LG has just taken the curtains off a new mid-range Android smartphone – the LG G4 Beat that is powered by none other than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor.
Like what the LG G3 Beat, that was launched almost exactly a year ago, is to the LG G3, the G4 Beat (or G4s for Europe region) is a mid-range variant of the G4 that features similar premium design and superior features, with a budget price. The LG G4 Beat features a modest 5.2” Full HD IPS display, and is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.
While the camera sensor is smaller than the flagship G4 (8MP shooter), it still packs the best LG has got to offer such as LG’s exclusive Colour Spectrum Sensor and Laser Auto Focus. There is also manual mode on board for the savvy users, “allowing full creative control over every detail in each shot”. The front has a 5MP camera with Gesture Interval Shot for the perfect selfie.
Other specs on the LG G4 Beat include LTE connectivity, 2300mAh removable, NFC, and runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box. Available in metallic silver, ceramic white or shiny gold, the device will be launched this month in “key markets” such as Europe and Latin America, before rolling out globally in markets such as Canada, India, Russia, Singapore, South Africa and Turkey, among others. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that it will come to Malaysia too with an attractive price tag.
