LG has introduced metallic color variants for its latest LG G4 which is priced at Rs 40,000 in India. The device will now be available in Titanium Black and Gold versions. Initially launched in the leather back and ceramic white variants, the company decided to launch the smartphone in the metallic variant after the positive response the G4 reportedly received from consumers.
The LG G4 metallic color variant features identical specifications as the original G4. The G4 sports a 5.5-inch display with 2560 x 1440 pixels of resolution, same as its predecessor. However, it now adds some technical changes like the Quantum IPS panel that is 25 percent brighter, with 50 percent better contrast and 20 percent better colour accuracy.
The screen is also said to be 11 percent more efficient than the display fitted into the G3. The device boasts of Slim Arc design, which means it has a slight curve, but not as much as the G Flex. This subtle curve will ensure the display is less likely to break upon fall.
It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. It will be available with 32GB onboard storage, expandable via microSD card slot up to 128GB. On the camera front, the G4 comes with a new 16-megapixel sensor with f/1.8 lens and improved image stabilisation.
The device runs Android 5.1 Lollipop along with a layer of LG’s custom interface. It uses something that LG calls ‘human-centric UX’ 4.0, promising a more intuitive experience. It offers features like Quick Shot that allows taking pictures even without opening the camera app and simply double tapping on the rear key even when the display is off. A 3,000mAh removable battery completes the package.
Deepak Jasrotia, Business Head, LG Mobiles India, said, "We have always believed in offering only those products to our consumers that complement their style in making a statement. The G4’s leather back was a step in that direction and we’ve taken it to the next step with this metallic variant of G4. The G4 is our most ambitious product of 2015 and we hope the consumers will continue to show their love for this smartphone, now in an all-new metallic avatar."
