LG confirms "groundbreaking" camera for the LG G4

LG's in-house components manufacturer, LG Innotek, has announced the groundbreaking new 16MP camera module to be used in the upcoming LG G4. The module is set to be unveiled later this month.

According to KoreaITtimes, The camera will have a f/1.8 aperture, which means it will technically be more capable of letting more light into the sensor and therefore work better in low-light conditions than the Samsung Galaxy S6, which has a f/1.9 aperture. Thanks to the aperture, the LG G4 camera will also reportedly be capable of letting in 80 percent more light than that on the LG G3.

The LG G4 is also expected to feature a high-end 8MP front camera. To improve the color accuracy of images taken with the front camera, LG Innotek has developed an ultra-thin IR filter, which at 0.11mm is around half as thin as those on rival phones.

LG Innotek is responsible for many of the cutting-edge technologies in LG products, such as the laser autofocus which featured in last year's LG G3 (a feature that's also expected to be included in the LG G4 camera).

The LG G4 will be unveiled April 28, and we'll reporting from the event in London as things unfold.

We've been impressed by LG's camera offerings in the past, and based on what we've heard think that the LG G4 camera has the potential to become one of the best on the market. The big question is, can it top the Galaxy S6 camera? Place your bets and give your thoughts in the comments below.
