The LG G4’s camera will let in 80% more light


LG seem to like teasing us before releasing devices and that trend continues as they give us a little more detail about the new camera module on it’s upcoming flagship the LG G4.

The G4 is set to feature a 16-megapixel rear camera with an f/1.8 aperture, this aperture should make low light shots look great. It is also worth noting that this is ever so slightly wider than the aperture found on the Galaxy S6 that features one of the most impressive camera’s I have ever used. LG has told us that the camera on the G4 will let in nearly double the amount of light of the G3, which already featured an impressive camera. Here’s what LG had to say:

“The advanced design of the camera module means that it receives 80 percent more light than in the highly praised camera found on the LG G3. More light means better looking images in low light environments and less blur when shooting action and fast moving objects. Large apertures on smartphone cameras has been challenging to develop due to the complexity and size of developing modules that must fit in the very limited space of today’s smartphones.”

Overall I certainly can’t wait to get my hands on the LG G4 and it looks like I’m not the only one. As always the full press release is below. Are you excited? Let me know your thoughts below.

    Is that the same IMX240 sensor found in Galaxy Note 4 and S6 with a different lens configuration or its the new “IMX230 16MP brother”? And if they are comparing it to G3 camera that means it should keep OIS – that’s important too. And what about 4k HDR video can it handle that?
