LG confirms G4 camera ahead of Samsung Galaxy S6 launch

LG Innotek confirms the G4 flagship will come with a 16MP camera

LG has confirmed the camera of its upcoming flagship less than 24 hours before the rivalling Samsung Galaxy S6 goes on sale in Australia.

The upcoming LG G4 flagship will come with a 16 megapixel rear camera and will likely come with an 8 megapixel front facing camera.

The rear camera has an aperture of f/1.8, which one-ups the f/1.9 aperture of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

Wider apertures improve the quality of photos taken at night and help eliminate blur in action shots. The G4's camera will take in up to 80 per cent more light than that of the year-old G3, claims LG Innotek.

The camera module has been developed by LG Innotek and it will be debuted at the global launch of the LG G4 on 28 April.

Mass production of the camera module started this week in preparation of the G4’s global launch.

The upcoming LG flagship could come with an 8-megapixel front facing camera. LG Innotek has developed an 8-megapixel ‘selfie’ camera, which is its highest resolution front camera to date.

The revelation comes less than 24 hours before Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 flagships go on sale in Australia.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
