Late last month, LG announced the G4, its flagship Android smartphone for 2015. The South Korean technology conglomerate today introduces two new smartphones in its G4 lineup: the LG G4 Stylus and LG G4c. Both the smartphones are stripped version of the flagship G4 and pack in some unique set of features.
The LG G4 Stylus flaunts a ‘Rubberdium Stylus’ which will allow users to draw and take notes on the device. The phone seems to be aimed at Samsung Note phablet users. The LG G4c, on the other hand, is a more affordable variant of the G4 aimed at the growing low-tier smartphone market.
As for the specifications, the G4 Stylus sports a 5.7-inch HD display. The LTE-capable variant of the Stylus is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core chipset of an unspecified brand whereas the 3G variant comes with a 1.4GHz octa-core processor. Both the variants come coupled with 1GB RAM and 8 gigs of internal storage which can be expanded using a microSD card.
The LTE counterpart ships with a 13-megapixel shooter while the 3G variant offers an 8-megapixel sensor at the back. Both the versions have a 5-megapixel shooter upfront. On the battery side, the phone comes bundled with a 3,000mAh removable cell. The G4 Stylus ships in two colors: metallic silver and floral white.
On the software side, the device is running Android 5.0 Lollipop. Other features include a Stylus Pen, Laser Auto Focus, Gesture Shot, Glance View, and Knock Code.
The LG G4c, on the other hand, sports 5-inch IPS display with 720p pixels resolution. It is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core of an unspecified brand coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8 gigs of expandable internal storage.
Other features of the handset include an 8-megapixel shooter at the back and a 5-megapixel sensor upfront. The device supports LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi and other standard connectivity options. Powered by a 2,540mAh battery, the G4c ships in three color variants: metallic gray, ceramic white, and shiny gold. On the software front, the G4c runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, and also offers features such as Gesture Shot, Glance View, and Knock Code.
The company says that both the phones will begin shipping to retailers around the world over the next few weeks. It didn’t have any price information to share at the moment.
