LG’s flagship, the G4 has been given the royal teardown by the boys and girls at iFixit for a closer at what’s inside so let’s see what lies within this beast.
Easy access to the internals is granted with the quick removal of the back panel and the 3000mAh battery beneath it. A few screws later and the motherboard is revealed and all of its delicious hardware glory.
Housed on one side is the Hexa-Core, 1.8 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SOC which is layered beneath the 3GB of Samsung K3QF6F60AM-QGCF LPDDR3 RAM. Joining the processor and RAM is the 32GB of Toshiba THGBMFG8C4LBAIR NAND Flash, Broadcom BCM4339HKUBG 5G WiFi Client a duo power management IC’s and a Qualcomm WTR3925 LTE Transceiver.
On the backside of the motherboard is the NXP 47883 NFC Controller, Qualcomm WCD9330 Audio Codec and SlimPort ANX7816 Ultra-HD Transmitter. Though not as cool and sexy as the processor these chips allow the G4 to stay on par with it’s competitors.
For those who don’t remember or are curious, the LG G4 has some really nice specs for going toe to toe against the big boys with. Starting with the 5.5” IPS “Quantum” display boasting an insane 2560×1440 and 538ppi. The muscle is provided by a 6-core, 1.8 GHz, 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor which might seem inadequate in a world of octa-core processors. The G4 is less about size and more about how that power is used though.
