LG G4c goes on sale in Europe
Back in mid-May, LG announced its mid-range G4c smartphone alongside its G4 Stylus, which went on sale in parts of the world last week. From today, the LG G4c is now also available in parts of Europe.
The mid-range handset has gone on sale in the Netherlands through retailer BelSimpel for €248 and through Italy’s Stockisti for €249. The smartphone can be pre-ordered in the UK too, through retailers including Handtec and Carphone Warehouse for £179.99. LG is marketing the G4c as a compact smartphone, changing the G4 flagship’s “see the great, feel the great” slogan to “see the great, feel the compact.”
The LG G4c shares aesthetic design similarities with its plastic flagship brother, but features much more mid-range specifications. The smartphone is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 SoC, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage with a microSD slot, an 8MP rear and 5MP front camera combination, LTE data, and a 2,540mAh removable battery. Sadly, there’s no laser auto-focus option for the rear camera on this model. Despite being marketed as a compact smartphone, the LG G4c features a 5-inch, 720p display with a similar slight curve to the high-end G4.
Although the handset may feature mid-range hardware, LG has taken across a few of its premium software features to the smartphone, including Knock Code, Gesture Shot and Glance View. Android 5.0 Lollipop is installed out of the box.
Other European countries are likely to follow suite rather quickly, but LG hasn’t given out any details about a possible US rollout. We’ll keep you posted.
