LG G4 proves more important than the LG G3 Pro as the latter gets cancelled

The LG G4 is still several months away from launch, but apparently LG have decided that it’s already time to focus on the smartphone and leave some of their other projects behind. Word on the street is that the tech giant is abandoning the G Pro series in order to pour all its resources into the upcoming flagship. In other words, the LG G3 Pro is unlikely to see the light of day anymore. The device was meant to make its way to the market in just a matter of months and potentially serve as a competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 due to its similar screen size. However, it was unlikely that LG’s offering would have been seen as a good alternative to the highly acclaimed phablet, which is why the company ultimately decided that it should focus on the LG G4 instead.

Furthermore, the G Pro Series effectively became obsolete once the LG G3 launched. The company’s flagship for 2014 features a very impressive 5.5-inch display that’s pretty much up to par with the one featured on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Presumably, the G3 Pro was meant to come equipped with a 5.9-inch panel of similar resolution, which is not that much bigger all things considered. By comparison, the G2 Pro’s 5.9-inch display was quite a bit larger than the regular G2’s 5.2-inch screen. While having a bigger device made a lot of sense back then, that’s not the case anymore with the arrival of the LG G4.

Rumor has it that the LG G4 might sport an even bigger display than its predecessor which could potentially be very similar if not identical in size to that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. In short, the LG G3 Pro doesn’t serve a purpose anymore if LG already has a good competitor in the form of the LG G4.

    The rumor that lg wants to put a 5.7 inch screen that doesnt make lg a copycat.there are many phones with 5 inch screen ando no one calls them copycats.keep it up LG.

    • Calyptra Nox

      LG is definitely not making copies based on other phones, especially when it comes to the display. The screen on the LG G3 was the absolute best when it came out, so the LG G4 will likely feature a beautiful display as well. Possibly even better than its predecessor’s, if such as thing is even possible….

  • JMG

    Samsung has reach where he is because LG had been sleeping,and didint bother much of the smartphone market in the past..

  • ChadTG

    Not a fan of the entire line going to the 5.5″ plus size screen honestly at 5.5 where the comfort zone ends.. In my opinion they are about to make a mistake by not going with two line ups. There are people who prefer the s5 over Note 4..

  • jese

    They are copy cats there adding a “lg pen” 5.7 in screen how is that not a copy of note 4
