LG Adds Smartphone Variants to G4 flagship Series

May 21, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Following the release of its G4 smartphone in Korea and other discrete markets, LG has now included two new additions to the flagship series.

A stylus-packed phablet edition and a cheap and compact budget edition are the two new entries that will append the flagship sales in coming weeks.

Both G4 Stylus and G4c smartphones will arrive slightly degraded from that of the flagship. G4 Stylus edition features a 5.7-inch screen and a Rubberdium Stylus to prop it under the phablet segment.


However, the display has been cut down to a resolution of 720p, leaving behind the QHD display used in G4. The SoC packs a quad-core processor of 1.4GHz, paired with a RAM of 1GB.

While LG puts all it efforts to raise the G4 camera to top notch, they haven’t quite endorsed the same with the Stylus version. An 8MP camera gets featured on the rear for G4 Stylus, while the front shooter is of 5 megapixels.

However, LG will also bring out an LTE edition which will retain the 13MP camera used in the original one. Battery has also been left untouched, with the G4 Stylus packing a net charge of 3,000 mAh.

The G4c is rather a heavily degraded one and will be having its steps aimed at budget customers. The 5-inch display will feature a 720p resolution, while it will be powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, accompanied by a 1GB RAM.

The cameras used are same as of that used for G4 Stylus 3G edition. The device will be made available only as an LTE edition.

LG says in a statement that both of these devices will mould growing markets as the mainstay, by offering ‘premium smartphone experience without a premium price’.

Both the devices will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, with G4 Stylus running a G4-akin skin on top of it. Pricing of the devices is yet to be revealed.
