London, May 19, 2015—LG Electronics (LG) officially announces the G4c – the newest member to the G4 family. The smartphone will begin shipping to retailers around the world from this month. The competitively priced device shares many of the same high-end user experience features found in the LG G4.
As the smaller sibling of the LG G4, the 5.0-inch LG G4c offers many of the G4’s premium features and styling but in a more compact form factor.
The G4c features an 8MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera for high quality photos and portraits. Other popular LG exclusives such as Gesture Shot, Glance View and Knock Code™ make the G4c convenient, secure and fun to use.
“The G4c is a perfect example of what we mean by a premium smartphone experience without a premium price,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “We are committed to offering consumers in fast-growing markets LG devices that not only deliver performance, but also look good while doing so. The G4c will surpass customers’ expectations of what an LG phone should be.”
The LG G4c is scheduled to launch in key strategic markets in the weeks to come – with the UK release date in June. Prices and participating carriers will be announced locally at the time of availability.
