The LG G3 is still doing well and sits among the current crop of flagships as a true competitor with some of the best specs and a slick design too. However, the smartphone world is always looking forward and so LG knows that it needs to build on the G3's momentum. The G4 is obviously still in development, but it was now be met with huge expectations when it lands next year, and seems LG is upping the ante again.The Korean company is reported to be working on a new camera module that would significantly bump the tech from the G3. The new rear snapper will be a 20.7-megapixel sensor with improved Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The company's LG Innotek division has already showed off the technology at the 2014 Korea Electronics Show (KES), and while the company has not said which handset this will be available in, it seems common sense for it to arrive on the G4. However, while I expect this module to come to the LG G4, I expect it to debut on another smartphone before that. Maybe the third iteration of the G Pro due to be launched at MWC in March, or possibly on a dedicated LG camera device, a-la the HTC Desire EYE. The module comes with more than just an upped megapixel count. The OIS feature has been improved the correction angle to 0.7 as opposed to the O.5 angle on the LG G3, meaning the lens will deal with unwanted movements more competently.
