LG Electronics has announced the LG G4 metallic variant in India. It is made up of fine hammer-crafted metal body that gives it a smart and chick look.
LG India launched the G4 with leather back and ceramic white variants initially. After a positive response to the device, the company has decided to launch the LG G4 metallic variant. It has been priced at Rs 40,000 in India. LG was also offering ‘best buy’ festive price on the G4 and G4 Stylus.
Deepak Jasrotia, Business Head, LG Mobiles India, said,
“We have always believed in offering only those products to our consumers that complement their style in making a statement. The G4’s leather back was a step in that direction and we’ve taken it to the next step with this metallic variant of G4. The G4 is our most ambitious product of 2015 and we hope the consumers will continue to show their love for this smartphone, now in an all-new metallic avatar.”
