LG G4 Stylus and LG G4c unveiled as budget-friendly options

The LG G4 just started selling this week, but today the company is unveiling two new budget friendly variants. Joining the flagship phone we now have a smaller LG G4c and the note-taking G4 Stylus (branded as the G Stylo in the U.S. and Korea).

“The G4 Stylus and G4c are perfect examples of what we mean by a premium smartphone experience without a premium price,” said LG’s mobile president and CEO Juno Cho. “We are committed to offering consumers in fast-growing markets LG devices that not only deliver performance, but also look good while doing so.”

Neither new phone offers the high-end specs included with the original G4, but both new options still bring something unique. For the G4 Stylus, that’s a “Rubberdium” Stylus. It also packs a quad-core LTE processor, a hefty 5.7-inch HD display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage with microSD support, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a 3000mAh removable battery, and comes in silver or white. There’s also a 3G version of the device with slightly downgraded specs.

Meanwhile, the LG G4c packs a significantly smaller 5-inch HD display, a quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage with microSD support, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera a 2,540mAh removable battery and LTE support. It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box and comes in gray, white or gold.

Like we said, neither of these devices will blow you away in the specs department. If you’re looking for a high-powered phone check out the LG G4. But if you need something a little cheaper LG has you covered with two pretty solid options.

The company hasn’t announced an exact price or release date yet, though we’ll let you know once that information hits. For now, you can check out our hands-on gallery with the flagship G4 below.
