LG G4 camera module announced: 16MP, 80 percent more light
April 28 is when LG is going to unveil the 2015 flagship, the G4, and the company is not shy about letting everyone know when it will happen, and what to expect. We’re referring to the leather-back phone on the invite, which also unveils some camera bits. Apparently, the LG G4 camera will be better, as the company has just announced its brand new camera module, the one that will be featured on the G4.
We’re looking at an aperture of f/1.8, and LG Innotek claims it is the “widest aperture camera developed for a smartphone”. 80 percent more light (compared to the LG G3) is what LG claims this camera system will let in, which means better low light sensitivity. Couple that with (hopefully) optical image stabilization (though there’s no word yet), and we might be looking at a pretty neat camera (to compete with the excellent shooter on the Galaxy S6). 16 megapixels is the size of the sensor, should you care about pixel count.
In addition to the back camera, a new front-facer has been also unveiled: eight-megapixels, with an IR filter on top, which, according to LG, should help keep colors natural. Look for both of these cameras on the upcoming LG G4.
The imaging system is not the only component we know to expect on the LG G4. The company unveiled the 5.5-inch QHD display which will be part of the flagship, and we’ve also seen bits of LG’s own user interface, dubbed LG UX 4.0.
Now we just need the phone in our hands, to feel that leather on the back.
