In an recent news conference, the head of LG's mobile division, Cho Juno, said that the company is aiming for a design overhaul on its upcoming G4 handset.

LG notably opted not to announce the next entry into its G series at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week, but it sounds like the company has big plans for an overhaul of the design and user experience of its upcoming G4 flagship. The Korea Times reports:

LG said the G4 will be radically different from the G3. It will have major overhaul in surface design and deliver significant improvements in user-experience (UX).

"We will announce LG UX 4.0 before announcing the LG G4. I think it is simply the best and the issue is how to best fit the new UX system into the G4 smartphone," Cho told reporters.

Juno also said that LG is looking to push production of its own processors to power future devices, reducing its current dependence on chip offerings from Qualcomm. This is something LG has already taken a shot at with the release of the G3 Screen in October of last year.

While we don't yet have a launch date for the LG G4, the Korea Times notes that it is expected to be revealed sometime next month. LG previously unveiled the curvaceous G Flex 2 at CES in January, which was the first Android device to carry Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 processor.
