Just when I was about to shut down my PC and bid farewell to yet another exhausting week (see my Nampo coverage), LG’s local representatives finally lifted the lid on their new flagship’s launch date.
According to the media ‘save the date’ sent on Friday afternoon, LG South Africa will be unwrapping the ‘limit-breaking camera to the sumptuous leather back cover’ G4 in Johannesburg on May 28. In case you missed it, the G4 is all about visual experiences, whether you’re looking at it or taking photos. It centers around a 5.5-inch Quad HD quantum LCD (the first on a phone, LG brags) with higher brightness and contrast, but it’s also focused on design, with an ever-so-slight curve and special backs that include ceramic and multiple shades of leather.
And seeing that PR is on our side, we’ll be live blogging from this event, you can also follow me on twitter @Papi_Mabele for live tweets. Local carriers (Vodacom, MTN) had not responded to queries on the G4 at the time of publish.
