LG has really shown off its abilities the last couple of years with the G2 and G3 smartphones. However, it seems they are striving to do better, as the G4 will be radically different.

The Korea Times ran an article that stated that the G4 will have a “metal-mixtured body, and is expected to be released next month.” However, Cho Juno spoke in a news conference that their next user experience will “deliver significant improvements in user-experience”.

“We will announce LG UX 4.0 before announcing the LG G4. I think it is simply the best and the issue is how to best fit the new UX system into the G4 smartphone.” -Cho Juno

The article also reports that LG is working on its own in-house mobile processors. This may be due to the reported overheating issues the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor has been having, but Juno says that Qualcomm is still industry-leading, and that LG has a long ways to go with their chips.

Another interesting tidbit that was reported today by The Korea Herald is that LG is working on another series that “stands above the G series”, and will be released during the second half of this year. There are no specifics mentioned, but the article says it will have upgraded specs compared to the G series.

LG really wants to solidify their spot as the third top global smartphone manufacturer in terms of revenue. Perhaps this new LG UX 4.0 and new high-end series can do the trick.

  2. Sounds to me like LG is really trying to make waves, and they are going to. For me the thing that gets me excited the most about the g4 is going to be the new user interface, I just hope that those of us that decide to stick with our g3’s will get a update to include the new UI, we can only hope. For me they did such a great job on the g3 that I will be using it for some time to come, also the prospect of metal body to me doesn’t work, I like having the option of removable battery, which if they go with a metal body there is a good chance the battery will be non-removable, just don’t do what Samsung did with the galaxy s 6, LG and that is take a couple of steps backwards for the sake of how the device looks.

  3. when are these cellular device vendors going to “get” the notion that the software they write is unwanted and unnecessary for 99.99% of Android users. just be smart and let Google do the software engineering for you… say no to the bloat…
