Here is the specifications list of the new flagship from LG - the LG G4 -
Design
The physical dimensions of the device are 148.9x76.1x9.8 mm.The phone weighs 155 grams. As has been observed in previous flagship G3 from LG, the curved design has been maintained. But this time the curvature is too subtle. The is available in two options - with basic plastic rear cover and a premium looking "real leather". The plastic rear cover offers good grip. The leather back covers version gives a premium look to the device. The phone comes in a multiple of colors - Grey, White, Gold, Leather Black, Leather Brown and Leather Red.

Display
LG has introduced IPS Quantum Display technology with thus device. It sports a 5.5 inch qHD screen at a resolution of 2560x1440. Pixel density of the screen is 534 ppi. G4 is the first device in the word to employ the Quantum Display technology. It is said to be 25% brighter and 20% better color range. You will get better sunlight legibility with this technology.

Hardware
LG has come down a step below from G3 by replacing the Snapdragon 810 Octa core processor with 808 Hexacore processor. Processor has a clock speed of 1.8 GHz. LG is understood to have taken this step in view of the heating issues observed with 810 processor. GPU has also been changed from Adreno 430 in G3 to Adreno 418. The device has 3 GB on board RAM which must be treated as quite great for multitasking. Internal memory of the phone Is an impressive 32 GB that can be expanded upto 128 GB.

Camera
This is the biggest plus point of the new flagship. Phone carries a 16 MP rear camera stated to be the best in its class. It has wider aperture and in fact world's first smartphone camera to have this feature. It helps in getting better shots in low light. Camera resolution is 5312x2998. It has fastest auto focus. One more added feature is the Color Spectrum Sensor which sets up flash color and white balance depending on the ambient light. The phone also carries a 8 MP front camera which again has wider aperture for better snaps. Both the cameras are capable HD video recording.

Software
The G4 runs Android Lollipop 5.1 out of the box customised with OptimusUX 4.0. The UI is quite leaner with very less bloat ware. The phone features a Dual Window feature similar to Multi Window in Samsung devices which let's you run two apps on single screen.

Other Features
The phone needs a micro SIM to function. Other connectivity features include WiFi, Blue tooth 4.1, FM radio, microUSB, InfraRed, NFC and. GPS. Sensors on the device include Gyroscope, Proximity sensor, Barometer, Compass and accelerometer. Battery on the device is rated at 3000 mAh. Standard standby time as stated by LG is 375 hours on 3G and it can offer a talk time of up to 10 hours on 3G.

Pricing and Availability
The device is expected to be launched in india in May. No announcement has yet been made ö the exact pricing. It is estimated that it will be priced anywhere between. Rs. 65000 to 67000. LG may reduce this further to tackle Samsung Galaxy S 6.

Comparison with competitors
I would treat Galaxy S6 would be the primary competitor for G4. LG is trying to be premium looking with its leather back covers. But compared to S6's all metal and glass uni body design, the G4 does not impress much in the looks department.
In terms of hardware, both G4 and S6 share same architecture. The in house Exynos Octa core processor on S6 appears better on paper than the Snapdragon 808 on G4. Another major difference is in the screen size which is 5.5 inches in G4 compared to 5.1 inches screen on S6. However both of them share the same resolution. The bigger screen size of G4 makes it a bit bulky and heavy at 155 grams in comparison with S6's 138 grams. Storage is where LG excels. The internal memory of 32 GB can be expanded upto 128 GB, while S6 lacks expandable memory slot. But it comes in three variants of 32,64 and 128 GB internal memory.
The winning point for G4 could be it's excellent camera. With wider aperture for both rear and front cameras the phone captures really awesome snaps. The dedicated hardware for camera is an added advantage. S6 has a 5 MP front camera while G4 carries a 8 MP front camera.
Pricing is the deciding factor between the two devices. LG is likely to price the device strategically to tackle S6.
