South Korea’s LG Electronics has unveiled two new models of its G4 flagship smartphone on Monday, according to a report from CNET.
Dubbed the G4 Stylus and G4c, the handsets are mostly similar to the G4 that was launched in April. However, the G4 Stylus is a larger variant that comes with a bigger, 5.7-inch screen. It also features a stylus for convenient note taking. In contrast, the G4c is smaller and only has a 5-inch display.
Both models are powered by Android 5.0 Lollipop OS from Google, and they sport a 1.2GHz quad-core LTE chipset. A 3G variant for the G4 Stylus with a 1.4GHz octa-core chipset is also available.
In addition, each unit is equipped with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, while the rear-facing camera is either 8 megapixels or 13 megapixels depending on the model.
“The G4 Stylus and G4c are perfect examples of what we mean by a premium smartphone experience without a premium price,” said Juno Cho, Chief Executive Officer of LG Electronics Mobile Communications.
“We are committed to offering consumers in fast-growing markets LG devices that not only deliver performance, but also look good while doing so,” he added.
The G4 is the successor to the G3, which pushed LG’s smartphone sales to a new record high in Q3 2014. It also helped the company secure its highest share in the North American smartphone market.
Looking ahead, LG Electronics expect to sell 12 million G4 units in total, a rise over the G3’s 10 million units.
