Flagship often end up either getting compacted with reduced specs or supersized with some extra goodies. Today we have the former with respect to the LG G4, in Europe at least.
The LG G4c can now be purchased in the Netherlands through the retailer BelSimpel for €248 and in Italy through Stockisti for €249. In the UK, it is up for pre-order through Handtec and Carphone Warhouse for £179.99.
That pricing translates to around $275-$280 USD. For this you get:
- 5″ 720p IPS LCD display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC (Quad-core, 1.2 GHz, Adreno 306 GPU)
- 1 GB of RAM
- 8 MP rear (sans the OIS, laser focus, and color-spectrum sensor from the G4) and 5 MP front cameras
- 2,540 mAh battery (removable)
- MicroSD card support
- Android 5.0 Lollipop
The G4c takes a lot of design cues from its big brother, such as the textured back cover and even that subtle curve to the phone. It doesn’t appear there’s an option for leather like with the G4, which could be attributed to the higher manufacturing effort. Available colors for the G4c are metallic grey, white, or gold.
There is no word on availability of the G4c in the US. Would you like to see the G4c make its way inland or does it make too many compromises?
