LG is on a roll this week and today, one of their sister companies; LG Innotek announced the camera modules which will be gracing the upcoming LG G4. As teased previously, the main camera has an f1.8 aperture making it one of the widest ones ever on a smartphone.

The main camera on the back of the LG G4 will be a 16MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization. Sounds like LG has wrapped up a pretty solid package for the LG G4 and this new sensor paired up with the new camera software inside LG UX 4.0, LG might just be able to match the camera performance on Samsung's Galaxy S6.

Besides that, alongside this new 16MP sensor, LG Innotek also unveiled a new 8MP front facing camera which is not only small but it also features a 0.11mm thin IR filter which is about 50% smaller than IR filters from competitors. Well if you don't know a thing about cameras, IR filters are basically a filter which sifts out heat/bright objects like the sun.

LG says that they will start mass producing these new camera modules later this week at their plant and as for the LG G4, we now know a little bit more about it's camera. For a recap, the LG G4 will debut on April 28 in 7 countries worldwide and it'll feature a new 5.5" Quad HD display, the Snapdragon 810 CPU and somehow a leather back too.

Also, later this week LG is also planning to give out 4000 LG G4's for fans to try out all the goodness. Find out more about this offer here
