LG's newest flagship may release as LG G4 Pro or LG G4 Note, LG fans hoping for Snapdragon 820


Rumor has been going around that LG will release a new handset on October 10. Although its name is still unconfirmed, speculations indicate that it could either be called the LG G4 Pro or LG G4 Note.

Popular leaker Evan Blass posted on twitter a photo of the rumored device lifted from TEENA, a regulatory body in China that lists forthcoming devices. The upcoming flagship, a phablet in size, is reportedly on the list with a model number LG-H968. Blass said on his post, “Brightness and contrast blown out to highlight the secondary display and prominent “V10″ badge on the back.” V10 is referred to as the secondary display between the main screen and speaker grille.

LG G4 Pro or LG G4 Note is said to come at 5.7-inch Quad HD resolution at 1440×2560 pixels. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, contrary to the earlier expectation of Snapdragon 820. Previously, Android guys expressed disappointment with LG G4’s processor, Snapdragon 808, but there are some reports that the Pro version, if this upcoming device is indeed the one, will have Snapdragon 820. However it seems that LG G4 Pro will still not carry Snapdragon 820, perhaps because the chip is still in its final phases of development and will be released either at the end of the year or early next year, after the expected release of LG G4 Pro.

Aside from this, the handset is expected to come with a 3GB RAM and a 64GB internal storage. For its camera, its front shooter is said to be 5 megapixels, while its rear shooter is expected to be 16 megapixels with dual LED flash and laser autofocus.

Meanwhile, other speculations about the device include a removable battery, rear-mounted power, and volume buttons, and maybe a stylus to keep up with other bigger size devices in the market.

In the meantime, fans will have to wait further for the official announcement from the company.
