LG Electronics introduced a new smartphone under its X series, the LG X4 in South Korea. Following the debut of the LG X4+ earlier this year, the company has released the new LG X smartphone with similar features including LG Pay.
The new LG X4 features a 5.3-inch HD IPS display with 1280 x 720 pixel resolution. The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 425 chipset clocked at 1.4GHz and paired with Adreno 308 GPU. The phone carries just 2GB LPDDR3 RAM and 16GB of eMMC internal storage. The storage can be further expanded up to 2TB via microSD card.
On the software front, the LG X4 runs a more than a year old Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS. In terms of camera, the phone sports an 8-megapixel primary camera with LED flash. Up front, it features a 5-megapixel unit for selfies and video call. The LG X4 has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor which lets a user take selfies by tapping into it. Further, they can also make payment via LG Pay by using the fingerprint reader. Users can also pay it by entering their password instead.
The LG X4 carries a standard 3000mAh battery. Connectivity options on the phone include- Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, Micro-USB port for charging, NFC, and FM Radio. The phone measures 148.6 x 75.1 x 8.6mm and weigh 164 grams. The new LG X4 will come in two colour options- Black and Gold.
As for the pricing, LG has announced the new X series smartphone for a price at 297,000 Won (roughly Rs 17,780). The device is already available for purchase on three major outlets in Korea. There is no word yet about its availability in India. But at that price point, it will be a very tough sell as the competition is very stiff around the Rs 15,000 mark in India with brands offering much superior hardware and features.
