Rumours of an updated LG G4, likely named the LG G4 Pro, have been swirling for the last few months. Although we’ve yet to receive word from LG regarding the smartphone’s official existence, the company is expected to reveal the new device during an October 1 keynote presentation in New York.
Similar to the release of every major smartphone over the last few years, the leaks keep pouring out — although with October 1 only a couple of days away, there’s still a lot we don’t know about LG’s upcoming smartphone. Speculation indicates LG’s unannounced smartphone could be a budget phablet style device with a stylus, or the company’s often rumoured LG V10 “secondary ticker” smartphone (or both).
Recently, GFXBench showed off evidence of an LG device featuring the model number H900 and the name LG G4 Pro. According to GFXBench, from the technical specifications sheet alone, the G4 Pro seems like it’s set to be only a minor upgrade. The LG G4 will supposedly feature a 5.7-inch QHD display and an additional 1GB of RAM over the original LG G4, bringing the device’s RAM total up to 4GB.
However, apart from those two upgrades, it seems the G4 Pro is nearly identical to its predecessor. It features the same Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor, 15 megapixel back camera with 4K video shooting capabilities, and a 5 megapixel front-facing camera.
According to GFXBench, what’s still unclear is whether or not the LG V10 and LG G4 Pro are two separate devices, or the same phone with varying feature sets.
A few days ago LG revealed the above strange looking teaser regarding the company’s upcoming event in New York.
