LG tonight expanded its family of G4 smartphones by introducing the G4 Beat. The LG G4 Beat sits at the upper part of the mid-range or lower part of the high-end tier, depending on how you feel, by offering a 5.2-inch 1920×1080 display and octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor.
The G4 Beat also packs a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for your selfie needs, and around back is a 8-megapixel camera (13-megapixel in Latin America). The rear camera also has a color spectrum sensor and laser auto focus, and when you’re feeling like diving deep into the settings of your shooter, you can use Expert Mode to adjust things like shutter speed, ISO, and color temperature.
Rounding out the LG G4 Beat’s spec list is 8GB of storage, 1.5GB of RAM, and a removable 2300mAh battery. The G4 Beat runs Android 5.1.1 out of the box.
LG says that the G4 Beat will launch first in “key markets” in Europe and Latin America like France, Germany, and Brazil, followed by releases in Canada, India, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, and Turkey. With its spec list, the G4 Beat slots into the middle of the G4 family, offering an affordable alternative to the flagship G4 that’s also more manageable that the 5.7-inch G4 Stylus.
