The highly-anticipated LG G4 has finally arrived this week, following months of consistent buzz that persisted even at the Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9's reigning moments. Just like the company's previous releases, the new flagship smartphones makes another mark in history, this time with its camera.

According to Phandroid, the LG G4 is the first smartphone to sport a color spectrum sensor. This technology is responsible for differentiating objects and light, ultimately delivering photos with "better luminance and a superior color reproduction," Phone Arena noted.

In a recent Forbes article, contributor Paul Monckton wrote that the LG G4's camera leaves rivals iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 "outgunned." Apart from the new device's improved optical image stabilization (OIS) and new three-axis stabilization, the author cited its 3,000 mAh removable battery and micro SD slot, features not offered by the current Apple and Samsung flagships.

Monckton expressed, "With the G4, LG has delivered one of the most impressive smartphone camera specifications I've seen."

The LG G4 is specially designed to perform well in low-light conditions. As told by Phone Arena, the device's camera owns a wider aperture, which allows more light reaching the sensor. See it for yourself here.

The new LG flagship specifically owns a f/1.8 16 MP main camera, Pocket-lint reported. The snapper allows users to execute full manual controls and shoot in raw DNG file format. Ultimately, with the device's new camera features, it's capable of bringing in 80% more light and shooting less blur even at high-speed situations, the outlet said.

Some professionally-taken photos through the LG G4 are available here, here and here (via Pocket-lint).

The LG G4, in a very slight curve, comes with a 5.5-inch Quad HD display (2560 x 1440 pixels), Phandroid cited. Under the hood, it houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 coupled by 3 GB of RAM.

The device is offered in six leather options and three plastic back covers -- black, white and gold.

For those wondering about their selfies in an LG G4, its secondary camera captures at a stunning 8 MP resolution, GSMArena listed.

In a recently-updated article, Android Police informed that the LG G4 will be available in five major U.S. carriers, including Verizon (soon), AT&T (soon), T-Mobile (expected late May), Sprint (June) and U.S. Cellular. As of press time, the device is already offered for purchase in Korea, Android Headlines said, for a price of 825,000 won ($768).
