LG will announce its latest smartphone, the G4, at an event on April 28th, the electronics giant confirmed via invites to the press today. The formal invite follows a teaser released a couple of weeks ago, and confirms the G4 name. LG has recently been ramping up hype for the G4 by teasing specific features, such as its new camera with f/1.8 aperture lens and new software called LG UX 4.0.
The G4 follows last year's G3, which had an impressive spec list, including a very high-resolution display, that wasn't backed up with real-world performance. The G Flex 2 from earlier this year suffered from similar performance issues in our testing. Hopefully LG has learned its lesson and the G4 will have the the execution to go along with the promises. We'll be reporting live from event on the 28th, so stay tuned for more.
