LG X4 Smartphone with Android 7.1.2 Nougat & LG Pay Launched in South Korea

LG has launched a new smartphone called LG X4 in the X-series. Just like the earlier launched X-series smartphones, this new smartphone will also be exclusive to South Korea. The LG X4 looks exactly similar to the LG X4+ launched in January this year. Except for the rear camera, the specifications also remain same both the LG X4 devices. The device comes with a metal body and will be available in Black and Gold color options.

On the front is a 5.3-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) display with 16:9 aspect ratio and 2.5D curved glass laid on top. Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 Mobile Platform coupled with Adreno 308 GPU and 2GB of RAM. There is 16GB of internal storage and it can be further expanded using the MicroSD card slot. While the LG X4+ came with a 13MP sensor on the rear, the new LG X4 only offers an 8MP sensor.

For selfies, the device comes with the same 5MP front-facing camera. Instead of the latest Android 8.0 Oreo, the device runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat out of the box. On the rear, the LG X4 also comes with a circular fingerprint sensor. Since it is only limited to South Korea, the LG X4 also supports HD DMB TV for watching live TV without internet. The device also supports LG Pay for making mobile payments.

With all these specifications and features, the LG X4 is backed by a 3,000mAh battery. Connectivity options include 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, GPS, NFC, and MicroUSB Type-C Port. It measures 148.6 x 75.1 x 8.6 mm and weighs 164 grams. The LG X4 is currently available for KRW 297,000 (approx $275 / Rs. 17,850) via three major South Korean carriers.
