LG's latest Mid-Range Smartphone is Now Available in Canada
TORONTO, Aug. 12, 2015 /CNW/ - The newest variant of LG Electronics' widely praised LG G4 flagship smartphone—the LG G4 Vigor—is now available through SaskTel, Videotron and Virgin Mobile. Just in time for the back to school season, the LG G4 Vigor delivers the best features and functions of the LG G4, offering value without compromising performance or usability.
The LG G4 Vigor comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS Display, which is clearer, sharper and more responsive than anything offered by LG before in this category. A powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 615 processor running eight cores at 1.5GHz with integrated 4G LTE delivers an optimal balance of power, performance and battery life.
The camera features found in the LG G4 Vigor are as impressive as its hardware. On the back is an 8MP camera, supported by LG's exclusive Colour Spectrum Sensor and Laser Auto Focus. Manual Mode, one of the most acclaimed features in the G4, allows full creative control over every detail in each shot. LG also enhanced the 5MP front-facing shooter with Gesture Interval Shot to allow users to take four consecutive selfies with a single hand gesture, increasing the odds of capturing that perfect shot.
"Now more than ever, Canadians are looking for choice and options when it comes to choosing their next smartphone," said Ross Snow, Vice-President, Mobile Communications, LG Electronics Canada. "The LG G4 Vigor builds on the current G-Series lineup by offering the key features Canadians love in the flagship LG G4 with terrific value and an even more accessible price point."
