LG G2 Supports 4K Gaming *and* Wireless Streaming of the Footage

By Gary Cutlack on at

The new, Snapdragon 800-powered LG G2 has one surprise feature hidden away inside its cutting-edge core; the ability to render games at 4K resolution and wirelessly stream the footage of you shooting/driving things to a 4K-ready TV. How ridiculously powerful.

According to Wired, LG was seen demonstrating Epic game Citadel on the G2 at the IFA tech event, which is a tech demo designed to show off the power of its Unreal engine on mobile devices. LG's people said 4K streaming of phone footage is a feature set to arrive inside its 2014 Ultra HD TV range.

Which is doubly good news for phone fans, as it means the rumoured LG-made Nexus 5 (that may have been spotted earlier today) may also come 4K support built in. News that may help swing the purchase of another new telly, even though you've just bought a new telly. [Wired]
