On April 28th, 2015, LG will be unveiling its new flagship smartphone, the G4. From the teasers that have been released by the company so far, it’s clear that one of the primary focuses of the new phone is its camera. LG says it will have an f/1.8 lens, excellent color accuracy, and full manual controls for advanced shooting.

Now, in a new teaser, LG is offering a closer glimpse at what the phone’s camera can do. First, the camera will have a Manual Mode that lets you set shutter speed, ISO, and white balance for each shot.
