LG launches new mid-range handset


Smaller sibling” of the LG G4 will go on sale in the UK next month

LG has announced a new mid-range handset that will begin shipping in the UK next month.

The LG G4c is described as the “smaller sibling” to its latest premium, the LG G4, which goes on sale next week.

It has a five-inch display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 8MP rear camera/5MP front-facing, 8GB internal memory, 1GB RAM and a removable 2540mAh battery. The handset will run the latest version of Google’s mobile OS, Android Lollipop 5.0.

It is described as “price competitive” by the Korean manufacturer but pricing will not be confirmed until launch.

“The G4c is a perfect example of what we mean by a premium smartphone experience without a premium price,” said LG Electronics Mobile Communications president and chief executive officer Juno Cho.

“We are committed to offering consumers in fast-growing markets LG devices that not only deliver performance, but also look good while doing so. The G4c will surpass customers’ expectations of what an LG phone should be.”
