LG begins to tease its next flagship smartphone

LG over the past week has been revealing small tatters of information regarding the LG G4, its next flagship smartphone. The Korean manufacturer today announced that the G4 will feature a 16 megapixel camera with an aperture of f/1.8, making it the widest aperture camera developed for a smartphone to date.

A wider aperture allows the camera to take in more light, and as such, results in sharper images when shooting in dark environments. For comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S6's camera has an aperture of f/1.9, and the iPhone 6's rear shooter has an aperture of f/2.2.

LG also confirmed that it will unveil the G4 on April 28, and that it will give 4,000 consumers across 15 countries a handset to "test drive" before its official launch. Australia is not included in this pilot programme.
