South Korean electronics major LG has already announced its flagship G4 smartphone that is expected to hit the U.S. stores in the first week of June. It will be available on all five major U.S. carriers. While LG G4 is an impressive device with 5.5-inch display, 3GB RAM, 16-megapixel main camera and Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, the company is planning to launch an even bigger, better and faster device later this year to take on Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 5.
LG G4 Note rumors to run Snapdragon 810
According to Focus Taiwan, LG will launch a new phablet, which could be named LG G4 Note or G Pro 3, with a stylus. Last year, the Korean company had released G Pro 2, which did not garner as much popularity as G3 despite its high-end specs. LG has adopted a new strategy this year.
The Taiwanese website did not provide much details about LG G4 Note, except that it would arrive the second half of 2015. However, past rumors suggest that it would feature a bigger 5.7-inch or 5.9-inch 3K display, Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB of built-in storage, and 16-megapixel main camera with f1.8 aperture.
Can LG G4 Note challenge the Note 5?
It will also have a stylus, pretty similar to the one that comes with Samsung’s Galaxy Note series. LG G4 Note is likely to run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Its main rival, the Galaxy Note 5, is expected to be unveiled at the IFA event in September and hit the stores in October. Earlier this week, there were reports that the Note 5 would arrive in July to grab sales that might otherwise go to Apple’s iPhone 6S. But Samsung has refuted those claims.
The Galaxy Note 5 is rumored to feature a 5.89-inch UHD AMOLED display with a pixel density above 700ppi. Reports suggest that the Note 5 will run Samsung’s upcoming Exynos 7422 all-in-one processor that combines CPU, GPU, RAM, modem and storage on a single chip. Samsung is also expected to launch a dual-edge variant of Note 5.
