LG’s wearable will also become available in Canada, France, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong, Ireland, India, Italy, Spain, Japan as well as the UK and the US later this month.
The LG G4 that’s launching end of this month is expected to shake up the camera phone segment with its faster f/1.8 lens. To showcase its imaging capabilities, they have engaged professional photographer Colby Brown to use the LG G4 as his new camera.
From the teaser, he highlights the G4’s low light capability, colour accuracy and better controls with an array of manual settings. At the moment, the Galaxy S6 / S6 edge with a 16MP f/1.9 shooter is a stellar camera phone and it looks like LG is trying to have an edge over it with a faster f/1.8 lens coupled with a 16MP sensor with Optical Image Stabiliser.

The next flagship to be revealed is the LG G4 on the 28th of April. In its second teaser, LG focuses on its new IPS Quantum display which pushes a similar Quad HD resolution of 2560×1440 as the previous LG G3. While the resolution and 5.5″ screen size provides the same 538ppi pixel density, the new Quantum display promises 25% brighter and 20% wider colour range than its previous model.
The LG G4 isn’t much of a surprise anymore as it was leaked quite extensively over the weekend. The back of the device comes with a full leather back option with stitching details, along with its signature rear mounted volume rocker and power button. The camera has been confirmed to be a f/1.8 16MP unit while the front gets a larger 8MP shooter.

Like what we’ve seen from its teaser, the new G4 will be having several leather back options that comes with thread stitching details in the middle. This looks like real leather and it should be more premium feeling than the faux leather execution on the past Galaxy Note series. Apart from the leather back series, there are also standard LG G4 with a more glossy back cover.
LG will be announcing their new flagship smartphone very soon, and as we highlighted yesterday the LG G4 will be sporting a F/1.8 lens which is better because it lets in 11% more light than the F/1.9 lens that their rival is packing.
There is also laser focus sensor as well as a dual-tone LED flash with the volume and power buttons perched underneath, with the leather possibly hinting at a back cover styling but we’ll find out on 28th April when the launch happens.
LG will be announcing its new flagship soon and they have their home rival, the Samsung Galaxy S6 to beat. While the S6 boast a fast f/1.9 lens for both front and rear cameras, LG is raising the bar with a faster f/1.8 lens as highlighted in their first LG G4 teaser video.
The LG G4 is confirmed to have a 5.5″ Quad HD IPS LCD display that’s similar to the current LG G3 but the new generation display boasts better contrast ratio and increased brightness of up to 30%. In terms of hardware, it was speculated that the G4 would use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 Hexa-Core processor that’s mated to 3GB of RAM. The main camera is likely to be a 16MP shooter that’s further assisted by Optical Image Stabiliser.
For u folks in Malaysia, the future of LG’s mobile business is still a question mark and until now there’s no visibility if they would offer the LG G Flex 2 which was announced in January. If you’re interested, fret not as grey importers such as DirectD would likely to sell the device almost immediately after its international release.
The LG G4 will be announced on 28th April 2015 and we can more hints to come as we get closer to launch. Watch the teaser video after the break.
LG has just outed a new generation 5.5 inch QHD IPS LCD display that has a whopping 538ppi and 120% colour gamut.
The 2,560 x 1,440 resolution display will be on the upcoming LG G4 when it launches on April 28th, with the new panel supposedly having such a high touch sensitivity that it will be able to respond to touch commands with water drops.
The contrast ratio also has been improved to be 50% higher than conventional QHD LCD panels and brightness has been bumped up by a good 30% as well. The way it does this is by using a photo-alignment technology that utilizes UV light to get the higher contrast while the better brightness is done by aligning the liquid crystals to reduce leakage.
The big question now is how the new panel would affect power consumption for the LG G4?
Wearables are personal. Putting a smartwatch on your wrist is like making a statement — I’m cutting edge and I’m stylish. That’s the reason why smartwatches have evolved from square displays made out of plastic to stylish timepieces crafted from polished steel and glass. And this is one of the most stylish smartwatches at Mobile World Congress 2015 – the LG Watch Urbane.
The LG urban is stylish because it doesn’t look or feel like what a typical smartwatch. The round watch face, the polished metal body and a selection of quality straps made out of leather, metal and various other materials, means the LG Urbane is built to last with a timeless, classic look.
The LG Urbane is stylish because it looks like a very well made mechanical watch. The centre piece of the Urbane is its bright and clear 1.3-inch plastic-OLED display (320×320/245ppi). It may not be as advanced as the 1.4-inch AMOLED display and on the Huawei Watch with its Sapphire glass high 400×400/286ppi resolution but the display on the Urbane is still very good to look at.
There are two versions of the available. The standard version, which runs on Android Wear and will require you to pair with a smartphone to work. And the LTE version with built-in LTE and can work without the need to be pair to a companion device, thanks to the proprietary LG Smartwatch Platform.
Early last week, LG had announced its premium Urbane smart watch that comes with a circular display and an upmarket all-metal design. Ahead of MWC 2015, they have just announced an upgraded version that comes with 4G LTE connectivity.
At first glance, it looks like a direct competitor to the Samsung Gear S and it even supports high quality VoLTE calls (Voice over LTE). To last longer on your wrist, the Urbane LTE comes with a 700mAh capacity unit (Standard Urbane: 410mAh), which is the largest for a smart watch but LG didn’t mention any battery life ratings. On top of that, LG has also included NFC which allows mobile payment without the need of taking out your smart phone from your pocket.
