South Korea is about to get a new color variant for the LG G4: White Gold. While the coloring may be new, it's still the same hardware internals.

Depending on your preferred company of choice, proper priority and device diplomacy may be extended to either (a) the place/s any given product is most popular in, or (b) a place where the manufacturer wants to “test the waters”, or (c) the manufacturer’s home territory. For those inclined to support LG or Samsung sublime, South Korea is typically home to the best in show. Indeed the country has seen products like the Urbane LTE or Galaxy Round. This time however, it’s just a color variant that’s sound.

LG has announced it will be releasing a White Gold edition of its flagship G4. The device, which is targeting women and the younger crowd according to the OEM, features a white front and back, with a gold colored plastic frame. The device will retail for 699,600 Won ($577). Unlike last year which saw LG release a Korea-only G3 with slightly higher specs, this offering has the exact same internals as the “standard” G4.

There is no word as-of-yet regarding an international release of the White Gold G4 color variant, however given that the hardware itself is now getting relatively “long in the tooth” it wouldn’t be surprising if the stellar shade is strictly a Korean-only affair. For those that have been keeping tabs, LG has also released a black leather variant of its new V10, however the device is currently only available in Asia.

Those hoping for some real gold in their LG ware might want to save up for the Luxe-uriously expensive Urbane limited edition.
