Recent report suggests that the LG G4 release date has been moved to avoid conflict with Samsung’s Galaxy S6 on Barcelona MWC 2015
Samsung and Apple are no doubt the two most popular smartphone manufacturers today. Going up against them is probably the most terrible idea a marketing division could come up with. Let?s take LG for example, they were going to release their LG G4 smartphone in this coming MWC on March but decided to move the date because of the competition with Samsung and their Samsung Galaxy S6 phone.
LG G4 release date moved to April to avoid conflict with Samsung Galaxy S6
Report from koreatimes suggests that the LG G4 smartphone?s release date was moved from their original date (MWC 2015) to April. According to one of their sources, ?LG Electronics decided not to release the G4 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) exhibition in Barcelona in March; it may release it in April.? Another source of koreatimes also said that the MWC is not the right place to release or show off the LG G4 because Samsung will be there with their Galaxy S6.
That source also pointed out the Samsung?s and Apple?s release of their latest flagship, he said ?Samsung usually releases its new flagship model in the first quarter of each year, and Apple in the second quarter,? he also added ?We need some in-between time to make a bigger splash.?
That may be true and wise, because you don?t really want to go head to head with one of the top smartphone manufacturers of today.
LG G4 will have Qualcomm?s latest processor
As stated by gadgets.ndtv, the specs for the LG G4 are still kept well hidden from prying eyes. The only specs that were revealed are the display resolution that is believed to be (1620×2880) 3k and the processor that they will be using, Qualcomm?s latest processor Snapdragon 810.
However, rumor from another report of gadgets.ndtv earlier this month suggests that LG G4 will run using the latest Android OS, the Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box and it will feature a 16-megapixel rear camera.
