“The LG X4+ comes with a Snapdragon 425, 3,000mAh battery and Android Nougat”
While LG has been launching most of its flagship and mid-range smartphones with MIL-STD 810G rating, including the latest LG V30+ (review), it has a separate lineup of rugged smartphones as well the X series. The brand has now gone ahead and launched the latest in the series in the form of the LG X4+ in South Korea. The new handset is a rugged upgrade to the LG X400 that was launched early last year.
Speaking of the build, the handset borrows design cues from the X400 and flaunts an aluminium body, which has passed MIL-STD 810G certification. What this means is that the handset can withstand vibration, high and low temperatures, thermal shock, and humidity. It retains the same 5.3-inch IPS display with 1,280 x 720 pixels resolution from the X400. As for the performance, it gets a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, which comes backed by 2GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage.
Moving on to the optics, the LG X4+ features a 13-megapixel primary camera on the back accompanied by an LED flash. As for the selfies and video calling, the device gets a 100-degree wide angle, 5-megapixel shooter. On the software front, the handset runs LG UX based on Android 7.0 Nougat and also comes with support for LG Pay. There is an embedded Hi-Fi DAC, which promises better sound. There is a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, which can also be used to click pictures or capture screenshots. A 3,000mAh battery completes the spec sheet of the smartphone.
LG is offering the handset in two hues Morocane Blue and Lavender Violet. Slated to go on sale later this month, the X4+ has been priced at 3,00,000 Won, which roughly converts to Rs 18,000. In South Korea, the handset will be sold through all three major carriers, but there is no word regarding the global launch of the handset.
