LG's Mid-Range Game Is Strong

That’s why I’m happy to announce the official title of the new LG mid-ranger is the G4 Beat. 

Basically, we’ve known for a while that LG was producing a new mid-range handset, what the leaks have been calling the LG G4S. Honestly, that’s a really stupid thing to call a mid-ranger considering that the G4 is the flagship, and all of its high end variants have different letters or numbers attached to it. So really, it’s quite confusing. That’s why I’m happy to announce the official title of the new LG mid-ranger is the G4 Beat.

The specs were as we expected, including a 5.2-inch screen with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor that speeds along at 1.5GHz and runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

While it’s true that rear snapper is only 8 megapixels, it’s a pimped out 8 megapixels. It has LG’s Color Spectrum Sensor that allows for more natural colors, alongside a laser autofocus and manual mode. 

Also under the hood is 8GB of internal storage which is quite a bit for a mid-ranger, alongside 1.5GB of RAM and a very impressive 2300mAh battery, which the kids at home will be thankful for.

Really though, it’s the year of the camera. While it’s true that rear snapper is only 8 megapixels, it’s a pimped out 8 megapixels. It has LG’s Color Spectrum Sensor that allows for more natural colors, alongside a laser autofocus and manual mode.

The front-facing shooter has 5 megapixels to be proud of, and generates four consecutive shots with one single hand gesture, thanks to LG’s Gesture Interval Shot mode.

The handset supports 4G and is available in metallic silver, ceramic white or shiny gold, and basically look like a more plastic version of the LG G4.

Obviously, no price has been released just yet, but we are expecting it to hit the shelves in Europe and South America this month. Once again I will repeat that this is no flagship, despite it’s status as the LG G4S during production.

More importantly though, LG came very strong to this year’s mid-range game.
