After releasing some early teasers, LG has finally taken the wraps off the LG G4, its eagerly anticipated new flagship smartphone. The LG G4 features a stunning 2560x1440 resolution, 5.5-inch IPS Quantum Quad HD (QHD) display at 538 pixels per inch—but the phone’s real centerpiece is actually located on the back of the handset.

The G4’s new 16-megapxiel rear-facing camera features an f/1.8 aperture lens, paired with terrific color accuracy, optical image stabilization, and extremely customizable software. It also boasts a manual mode that lets users customize settings—including shutter speed, white balance, and ISO—just as they can on a high-end DSLR camera. Powering it all is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with X10 LTE. The processor features dual-image signal processing technology for photos, helping users get a clear shot of their subject, even in a low-light setting. Plus, the 808’s lightning-fast integrated X10 LTE modem is engineered for users to seamlessly stream and consume their amazing photos and other rich media.  

LG’s new flagship handset also features 4K Ultra HD video recording and, thanks to the Snapdragon 808’s four-channel processing, offers crystal-clear sound recording isolated from environmental interference: audio sensors intelligently weed out the bad audio and keep the good. The processor also features the next generation Adreno 400 series GPU with a 20 percent bump in graphics processing from its predecessor, designed to deliver realistic high-definition images on that new QHD display.

As for battery life, internal testing has shown that the LG G4 can get over a full day of use on a single charge, in part due to the exceptional integration of the Snapdragon 808 processor. The phone also features the innovative Qualcomm IZat navigation technology, designed to harness the Snapdragon 808’s integrated data sensors to provide extremely accurate location sensing, even when you’re indoors or surrounded by large buildings.

“LG and Qualcomm Technologies collaborated from the initial stage of the Snapdragon 808 introduction to expertly tune the technologies and make several of the LG G4’s unique features possible,” said Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, executive chairman of Qualcomm Inc. “The resulting G4 smartphone is an ideal example of how the best optimized technologies to meet consumers’ needs can go a step ahead of just number of cores and number of scores.”

That collaboration has resulted in a handset that manages to pack in top features like a gorgeous display and a killer camera, while maintaining a well-rounded focus on important day-to-day functionality such as battery life, a removable battery, and a microSD memory-card slot.
