LG G4 Launch, Singapore
We’re here in Singapore to cover live the global launching of the LG G4. The launch will be held in 4 different countries, including Turkey, South Korea, UK and the US.
The Singapore event will start at 10AM tomorrow and we should be able to provide you with live updates throughout the program.
Just keep tabs on this page for details as we get them.
At the moment, the London and New York launches are happening.
LG did not really change the look of the G4 compared to the G3. The hardware is slightly different but with much attention given to the camera module.

The use of Snapdragon 808 gives us a good hint why LG didn’t go with the Snapdragon 810 as they’ve experienced with the G Flex 2. It can also be a bit confusing which one is the flagship since the G Flex 2 has the more powerful chip.
The removable battery also supports fast charging (Quick Charge 2.0) with 60% battery load in just 30 minutes.
The LG G4 is available in handcrafted, full grain leather in six beautiful colors. The vegetable tanned leather is not only environmentally friendly but also luxurious, using genuine leather instead of the usual faux material that other smartphones use. Other material options for the G4 rear cover are pure Ceramic White with 3D patterns, artisan-forged Metallic Gray and lustrous Shiny Gold.
That pretty sums up everything there is to know about the new LG G4.
That means our work for tomorrow will be mostly about the hands-on, benchmarks and getting sample videos/photos as well as details for the Philippine launch.
