    For fans of LG devices who need something more affordable than the flagship, the company just unveiled something for you (as long as you live in one of its key markets). It's called the LG G4 Beat, and its mid-range specs and cheaper price might appeal to folks in the mobile consumer landscape who don't need all the bells and whistles. Here is the breakdown:
    • Chipset: Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 615 Processor
    • Display: 5.2-inch Full HD IPS LCD (1920 x 1080, 423ppi)
    • Memory: 8GB eMMC ROM / 1.5GB RAM
    • Camera: Rear 8MP LDAF (13MP in Latin America) / Front 5MP
    • Battery: 2,300mAh (removable)
    • Operating System: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
    • Size: 142.7 x 72.6 x 9.85mm
    • Weight: 139g
    • Network: 4G LTE / HSPA+ 42.2Mbps (3G)
    • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b, g, n / Bluetooth 4.1 / NFC / A-GPS / Glonass / USB 2.0
    • Colors: Metallic Silver / Ceramic White / Shiny Gold
    As you can see, it's not going to break any records, yet should still be serviceable for some folks. Of course, that depends on where you live and how much it will sell for. The pricing details have not been revealed yet, but it will be sold in Europe and Latin America, including France, Germany and Brazil. It will later roll out globally in markets such as Canada, India, Russia, Singapore, South Africa and Turkey, among others.

    Here in the US, feel free to utter a collective... "meh."
