Earlier this year, LG has unveiled a range of new models under the G4 range such as the G4 Stylus, G4c and G4 Stylus. Now, new reports suggest that the South Korean electronics company is not done with releasing G4 devices as another model called LG G4 Pro is reportedly in the works.
In late July, a source from LG Electronics had revealed that there are plans to launch a "super premium" flagship handset later this year. However, such flagship has subsequently been refuted by LG president Cho Joon Ho. In a recent interview with Korean press, he stated that no one at LG has ever claimed a new model would be "super premium."
Gadget enthusiasts may not be convinced as an alleged upcoming model can easily fit with the said description. According to a South Korean IT news website iNews24.com, a high-end LG G4 Pro model will come with a 5.8-inch screen with QHD 1440x2560 resolution display along with the same Quantum IPS technology used on the LG G4.
It will be more powerful than the G4 as it will be equipped with a Snapdragon 810 chipset. 4 GB of RAM will be present, which is somehow expected given that the G4 already features 3GB RAM.
The upcoming LG handset is also seen as a frontrunner in the photography department. This is likewise predictable since the G4's primary camera is known to possess one of the best cameras on Android devices. An interesting detail that the iNews24 report mentioned is that the unannounced device will be integrated with not one but two 16-megapixal rear cameras, as seen on the image above.
If accurate, this setup will help users add depth to photos and allow them to refocus their images even after being taken. HTC One M8 users will be familiar with this feature as the 2013 HTC flagship also sports three cameras; a 5MP front shooter and dual "Ultrapixel" rear cameras.
Even though the full specifications sheet for the LG G4 Pro has not been released, features known so far based on the aforementioned source indicate that LG is taking the 2015 flagship smartphone race seriously. The device is expected to rival Apple's upcoming iPhone 6S, Samsung's new Galaxy Note 5, and Sony's Xperia Z5.
The newest LG phablet is reported to arrive either on September during the IFA event in Germany or on October, when Google and Microsoft are predicted to launch the LG Nexus 5 and Lumia 950 smartphones, respectively.
