LG’s G4 is amongst the world’s most powerful smarphones, so unsurprisingly it sports a relatively high price tag. And now details about an affordable alternative known as the G4 S have emerged, indicating that this mid range sibling will be a relatively impressive device, in spite of its position in the market.
TechRadar reports that the G4 S will come with a 5.2 inch display using a 1080p resolution, while the processor will be an octa-core model, clocked at 1.4GHz.
The standard G4 only has a hexacore chipset, but crucially this is one of Qualcomm’s quicker processors. The G4 S will also have much less RAM, at only 1.4GB, which is an unusual amount in its own right.
The biggest issue that the G4 S may face when winning over customers is the amount of onboard storage it offers, with early benchmark figures suggesting it has just 3.5GB available to users.
Hopefully, it will feature a microSD card slot like its big brother, in order to overcome this limitation and extend its appeal to people who want to store lots of apps, pictures and videos on their LG smartphone handset.
