Well, today’s the day for LG fans, with the company all set to reveal its latest flagship handset this afternoon.
Yes, the LG G4 is going to be unveiled in just under six hours from now. The launch event kicks off at 16:00 GMT, and we’ll bring you the details of the new handset of course – but you might also want to watch the proceedings live online.
There is some controversy, mind you, over whether the event will actually get a live stream this afternoon. PC Advisor says it has heard from LG that “there will be no live video coverage of the event today”, yet it doesn’t sound fully sure of this, and acknowledges that other tech sites are pointing to live coverage – and PCA notes it will show the stream if it does happen. At any rate, hopefully we will see a live stream.
It could well pop up here, on the official LG web page, where there is currently a link to a teaser video (you can see that clip above), and a big countdown – hopefully that timer is for when the live stream will come online.
The local times for the launch are as follows:
- San Francisco - 8am
- New York - 11am
- London - 4pm
- Hong Kong - Midnight (Wednesday)
- Sydney - 3am (Wednesday)
The LG G4 is expected to carry a 5.5in display, Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 16 megapixel rear camera with an f/1.8 sensor that should take some pretty neat low-light snaps. It’ll have its work cut out to best the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge snapper, mind…
