LG Zone 4 launched with 5-inch display, Snapdragon 425 SoC and 8 MP camera

The LG Zone 4 is an entry-level smartphone that you won't be able to buy in India

Two weeks ago, South Korean tech giant LG announced the LG X4 smartphone which came with budget level specs at a mid-range price. Well now, LG has announced a new smartphone that comes with entry-level specifications – dubbed LG Zone 4.

Being a budget smartphone, the specifications of the LG Zone 4 aren’t all that special. The Zone 4 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 425 SoC which is mated to 2 GB of RAM and backed by Adreno 308 GPU.

The smartphone features a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, and, it comes with a big chin which is poor use of space as there’s neither a fingerprint scanner nor capacitive navigation keys. We would have loved LG to cram in a bit larger display by trimming down the bezels and still maintaining the same overall footprint that it now has with that big chin. But anyways, it’s an entry-level smartphone after all.

Having said that, the LG Zone 4 boots up to Android 7.1.2 Nougat, and, has 16 GB of internal storage. However, you can always expand the storage up to 2 Terabytes via microSD card.

For photography, the LG Zone 4 has an 8 MP camera at the back and a 5 MP camera on the front. The Zone 4 only comes in one color, and, fueling the entire package is a 2500 mAh battery underneath. Oh, and there’s also a fingerprint scanner at the back for additional security.
