You didn't think that LG would reserve its latest design language just for the G4, did you? Sure enough, WinFuture claims to have leaked details of the G4c, a 5-inch budget counterpart to the G4 flagship. In many ways, it appears to be a straight-up refresh of the G3 Beat (G3 S). You'd get a slightly faster Snapdragon 410 processor and a higher-resolution 5-megapixel front shooter, but you'd also wind up with the Beat's familiar 720p display, 8MP rear camera, 8GB of expandable storage and 2,540mAh battery. In fact, it might take a step backward -- we're not seeing signs of laser autofocus, a color sensor or other special camera tricks. If all you're looking for is that "Metallic Craft" back in a lower-cost package, though, you'll be happy to hear that the G4c is rumored to ship in early June.
