We’ve got just over a week before LG officially announces the LG G4, but the question is already being asked: Will the LG G4 sell as well as the LG G3? According to Korean analyst, IBK Investment & Securities, the answer is “No”. This answer is largely driven by the resurgent success of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge who says will create market conditions which “will not be favorable” for the LG G4, who LG is hoping will sell the same number of handsets as the LG G3, estimated to be around 10 million.

Another source has said that the recent rumours that the LG G4 will be powered be a Snapdragon 808 instead of a Snapdragon 810 will be an issue if true as it is losing “a selling point for LG”. And as you can imagine, anything that LG can claw back from the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge is going to be an important differentiator come April 28th, but we’ll have to see if LG has anything else hidden up their sleeves.

What do you think about the LG G4 not selling as well as the LG G3? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    I agree that the LG G4 will not be a great seller. There are to many top phones that have come out recently. The HTC One M9, the, Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have taken many people in the market for a flagship phone off the table. When the G3 came out the HTC One M8 and the Samsung Galaxy S5 had been out for a while giving the G3 a more lucrative buyer market available. Also if the reports of LG using the 808 processor instead of the 810 will be detrimental.
    However; there will still be LG loyalists that will buy the G4, and those who are dissatisfied with Samsung, Apple, and HTC.
