Leather begone: smaller, cheaper LG G4c leaks online

A new mid-range version of the G4 could be set to launch in June

Just over a week after the launch of the LG G4, a new version has appeared online.

The new handset - apparently called the LG G4c - has been making the rounds on various Dutch and German website and 0815.eu has leaked both an image and specs.

The G4c is said to feature a smaller and less pixel-packed 5in 720 x 1280 display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage, 8MP rear- and 5MP front-cameras and a 2540mAh battery. 

The image appears to show it keeps the slight curvature of the G4 flagship, and the rear power/volume buttons. But it's also lost the leather rear panel of its bigger premium G4 brother, most likely to keep costs down.

LG released a similar phone after the launch of the LG G3 last year, in the form of the LG G3S, so it makes sense for a mid-range handset to arrive on the market again.

It’s being listed for €297.50, which converts to approximately US$336 and WinFuture reports it will launch in Germany on June 5th. We'll let you know when official release dates and pricing are revealed.
