LG recently introduced a new smartphone in South Korea. Dubbed the LG X4+, this isn’t your typical mid-range smartphone – it comes with a 32-bit DAC as well as a rugged design, ideal for those who want the extra protection from accidental damage.
One of the main appeals of the new LG X4+ is its Hi-Fi DAC; it can play 32-bit 192kHz audio. We imagine audiophiles will appreciate the X4+’s focus on audio quality. Interestingly, this phone also supports LG Pay, which makes a lot of sense – the service has been available in South Korea for quite some time now.
Aside from that, the X4+ is MIL-STD-810G certified too. Basically, it can withstand extreme temperatures, a degree of drop protection, as well as humidity resistance. However, it’s worth noting that it doesn’t have IP rating of any kind, so the X4+ is not water- or dust-resistant.
Other specifications of the X4+ are decidedly mid-range. These include a 5.3-inch 720p IPS display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor paired with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, 13MP rear and 5MP front-facing cameras, and a 3,000mAh battery. It also comes with a rear fingerprint sensor and Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
The LG X4+ will be available in South Korea sometime this month in two colours: Moroccan Blue and Lavender Violet. Retailing at 300,000 South Korean won (about RM1,100), it remains to be seen if the X4+ will be available outside of the country.
