LG on Friday launched the new LG X4+ in South Korea. The LG X4+ is the first smartphone to feature the LG Pay smartphone payment platform. It will allow users to enter their fingerprints or passwords to make payments. Additionally, LG has introduced Finger Touch that will enable users to take selfies and screenshots by pressing the fingerprint sensor. The phone has been priced at KRW 300,000 (roughly Rs. 17,900) and will be available later this month on three mobile carriers in South Korea.

There is a 13-megapixel rear camera sensor with 77-degree angle, and a 5-megapixel front sensor with 100-degree wide-angle lens. The smartphone runs Android 7.0 Nougat.
The phone has 32GB of inbuilt storage expandable via microSD card (up to 2TB). Connectivity options on the phone include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and USB Type-B. Dimensions of the phone are 148.6x75.1x8.6mm and the weight is 172.3 grams. There is a 3000mAh battery under the hood.
