LG in a few days will take the wraps off the LG G4, its 2015 flagship handset designed to fight against Samsung’s Galaxy S6 models and HTC’s One M9.

Let’s face it — the Galaxy S6 isn’t going to have much competition from the Android market when it launches later this week. It’s not that there aren’t other great phones out there, perhaps most notable the HTC One M9 and the latest generation of the Moto X, but it’s hard to imagine either of those phones knocking Samsung off of its perch.

MyLGPhones has discovered a file on LG’s website that seems to indicate the upcoming LG G4’s display will have a 3K resolution. More →
LG at CES 2015 unveiled its second-generation smartphone with a flexible display, a powerful Android handset, but the G Flex 2 won’t be the company’s main phone this year.

When Apple launched the iPhone 5s in late 2013, it sported a special 64-bit processor that was unlike anything seen on a mobile device. At the time, many said the feature wasn’t really needed, with Qualcomm going as far as calling the chip a “marketing gimmick,” before retracting that statement. Since then, all of Apple’s competitors have released 64-bit mobile processors of their own, including Qualcomm… except now things aren’t going exactly as planned for the Snapdragon chipset maker.
