Following the announcement of its G4 flagship, LG is announcing lower-cost derivatives in order to turn the G4 into its own family of smartphones starting with the G4c. Pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed.
The G4c features a smaller 5.0-inch display at a lower 720p HD resolution with a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor at 1.4 GHz with 1 GB of RAM. The phone also includes an 8-megapixel main camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 2,450mAh battery and the usual complement of onboard radios, such as LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC and GPS with GLONASS support. The LG G4c runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and includes LG’s user interface functionality, such as Knock On, Knock Code, Quick Memo, and QSlide.
In related news, LG has also officially announced the forthcoming launch of the G4 Stylus, which Boost Mobile and T-Mobile will be releasing as the LG G Stylo with slightly different specifications. T-Mobile’s version will feature a 13-megapixel main camera with 16GB of internal memory and 2GB of RAM, while Boost Mobile’s version will feature an 8-megapixel camera with 8GB of internal memory and 1.5GB of RAM. The phones are otherwise identical with a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 processor and a 5.7-inch 720p HD display with included stylus.
