What if the next-generation top-end device from the South Korean giant who already debuts LG G4, prepping to launch another Pro version with metal build. Sounds familiar with the likes of a LG G4 Pro to be made of metal, according to the Korean publication ET News has it that this device might be called G4 Pro. Comes true?
The source also suggests that LG would like to build the G4 Pro out of metal in order to differentiate it from the leather packing G4, which of course is a plastic-made smartphone with optional leather back covers, can also be purchased seperately. When speaking about Samsung’s equiation, it has apparently dropped plastic treatment of metal and glass iterated with the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge.
Now that keeping in sight, LG believe that metal should be tested on “niche models” first, and, if everything goes perfectly, obviously with the build quality, it could then be used for its next device that have the potential to become hot selling. LG is however retailing fewer handsets than Samsung and Apple – both of which have flagship devices made out of metal. Right now, LG is facing the higher cost of metal, which profitability is likely going to suffer if the production cost per unit is higher.
Sony and HTC have already been offering devices made of metal and glass in favor of build quality over what LG’s offering with G4. LG besides building it out of metal, not sure what LG is planning to add to the purported G4 Pro to actually make it professional. Specifications wise, it looks like going with the last year’s G Pro 2 – a big competitor to Note 3 of Samsung’s Galaxy phablet range, which sports a 5.9-inch display, and expected to see such screen size with the G4 Pro or to be larger than the regular G4. May also feature a stylus pen, which indeed allow it to compete with the likes of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 5.
Since LG hasn’t made any confirmation about the final decisions when it comes to the G4 Pro, or what actually the name of the device would be in the end. For now, take this news with a pinch o salt and wait for the official LG G4 Pro announcement or for the new details arrival in the future.
