LG is yet to make official a cheaper version of its 2015 flagship smartphone, the G4. That hasn’t stopped the company’s partners in Germany and the Netherlands from listing the device on their online shopping platforms. Expected to cost around $338, the LG G4c not only drops the leather stitching of its beefier sibling but also leaves us wondering why LG simply won’t brand it G4s (no relation to that global security brand).
The G4c packs a smaller 5 inch (yep, that’s small today) 720p display (294 ppi), 1 GB RAM, 8 GB onboard storage, a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 chip, a 2540 mAh battery, an 8 megapixel back camera (5 MP at the front) and runs on Android 5.0 with the UX 4.0 on top.
By comparison, its beefier sibling has a bigger 5.5 inch Quad HD display (with an overkill 538 ppi), 3 GB RAM, 32 GB onboard storage, the new hexacore Snapdragon 808, a 3000 mAh battery (2900 mAh on some carrier variants) and runs on the latest Android 5.1 update. The 8 MP camera module at the back of the G4c is what the G4 has as its selfie camera while the main camera which has received fair reviews is a 16 MP sensor.
We expect LG to make the G4c official any time soon probably under a different name as well.
