LG sent out invitations to press this evening for an April 28th event that is going to be taking place in New York, London, Paris, Seoul, Singapore and Istanbul. (Due to the magic of time zones the event will be taking place on the 29th for those last three locations.)
The safe bet is that the announcement is for the LG G4: the invite says “See the Great” and “Feel the Great,” with the G in both cases matching their traditional stylized G. The invite features a stitched leather background, which would be an interesting break from the rest of the crowd that is leaning towards all metal construction these days. LG is rumored to be steering in that direction as well, but not until the G4 Note.
This timeline for the G4 announcement lines up nicely with reports we brought you last month indicating that LG was pushing the G4 release in order to get out from the shadow of the HTC One M9 and the Samsung Galaxy S6. At the moment this seems like a wise strategy, but we’ll have to see if it was worth the wait come April 28th.
Is there anything that LG can bring to the table with the G4 that will win you over?
