LG G4 allegedly scheduled for April announcement

A new rumor claims that the official unveiling of the LG G4 is planned for the month of April. On the first day of March, two major Android flagships are expected to be unveiled, the Samsung Galaxy S6, and the HTC One M9 Hima. By unveiling the G4 later in the year, LG plans to distance its device from competing products.

Last month, an LG executive was quoted by the media stating that the G4 will not be unveiled at the 2015 edition of Barcelona's Mobile World Congress. Building up on the topic, a recent report from South Korean publication Korea Times indicates that LG will not unveil its upcoming flagship until April 2015.

Apparently LG executives made the decision to announce the G4 in April based on two major considerations. The first one would be that the manufacturer needs more time to perfect its upcoming flagship smartphone. The second has to do with the fact that both Samsung and HTC will unveil new flagships at MWC 2015. If LG had decided to unveil the LG G4 at MWC 2015 in the first days of March, then the announcement of the LG flagship would have competed for media and consumer attention with the official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M9 Hima. We should also bear in mind that the current LG flagship, the G3, isn't really up for its yearly update, as the smartphone was announced in late May and launched in June 2014.

According to rumors and leaks, the LG G4 will feature specs such as a 5.3-inch display with a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels (QHD), a 16MP or a 20.3MP primary camera, and an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset.
