While LG scrambles to reboot its flagship program, the company has announced a new mid-range device in Korea with the LG X4 Plus. At first glance, the device may not appear to be all that special, but it has some nifty tricks up its sleeves.
Starting off with the specs, the X4 Plus has a 5.3-inch display with a 720p resolution and a standard 16:9 aspect ratio. Powering the device is the Snapdragon 425 SoC, which has been coupled with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage.
The cameras for the X4 Plus are also pretty basic, as the device features a 5MP wide-angle selfie camera, and a standard 13MP rear-facing camera. The device also packs a 3,000mAh battery and somewhat surprisingly runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and not Android Oreo.
As for the fun offered by the X4 Plus, the device is MIL-STD-810G certified, meaning that it is built to withstand the elements, including impact, temperature variation, humidity, and more. Additionally, LG has included a Hi-Fi DAC which will help you experience the best tunes when you’re out on a hike. On top of that, LG has included an FM radio in case you need to check up on the ball game or listen to an emergency broadcast.
Finally, the LG X4 Plus has LG Pay onboard, making it easy for you to quickly make payments on the go, without worrying about your wallet. Pricing for the device starts around $280, but there is no mention of whether this will make its way to other regions in the world.
