LG G4 reveal rumored to happen mid-April, but that doesn’t mean it’ll launch late



LG gave us no reason to believe they’d be bringing their next flagship to Mobile World Congress, and now another report seems to support that theory. Korea Times reports the LG G4’s revelation won’t happen until mid-April.

The company reportedly needs more time to get the device just right, a move that you should be happy with if you value a stringent QA process. The timing is interesting when you think about the reports suggesting Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chipset has overheating issues.

Qualcomm is supposedly looking to introduce an improved version of the chipset so it’s possible LG could be waiting on this, though LG’s recent knight in shining armor moment to defend the Snapdragon 810 inside the recently introduced LG G Flex 2 would then become odd in hindsight.

Having the LG G4 announced in April doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll be late to the late Spring / early Summer launch party most companies like to attend. If you don’t recall, HTC delayed the announcement event for the HTC One M8 a full month after Mobile World Congress 2014, and the device launched on major carriers in the United States and Canada that very day.

All of that is to say that the lack of an LG G4 at Mobile World Congress shouldn’t worry anyone. It’s coming — it’s coming soon, actually — and it should be quite the device once LG finally takes the wrappers off.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. If they can increase the screen size even more without enlarging the phone and add stereo speakers this phone will be a beast

    1. Increasing screen size AND stereo speakers AND keeping the phone the same size? I think you are asking for quite a lot my friend.

    2. I think 5.5 inches is the new sweet spot for smart phones. What ever they do i really hope they dont go smaller! I would like to see it stay at 5.5 personally.

  2. M9 – S6 – G4.. one is in my immediate future, but I doubt I can hold out for the G4 release.

    1. I’m with you. I want to wait for the G4 but it might be too hard. Already been waiting long enough since passing on the Note 4

    2. Z4. Letter and number combinations ftw, haha.

      1. Don’t forget N6.

  3. I’m waiting until they include teleportation :)

  4. LG and it’s 15mins of fame is over and they are taking Qualcomm with them down the drain you couldn’t make up this stuff if you tried. Everybody needed to hop on the LG bandwagon since the G2 and what have you gotten same old plastic shinny junk year after year. The G3 was a battery draining overheating joke and the G4 won’t be any different. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will wipe the floor of the LG G4 and useless dull Htc M9 so easily it’s comical.

    1. “The G3 was a battery draining overheating joke and the G4 won’t be any different.” Yeah, cause *maybe* a couple dozen reports of overheating means that all of them do it too. What a joke.

  5. May as well hold out for the not 5 at this point.. S6 purports to have a whopping 5.2 incher! Sony z4 same deal.. Bahhhh we are regressing.. At least make 5.5 the sweet spot yo…
