What we found to be quite confusing is the LG's naming strategy. The G4 suffix can certainly increase the odds of mixing up the names of the other G4 series of devices. So don't get baffled up with it we have laid it out for you in a less baffled way. Presenting to you- The LG G4 BEAT.
Sporting a 5.2 inch full HD IPS display the phone is said to offer more clearer and sharper picture quality. The touch is efficiently responsive as well. The screen is slightly smaller than its predecessor the LG G4 which had a 5.5 inch HD screen. The device weighs at 139 gms which is quite light to hold on to.
The G4 beat will be powered by 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 1.5 Ghz which is clubbed with Adreno 405 GPU. The device runs on an Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. The LG's own UX 4.0 UI is being layered on the top. Along with 1.5 GB of RAM is an 8 GB internal storage capacity
The G4 Beat adorns an 8 MP rear camera coupled with LG's exclusive Color spectrum sensor, Laser Auto Focus, and Manual mode. The 5 MP front facing snapper is equipped with Gesture Interval shot which allows users to take four consecutive selfies with a single hand movement, thus a perfect selfie is guaranteed between these shots. The Manual Mode feature with the primary camera is quite a looked upon one since it allows the user to have full control on each and every detail of the shot taken which includes the shutter speed, ISO and white balance. All the camera features has been rightly developed to tend to the needs of the electronic customers.
The battery capacity provided is much smaller when compared to the earlier G4. The Beat holds just a 2,300 mAh in contrast to the G4 which featured a 3,000 mAh battery. The different color variants available in the market will be Metallic Silver, Ceramic White and shiny Gold.

The LG officials has said that for the G4 Beat the 8 MP rear camera will be featured as a 13 MP one in Latin America. Well that now makes us to wish that we were living in that part of the continent. Nothing much has been revealed about the price, otherwise its just a mid-level phone by LG with a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The 8 GB internal memory space is not quite enough for any user. The 2,300 mAh battery will drain off soon if you are a power user. Hope the phone is equipped with quick charging facility. The Beat of course doesn't bear that expensive look of its predecessor LG G4 but will make you happy with the three color choices for your phone.
