19 Aug Lg Trying to Outrun the Competition
When Qualcomm announced at the Mobile World Congress in March 2015 that they are developing the Snapdragon 820 SoC chipset and that it will be built by Samsung for the first time, many people ordered quantities right then and there and hope to beat the competition by releasing the next generation of top of the line smartphones as first. While HTC was first to spread rumours about their version, tentatively named Aero, LG was the first one to come up with a real product and are only waiting on the delivery to set the whole thing up and start manufacturing the LG G4 Pro.
Although there has not been an official announcement yet, the prospective specifications have already leaked online and the octa-core smartphone will feature a choice between 32 GB and 64 GB of internal storage, with additional storage available per microSD slot; 4 GB of RAM; 5.8 inches IPS LCD touchscreen, resolution 1440 x 2560 pixels at 506 ppi; a 27 MP primary camera with laser autofocus and LED flash; the LG G4 Pro will also feature factory installed Android 5.1 Lollipop.
LG is also apparently working on the Nexus 5 2015 model, which is not yet announced, but is expected sometimes later this year. The rumour mill has the latest Google concept manufactured by LG featuring at least the Snapdragon 808, if not already the 820, but this is not the actual interesting point. The question here is will it feature the much anticipated next version of Android, the Android M. It will most likely be a 5.2 inches sized model in Full HD, the resolution expected to soar at 2560 x 1440 pixels at 564 ppi pixel density. The release date is not as of yet available, but is expected to happen in October of 2015. The release will coincide with the release of the Nexus 6, this time manufactured by Huawei.
