The LG G4, which is set to be officially unveiled on April 28, might not sell better than its predecessor, the G3, according to a Korean analyst from Seoul-based IBK Investment & Securities. It’s worth mentioning that the South Korean company has sold 10 million units of the G3 since it was released last May.
As per the analyst, although the G4 is an impressive product, it will face stiff competition from Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, which have already taken the market by storm. “Market conditions will not be favorable,” he said.
Another concerning factor is that the G4 is reportedly powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 chipset, instead of the the company’s flagship Snapdragon 810 chipset.
