LG announces massive rollout of G4 smartphone; here's where you can get it

LG will now finally start selling G4 outside of its home country of South Korea -- but where?

LG Electronics is rolling out its new leather-encased smartphones in a number of critical new markets, including Hong Kong, Turkey, Russia, and Singapore -- although there's still no word on when it will be coming elsewhere in the world.

LG indicated that the G4, available now in South Korea where LG is based, will "eventually" be made available to Europe, North America, and the rest of the world, but there was no firm date on when that would happen, according to a Design & Trend report.

The G4 will have a back cover with handcraft leather, a Quad HD display that measures 5.5 inches, 3 gigabytes of RAM, a 16-megapixel camera in the back and an 8-megapixel camera in the front, and a six-core Snap Dragon 808 processor, according to the report.

The phone earned some rave reviews, although there is some concern about the battery life of the device and the feeling that it may be too similar to its predecessor, the G3.

LG G4 is an Android smartphone that was first unveiled on April 28 and released in South Korea the following day. It is primarily an update to the G3, with changes to its design, camera, and the display. It has so far received positive reviews for its upgrades, although some have questioned whether it made enough changes from the G3 to make it a force to be reckoned with against its competitors.

The G3 was released in South Korea on May 28, 2014, and it was a successor to the prior year's G2. It built on the design elements of the G2, including thin screen bezels and rear-mounted volume and power buttons. It was the first from a big manufacturer to use a quad HD display. Its metallic skin was also popular, giving it a sleek appearance.
