New Delhi: After launching its LG G4 smartphone recently, LG has launched another variant of the flagship device- the LG G4 Beat- that retains some of the features and functions of the original G4. Following which, LG have confirmed that a more global roll out will commence in due course and will include Canada, India, Russia, Singapore, South Africa and Turkey.
The 4G-capable G4 Beat will come with Android Lollipop 5.1.1 and has an 8-core Snapdragon 615 processor with 1.5 GB of RAM and 8 GB of local storage. Its 5.2-inch 1080p display, a tad smaller than the G4’s 5.5-inch Quad HD screen, tops out at an impressive pixel density of 423 ppi.
Prices and details of availability will be announced locally at the time of launch.
The LG G4 Stylus features a 5.7-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels of resolution. It also features onboard storage of 8GB which is further expandable via microSD card.
In most regions, the device will use an 8MP rear snapper with Color Spectrum Sensor and Laser Auto Focus, while select Latin America markets will get a variant with 13MP camera. The device is backed by a 3000mAh removable battery. Both versions will have a 5MP front-facing camera, and the connectivity options will include Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, NFC, 3G, and 4G LTE. “Our goal with the LG G4 Beat was to create a phone that was not only well- balanced in terms of display, camera, performance and design but delivered terrific value and satisfaction”, said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
The LG G4 Beat is set to arrive in parts of Europe and Latin America – including Germany, France and Brazil – in July 2015 before a global rollout.
