However in Latin America, LG is launching the G4 Beat with a 13 megapixel rear camera variant.

LG tonight expanded its family of G4 smartphones by introducing the G4 Beat. It will subsequently roll out globally to markets such as Canada, India, Russia, Singapore, South Africa and Turkey. Storage is nearly dismal at 8 GB.

The handset will be available in Metallic Silver, Ceramic White and Shiny Gold in India (with the second launch wave), but details about when it will arrive, have not been let out. It’s also known as the LG G4s but the “Beat” name seems to be less confusing.

Admittedly, the rear 8-megapixel camera is quite a step down from the G4’s 16-megapixel sensor, but what the G4 Beat lacks in size, it makes up for by keeping the G4’s unique color spectrum sensor and laser autofocus. In terms of specifications, the G4 comes with a 5.5-inch display with Quantum IPS panel that is 25 percent brighter, Slim Arc design, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM.

“Too often, mid-tier phones sacrifice overall usability in order to include that one killer feature”, says LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company president and CEO Juno Cho. This dual SIM phone offers 4G connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, FM radio, and a micro USB port. It has a 3000 mAh battery. LG is also throwing its own custom user interface, complete with features like Manual Mode that’ll let you change the camera’s ISO, shutter speed, color temperature, and more. The company has not officially announced the launch date and price of the device yet.
