LG To Let 4,000 Fans Test G4 Early


It appears that LG is following the customer-friendly path of ASUS and some other manufacturers by allowing 4,000 lucky fans to test drive their G4 flagship before it officially goes on sale. The press release below does not offer the full details of how the lucky 4,000 will be chosen, but we should get some more info from LG themselves before the April 28 unveiling of the G4. Apparently LG will select applicants based on responses to some type of survey, which will be available in the 15 listed countries, including the United States.

Earlier today LG posted another teaser for the G4 which strongly hints that the phone will have a f/1.8 camera. The new teaser also shows off a clear leather texture on what appears to be the back of the phone. Many have speculated that we might see a leather texture on the G4 similar to the Moto X 2014 edition. Using leather on the back of the phone instead of plastic would be a way for LG to increase the quality of the build without going to a full metal body. We have also seen LG announce a new 5.5 inch QHD panel that will be used in the G4, and benchmarks have suggested the phone might run the Snapdragon 808 to quell any overheating concerns of the 810. We also recently got several details on UX 4.0, which will run the software side. The G4 leaks are in full swing and we will continue to keep you up to date!

LG mentions in the press release below that more details on the contest to try the G4 early will be announced via their social media accounts so stayed locked to those if you want to win!

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
