Last night LG Electronics (LG) unveiled its latest LG Electronics (LGESA) smartphone to excited guests, giving them a sneak preview of the most ambitious smartphone yet. The eagerly anticipated LG G4 smartphone will be in available in store mid-June.

The new LG G4 is the successor to the G3, which exceeded all expectations in terms of sales and industry awards. With the G4, LG focused on delivering comfortable elegance, a great visual experience and a human-centric user experience.

The LG G4 camera features a rare-in-smartphones F1.8 aperture lens which allows 80 per cent more light to hit the image sensor than in the LG G3. The innovative camera module is paired with the new IPS Quantum Display that is better in every way than the innovative Quad HD display introduced to the world in the LG G3.

The LG G4 embodies human sensibility that is clearly visible in its Slim Arc exterior design and graphical user interface.

“LG is living up to its promise of innovation for a better life with a premium smartphone that is more focused on delivering a balanced user experience that can compete with the best of the best,” said Deon Prinsloo, General Manager LG Mobile. “We wanted to give consumers a truly human-centric device that combined the analog sensibilities with technologies that delivered real world performance. From the design to the camera to the display to the UX, this is the most ambitious phone we’ve ever created.”
