Around six months after its initial launch a new version of the LG’s flagship smartphone the G4 has hit shelves in the manufacturer’s homeland of South Korea and it’s called the White Gold Edition.
You’d imagine (as the title would have you believe) that this model would be encased in something like an 18 karat precious metal, but in fact the “White Gold” simply means it has a white matte plastic casing with a faux gold plated trim around the edge which doesn’t look quite as stylish as some of the leather variations already available.
Beneath the appearances the repackaged LG G4 features all the same specifications as the regular model released this past April, meaning it comes running Android 5.0.2 Lollipop out of the box (updatable to 6.0 Marshmallow) and this is displayed on a 5.5-inch Quad HD touchscreen with processing handled by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 CPU. Internal storage comes in at 32GB which is expandable to a generous 2TB on Micro SD and the handset comes with a 16-megapixel main camera.
More fool’s gold than actual gold here we think, and despite the LG G4 being a splendid smartphone we don’t see this variant going much further than the South Korean market.
