LG G4 Beat brings a familiar smartphone with mid-range specs

LG has announced a new smartphone as part of the LG G4 family. It’s the LG G4 Beat, and while it may be natural to assume an LG G4 phone would at least be on-par with the original, it’s not.

This is a mid-range darling that borrows its older and bigger brother’s good looks, but doesn’t quite offer up the same punch. That said, it still is a very capable smartphone, and its reduced price tag should make up for its shortcomings in comparison to the LG G4. Here’s what you’re getting:

  • Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 615 Processor
  • Display: 5.2-inch Full HD IPS LCD (1920 x 1080, 423ppi)
  • Memory: 8GB eMMC ROM / 1.5GB RAM
  • Camera: Rear 8MP LDAF (13MP in Latin America) / Front 5MP
  • Battery: 2,300mAh (removable)
  • Operating System: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
  • Size: 142.7 x 72.6 x 9.85mm
  • Weight: 139g
  • Network: 4G LTE / HSPA+ 42.2Mbps (3G)
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b, g, n / Bluetooth 4.1 / NFC / A-GPS / Glonass / USB 2.0
  • Colors: Metallic Silver / Ceramic White / Shiny Gold
  • Other: In-Cell Touch / Color Spectrum Sensor / Gesture Interval Shot / Full HD 1080p Video

LG says this thing will be out as soon as this month starting in Europe and Latin America, including France, Germany and Brazil. Beyond that, it’ll roll out globally to Canada, India, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey and more in the weeks to follow.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
