It might occur subsequent month, or it might be the figment of varied tipsters’ imaginations.
It’s not simply HTC that has a complicated slew of Android handhelds within the pipeline for this fall, with LG already open concerning the official specifications and focused market of the mid-vary Class, and at the least two high-enders additional due out by the top of the yr.
No, the lengthy-rumored G4 Pro and lately leaked ticker display-sporting V10 aren’t one and the identical. The latter feels experimental, although it’ll allegedly get a high-profile October 1 announcement in New York, whereas the “improved” G4 ought to go up towards the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Word 5 globally.
If it’s actual, and if it’s still coming, which serial leaker @OnLeaks attests to, but different sources name into query. More than likely, the Pro household is extinct, so a totally different moniker may be within the works. G4 Plus? G4+? Maybe G4 Observe or G4 Pen if the premium phablet wields a stylus accent?
Your guess is nearly as good as ours in the meanwhile, but with a G Stylo and G4 Stylus out and about, these final two theories appear uncertain. Don’t attempt to learn an excessive amount of into the above blurry image both, because it’s merely a placeholder, and don’t act shocked if LG finally decides to unveil the subsequent-gen flagship early subsequent yr, at CES or MWC, as an alternative of the very final days earlier than the 2015 vacation season opener.
In any case, if the V10 have been to certainly go on sale stateside, and its specifications are at the least marginally higher than the G4, why hassle with an additional incremental upgrade, unlikely to undertake a full-metallic development?
In addition to, as soon as the Snapdragon 820 SoC sees daylight in 2016, LG may have greater fish to fry, i.e. stronger rivals to compete towards.
