LG’s Upcoming Flagship To Differentiate Itself Through Camera Prowess?

Do you remember the LG phablet that was supposed to be a “super-premium” smartphone, able to go beyond LG’s own G series and compete with the likes of Samsung Galaxy Note 5, S6 edge+ or even Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6s Plus?

Yeah, we do too, but unfortunately, LG’s CEO has recently backtracked on what were claimed to be his own words, while confirming that LG’s upcoming flagship smartphone will be released sometime during Q4 this year.

Today, new info regarding this “not so super premium” device have surfaced in the South Korean media, and although it won’t be something unimaginable, if these details are real, it will still be a damn great phablet.

According to the Korean media, citing industry insiders, LG’s upcoming phablet will excel in the camera department. It is being expected for the device to pack a Dual Camera setup and for LG to insist on the benefits of such a tech. Insiders are considering that LG will play the “dual-camera camera card” especially since its phablet’s main competitor, the Galaxy Note 5, comes with a regular shooter.

As far as “Super Premium” goes, we are being advised not to expect the Snapdragon 820 to make an appearance. Or for the phone to have a metallic build, unlike what we heard a while back.

While we are still hoping for LG to finally move to a metal build for its smartphones, the Snapdragon 820 claim seems pretty logical, considering that we won’t see Qualcomm’s SoC powering devices anytime soon (Xiaomi’s Mi5 being rumored to be the first such smartphone).

As far as the other hardware specs of LG’s phablet are concerned, the same rumor claims that it will feature a 5.8-inch QHD (2560×1440) Quantum Display (the same tech that debuted on LG’s G4), 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and a Snapdragon 810 chipset.

That’s about it for now, but we’ll keep you updated. In the meantime, what do you think about LG going back on the “Super Premium” claim or regarding its rumored intentions to play the “superior camera” card?
