LG's next flagship smartphone, the G4, has been run through the rumour mills ahead of its official unveiling. This smartphone is expected to be "radically different" from that of its predecessor, the current-gen LG G3, in terms of surface design and improvements under the hood.

Now, as per a tweet by technology tipster OnLeaks, the LG G4 will purportedly feature a large 5.6in screen as opposed to the G3's 5.5in screen. However, the resolution of the new screen is yet to surface at this point.

Apart from the display, LG G4 is also rumoured to come with the following key technical specifications:

  • Google Android 5.0 (Lollipop) operating system out of the box.
  • 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor.
  • 16 MP rear camera.
  • Fingerprint sensor functionality.
  • 3 GB of RAM.

LG has made public its intention to sell close to 10 million units of its G4 (once the smartphone is released). LG G4 is all set to be officially showcased in April 2015, and the high-end smartphone is touted to be LG's answer to rival South Korean electronics manufacturer Samsung's latest flagship, the Galaxy S6, which has reportedly received as much as 15 million pre-orders so far.

LG's current-gen flagship, the G3 is said to have received pre-orders numbering between 6 to 7 million ever since its launch in May 2014.
