Another LG G4 variant has arrived.
The LG G4 Beat was just introduced by LG as a mid-range version of its G4 flagship. The G4 Beat has a 5.2-inch 1920x1080 display, which is slightly smaller and lower-res than the G4’s 5.5-inch 2560x1440 screen. The G4 Beat also has an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, compared to the G4’s beefier hexa-core Snapdragon 808 chip.
Also included with the new LG G4 Beat is 8GB of storage, 1.5GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera (13-megapixel in Latin America), a 5-megapixel front camera, a 2300mAh removable battery, and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. LG is also throwing its own custom user interface, complete with features like Manual Mode that’ll let you change the camera’s ISO, shutter speed, color temperature, and more.
The LG G4 Beat will launch this month in "key markets" in Europe and Latin America like France, Germany, and Brazil, with releases in Canada, India, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, and Turkey to follow.
So now we’ve got the LG G4, LG G4 Beat, LG G4 Stylus, and LG G4c. The G4 Beat slots into the middle of that pack, offering a phone that’s got a design similar to the LG G4 and specs that aren’t quite as high-end, but are still pretty respectable.
