LG's G4 is Now a Proper Family

By Gary Cutlack on at

LG's G4 has been joined by a couple of alternative models, with the Korean maker announcing the G4 Stylus and G4c today. One's got a stylus. One's a bit smaller. C must stand for small in Korean.

The G4 Stylus is the one you're going to be the most excited about, seeing as you have been conditioned to equate size with being good. It comes with a huge 5.7-inch display, giving you .2-inches more room to enjoy mobile advertising on than this year's new LG G4. The G4 Stylus is a slightly more convoluted beast then the G4, coming with either a  1.2GHz quad-core processor in the LTE model or a 1.4GHz octa-core unit in the 3G one, both of which LG has bafflingly paired with just 1GB of operating memory and 8GB of onboard storage space -- but they do at least accept microSD cards.

The cameras differ too depending on model, with the 4G version of the G4 Stylus having a 13MP sensor and the 3G option having just an 8MP camera. Both have 5MP front-facing cameras, should you ever you do that sort of thing on purpose instead of just recoiling in horror when you switch cameras by accident.

The G4c is the previously rumoured "mini" version, if you can call a phone with a five inch screen small, with LG also shrinking the inside stuff to offer just 1GB of RAM and a 2,540mAh battery. Both should be on sale over the next few weeks. LG's mobile boss says they deliver a "a premium smartphone experience without a premium price," but he didn't actually come out with any prices to convince us that might be true.
