LG G4 May Sport 16-Megapixel Camera and Snapdragon 810 CPU

If the rumors are to be believed, an LG G4 is on the way. According to the latest whispers, the Korean electronics giant may pack a sharper rear camera and powerful new processor into its next flagship.

Based on code found by Techmaniacs, the purported LG G4 could get a 16-megapixel rear camera, up from 13 megapixels on the G3. It's also expected to pack Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB of RAM, and run Android 5.0 Lollipop.

These specs aren't very surprising or exciting right now. If the G4 does get a 16-megapixel shooter, that would put it on a par with the Samsung Galaxy S5. Reports indicate that the possible Galaxy S6 may rock a 20-megapixel camera, though, so LG may still have some catching up to do.

During our review of the LG G3 we loved the 2560 x 1440 QHD display, which was the highest resolution phone on the market. It also sported the rear key design that functions as a volume rocker and power button on the backside of the phone. It's unclear if LG's newest flagship will retain those features.

LG is expected to unveil its next-generation flagship at Mobile World Congress in Spain this March. We'll be reporting live from the event, so stay tuned for more news.
