If you’ve been waiting for a different kind of flagship, LG Malaysia has finally announced the arrival of its LG G4. For our Malaysian market, it is priced at RM2,499 that comes with a genuine leather back and it will be available for purchase starting 4th July. In addition, they are throwing a free genuine leather quick case plus a battery charging kit that comes with a spare battery worth RM580 for a limited time only. As spotted earlier in SIRIM, the LG G4 will be distributed by Zitron Enterprise.
Looks like LG is seriously on a roll, releasing mid-range phones one after the other. The latest device to leak is the LG G4S, which is rumoured to be better than the LG G4c complete with a better processor and a larger, crisper screen.
LG has just announced a new, music centric mobile phone and its an Android machine called the LG Band Play. The mid-range smartphone is marketed towards music lovers mainly due to having a 1-watt speaker out back that apparently delivers a lot more kick than your average smartphone speaker.
The LG G4 has finally been spotted in SIRIM’s database, possibly heralding the device’s official arrival in the Malaysian market.
Before this, the only way for people to get the device was through gray importers and other unofficial channels, which means consumers could be paying more for smartphones that don’t carry official warranties. That said, could it be possible that LG is gearing up for a local launch?
The LG G4 may not be coming to Malaysia officially but the folks at LG has just sent us a unit for review. It went on sale in Singapore last month and it’s heading for the US this week. This is the only new flagship that packs a microSD expansion slot and a removable battery.

Another smartphone takes a dunking and this time the LG G4 is put to the test.
Apparently this isn’t the first time the guys behind itechworld11 have sent an phone for a swim as they’re known for sending lots of phones to their potentially watery depths to test out if they will survive. So will it?
The LG G4 is currently the only new flagship for 2015 that comes with a removable battery and expandable storage with a microSD slot. With LG Malaysia’s hiatus in the mobile scene, the only way to get it is via grey importers like DirectD. Initially offered at an expensive RM3,799, they have finally slashed its pricing with a huge cut.
The single SIM LG G4 is now going for RM2,699, which is RM1,100 less and it is closer to a Galaxy S6 pricing of RM2,599. For world travelers or those having 2 SIM Cards, the dual-SIM version is also available at RM2,899.
Rumour has it that there are two new Nexus phones in the pipeline. The two new devices are to be developed by Huawei and LG with Huawei’s first Nexus device codenamed Bullhead and LG’s project goes by the codename Angler.
LG’s Angler is reported to have a 5.2 inch display and a battery capacity of about 2,700mAh. The processor hasn’t yet been decided on by the band but they are considering the Snapdragon 808 that was used in the LG G4. Bullhead on the otherhand is going to be a larger 5.7 inch device sporting a Snapdragon 810 chipset and a pretty huge 3,500mAh battery. Both phones are expected to be announced sometime in October this year.
Google apparently is not going to announce a new Nexus tablet this year either, with the brand to continue sales of their Nexus 9 for the time being.
It’s been just over a month since the LG G4 got launched and it has found itself taken apart. This time however it’s the guys over at MyDrivers who have done the deed instead of our usual suspects over at iFixit. Also you might want to note that the LG G4 is the only new flagship out there to have a microSD slot and a removable battery.
As it turns out, dismantling the phone is a piece of cake, with just the removal of the back panel, batteries and a few screws getting the phone to bear it’s innards. The phone’s motherboard is laid out clearly and is a bundle of neatly stacked components with no excessively messy wiring, copper shielding or adhesive in the way.
So if your LG G4 gets damaged and needs a fix, it should be pretty easy to get it repaired and it shouldn’t cost as much just to peel the device open though the components could still cost quite a bit.

Hot on the tail of launching the premium LG G4 smartphone and announcing the LG G4 Stylus and G4c, the brand has confirmed that it will be launching a new flagship device by the second half of this year.
According to sources, LG confirmed that a new flagship that “stands above the G series” is in the works, with predictions pointing towards the new device potentially being the successor to the LG G Pro 2 to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Note line of devices. This is part of the brand’s “dual flagship strategy” which it kicked off last year with the launch of the G Pro 2.
However, the specs have yet to be finalized but LG says that the new phone will be pretty high-end. But the big question is how exactly is LG going to one up the LG G4?
