Smartphone vendors have long relied on camera improvements to help convince users to upgrade, and the G4 and Galaxy S6 are no different. The main cameras on both models have a 16 megapixel resolution. And features such as optical image stabilization help improve performance in low-light conditions. The Galaxy S6 has a 5 megapixel front camera and the G4 has an 8 megapixel version.
It seems the G4 will be the cheaper of the two. The smartphone will cost from £500 (US$765) including tax and without a contract, compared to £600 for the 32GB version of the Galaxy S6 when buying it from Samsung. The G4 will start its global rollout on Wednesday in Korea and is expected to go on sale in Europe and the U.S. at the end of May.
