A new LG G4 S handset is reportedly in the cards and the first images now surface online, allegedly showing the device.
The company announced its 2015 flagship smartphone, the LG G4, back in April 2015. For several years now, however, smartphone makers have been on a trend of launching one flagship, then flooding the market with various spinoffs of the marquee device. LG is no exception, and it seems that it still has at least one LG G4 spinoff in the cards.
After launching several variations such as the LG G Stylo, LG G4c or LG G4 Stylus, the company reportedly has one more handset in the works: the LG G4 S.
Previous rumors have speculated regarding the LG G4 S, but ultimately turned out to be off. Nevertheless, the rumor mill keeps churning and the purported smartphone is now the star of a new leak, claiming to show the first images of the LG G4 S.
If a new report (translated) out of Russia turns out to be accurate, the yet-to-be-announced LG G4 S will bear a striking resemblance to the LG G4 flagship in terms of design. The smartphone also features the rear-key layout, as well as a slightly curved body. When it comes to specs, the new variant is expected to feature a 5.2-inch display with in-cell technology and a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Under the hood, the handset will reportedly pack an octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz.
The report further reveals having learned from sources that the LG G4 S will also feature an 8-megapixel rear camera with Laser Auto Focus, dual-LED flash and adjustable manual settings in the pre-installed apps.
Lastly, the publication claims that the LG G4 S will make its official debut sometime in the second half of July. LG reportedly plans to market this handset as a high-end smartphone with a bargain price tag, but no pricing details are available at this point. The LG G4 S should have a lower price than the flagship LG G4.
Keep in mind, however, that LG has yet to make an official announcement in this regards, which means that it all remains in the rumor state for now. As always with leaks and unconfirmed reports, take everything with a grain of salt.
