The phablet market is currently being dominated by the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus, both of which are great smartphones, however the competition could soon be heating up, with LG CEO Cho Ju-No announcing that a “higher end device” than the G4 will be announced in the second half of 2015. An announcement on the LG G4 is expected in the second quarter of this year, whereas this alleged second device is rumored to be the LG G4 Note (hopefully not the final name choice).
Speculation points to a 5.5 inch 3K curved display for the LG G4 Note. A display of that resolution and size would result in a ppi of about 600, which would be the highest pixel density for a phablet (or smartphone in general) on the market to date. Other reported specs include a 16 MP front-facing camera and a 5 MP rear facing shooter. These cameras are switched around compared to the norm, so perhaps LG is focusing on selfies? While this does seem to be an odd design choice for a phone, LG is known for creating very high-end polished devices with useful extra features, so we’ll have to put our trust in them when it comes to the G4 Note.
