Based on the specifications LG has already confirmed and a few unofficial leaks, we know the company’s upcoming G4 is going to be pretty special. If taking great photos is important to you, it could well be your next upgrade.

The photographs below were all taken with the G4’s new “professional grade” camera, which has a 16-megapixel sensor and f/1.8 aperture — and they are jaw-droppingly good.

The images were shot by professional photographer Colby Brown, a landscape, travel, and humanitarian photographer.

In the promotional video blow, Brown explains how things like a manual mode that can control white balance, ISO, and shutter speed, and an aperture that allows for great photos in low light, are incredibly important to his work.

Of course, LG’s new G4 will have both of these things, and these sample images suggest it’s going to be one of the most impressive smartphone cameras yet.

The G4 will get its official unveiling in New York on April 28. Until then, we can likely look forward to more teasers from LG.
