Just after announcing the 2018 Edition of K8 and K10, LG has launched a mid-range smartphone LG X4 in Korea. It has a 5.3-inch HD display and powered by the Snapdragon 425 Processor clocked at 1.4GHz with 2GB of RAM. In terms of design, It has a plastic back with anti-slip patterns and comes with the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. While the usual smartphone power button is mounted either on the top or sides of the frame, the power button of LG X4 is integrated into the fingerprint scanner. You can also use the fingerprint scanner to take selfies or to take screenshots. It still runs on Android Nougat instead of the latest Android Oreo.
The key highlight of this device is the HD DMB TV. The Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB) feature allows you to watch free TV channels without Internet or Data. This feature is very useful where there is no Internet connectivity or the data charges are high. The internal storage offered is 16GB and that can be further expanded up to 2TB using a microSD card. For photography, it has an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front camera. Other key specifications are 3000mAh battery, Bluetooth, WiFi n, GPS, NFC, and FM Radio. It also supports LG Pay lets you make wireless payments using NFC.
The LG X4 is offered in two colors – Black & Gold and priced at 297,000 won (Approx. ₹17,800). As of now, you can buy this device only in Korea through three domestic telecom operators – SKT, KT, and LG U+ starting 3rd March 2018.
