LG used to make giant, sq. phablets earlier than it struck gold with the 5.5-inch LG G4. Even though its display screen size technically made it a phablet, the LG G4 looked like a normal sized smartphone. Now it appears that LG may be working on another, extra traditional phablet LG G4 Note.
Now it seems that this could be called LG G4 Note, and it is going to be a phablet. An extremely high-end one, that’s, undoubtedly made to compete head-on with both the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the successor to Apple iPhone 6 Plus.
Focus Taiwan reports that a bigger LG flagship smartphone is coming within the 2nd half of the year, however that is about all we all know in terms of a rough launch date. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will likely be introduced in September at IFA just like the past 4 years.
According to the Korea Herald sources, the LG G4 Note phablet will pack a 5.5-inch screen with a 3K pixel resolution — a relatively meaningless term, however may equate to around 2880 x 1620 pixels — and pixel density of 600 pixels-per-inch, which is even larger than the 577ppi Samsung Galaxy S6. The device is said to sport a curved form factor, very similar to the G Flex line. An unbelievable 16 MP camera could grace the front of the phablet, taking selfies to new heights, while a wimpy 5 MP camera could sit on the back of the device. Something may have been misplaced in translation here, and we would not be surprised if the figures do not end up being reversed.
The main variations between this mystery phablet and the rumored specs we’ve heard for the LG G4 appear to be the camera’s concentrate on selfies and the display resolution. It is unclear whether the LG G4 Note will launch alongside the LG G4, or shortly after, and nothing is known about availability or price yet. We will keep you up to date as more info becomes out there.
