that a stylus for the device appears to be located at the top left of the phone. This lends credit to the possibility that these images are of the G4 Note, not the standard G4. The G4 Note is said to be a higher-end device than the G4, similar to what Samsung offers with its Galaxy Note phablet line-up. Some, however, have suggested that what appears to be the stylus is actually just an antenna.

A couple reports out of Korea today highlight some of LG’s plans for the relatively near future, including a statement (via Korea Times) from the company’s mobile chief Cho Jun-ho suggesting that the upcoming LG G4 is going to be “radically different” than its predecessor. The device will reportedly feature a “metal-mixtured” body and sport the company’s LG UX 4.0, which Cho says will be announced sometime before the new phone.

Also, LG also reportedly has a completely new device series in the works (via Korea Herald), featuring more powerful specs than the current top-of-the-line G series… expand full story

According to a new report from the Korea Times, LG has decided not to release its expected G4 flagship at Mobile World Congress next month. Instead, the company plans to release it on its own during April. Last year, the G3 was released on May 27th, but LG is believed to still anticipate releasing its successor before that day this year.
