With LG’s newest flagship, the LG G4, already rolling out to the global market, the Korean gadget manufacturers want to make sure there are mid-tier options available for those who will not be able to reach the LG G4’s price point – what with that premium leather at the back. So the flagship will be rolling with the LG G4 Stylus and the LG G4c, different midrange options for different types of users.


G4_Stylus

The LG G4 Stylus – like its predecessor, the LG G3 stylus – moves towards the phablet side of things, with its rubber stylus (hence the name) and a slightly bigger 5.7-inch HD (720p) screen. The phone is 4G LTE capable and will be powered by a 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, all running on Android 5.0 Lollipop. The phone also has a 13MP/5MP camera combo and a 3,000mAh battery keeps all the lights on. Interestingly, it will be called the “LG G4 Stylo” in North America.

G4c

The LG G4c — previously leaked here — is the more compact of the two mid-tier alternatives, sporting a handier 5-inch HD (720p) screen. The processor, RAM, and internal storage specs are the same – and you can expand the latter through microSD. Both devices will take on the patented LG UI features – Knock On, Knock Code, Gesture Shot, and the famous rear placement of the buttons.

No idea on the pricing yet, but they should be relatively cheaper than the flagship. The devices will ship to global markets together with the LG G4.
