The G4 has a 16-megapixel rear camera with F1.8 aperture and OIS 2.0 – which now incorporates three-axis optical image stabilisation to reduce blur.

The camera also added Manual Mode for photography, allowing users to directly control focus, shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation and white balance.

The G4 is even capable of recording photos in RAW format.

“We are living up to our promise of innovation for a better life with a fashionable, premium smartphone that is more focused on delivering a balanced user experience that can compete with the best of the best. We wanted to give consumers a truly human-centric device that combined the analog sensibilities with technologies that delivered real world performance. From the design to the camera to the display to the UX, this is the most ambitious phone we’ve ever created,” said Scott Jung, Managing Director of LG Electronics Singapore.

The camera is complemented by a an Infrared sensor and Color Spectrum Sensor (CSS) for greater colour accuracy.

The front camera has 8-megapixels for better selfies.

The LG G4 has a 3,000mAh removable battery and is driven by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 808 processor with X10 LTE.

The G4 is the LG’s first phone to utilise the Korean company’s new human-centric UX 4.0 user interface.
