For now this is the second big flagship smarthpone that maybe is missing the biggest mobile event in the year. Rumors suggested that Sony may delay the launch of Xperia Z4 for later summer or autumn in 2015.
LG executive said for the South Korean Chosunilbo that it may postpone the presentation of G4 to perfect it.
“We rolled out the G3 in May last year so we do not plan to unveil the G4 at this year’s Mobile World Congress and will spend more time perfecting the new phone”, the LG executive said to Chosunilbo, without specifying the name of the director.
The possible delay of G4 might be connected to the problems with the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor. It was tipped that the next LG’s flagship will introduce this CPU and the recent issues with it may postpone the launch.
But the waiting may paid off for the consumers. Next wave of speculations pointed out that G4 will have improved 16MP camera, QHD display with 5312 × 2988 resolution and thinner bezel. Also it has rumored for 3GB or 4GB of RAM. Also there are reports that LG is developing own stylus which may be included in the new G4.
Still there is possibility for LG to show off the G4 in MWC 2015, but to get in production later this year. Also the information for the postpone launch is still to be verified, because the South Korean site doesn’t reveal the name of the LG’s executive.
Usually LG is using directors from the middle management to “accidentally” reveal the plans of the company to the media in control leaks. But in those cases the executives are standing with their names. In this case this wasn’t specify.
Plausibility for G4 is missing the MWC – 50%
