LG has today unveiled a mid-ranged version of the LG G4, the LG G4 Beat, a mid-range device aimed at offering “the best features and functions of the LG G4, delivering value without compromising performance or usability.”
Sporting a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS Display that LG claim is clearer, sharper, and more responsive than anything offered by LG in this category, the device looks almost identical to the LG G4. Under the hood however is where the differences are apparent.
The LG G4 Beat is powered by a 1.5GHz Snapdrafon 615 with integrated 4G, supported by 1.5GB RAM. For a mid-range device however, it packs quite the punch.
Where the LG G4 Beat shines however is the camera with LG has pulled out all the stops for. It’s not quite the 16 megapixel sensor in the LG G4, but the 8 megapixel snapper comes with the same features as its older brother, such as LG’s Colour Spectrum Sensor for more natural colours and it has a laser autofocus and manual mode. The front facing snapper is also quite impressive at 5 megapixels with LG’s Gesture Shot.
It’ll also come with 8GB of internal storage and Android Lollipop out of the box.
As for pricing and availability, there’s currently no word on how much it’ll cost, but it will be launching later this month in “key markets” in Europe and Latin America, with France, Germany, and Brazil included in that, it’ll then roll out in other markets later in the year.
