1 minute read

LG began its global rollout on Monday of its new flagship G4 smartphone, which reviewers said could be one of the best Android phones out there.

The G4, already on sale in South Korea, will first hit the Hong Kong market before rolling out into Turkey, Russia and Singapore, the company said in a statement. The smartphone will eventually go on sale throughout of Europe, North America, Southeast Asia and other regions, though LG did not provide a specific timeline.

Unveiled last month, the leather-bodied G4 has become known for its 16-megapixel camera with a rare f/1.8 aperture lens — that means the G4 lets in more light than its two biggest competitors, the Samsung S6 and the iPhone 6. The device also comes with a manual shooting mode, allowing users to adjust settings like white balance, ISO and shutter speed, giving the 5.5-in. smartphone the feel of a DSLR camera.

LG has not yet announced a price for the G4, but it’s speculated to be around $600.
