Don’t expect the LG G4 at Mobile World Congress, more time required to ‘perfect’ it

Don’t expect the LG G4 at Mobile World Congress, more time required to ‘perfect’ itThe LG G Flex 2 was more than enough to keep us occupied at CES 2015 earlier this month, but we’re still eager to meet the next proper smartphone flagship from South Korea’s second biggest player in mobile.

The LG G4 has kept a remarkably low profile, but that’s possibly because the South Koreans are taking their sweet time getting things right.

Speaking to The Chosun Ilbo, an unnamed LG executive says we shouldn’t expect the LG G4 to launch at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 in March, simply because it's too early.

See, the LG G2 was launched in August 2013, and the LG G3 quickly followed in May 2014. Sales of the LG G3 in particular were rather delicious, but LG is in no hurry to pump out another flagship.

“We rolled out the G3 in May last year so we do not plan to unveil the G4 at this year's Mobile World Congress and spend more time perfecting the new phone."

Yeah, when you put it like that, there really isn't any rush to get the LG G4 out and about. Take your time, guys.

Rumoured LG G4 specs include a QHD display (the LG G3 was one of the first QHD smartphones, incidentally), Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor (fingers crossed those overheating problems don’t throw a spanner in the works), several GB of RAM, a 16MP rear camera, and the latest version of Android, namely Lollipop 5.whatever.
