The LG X4 is already available in South Korea in Black and Gold colour variants. The smartphone is priced at 297,000 won or Rs 17,780.
The LG X4 has a 5.3 inch 1280 x 720px 16:9 aspect ratio display. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 Quad-core chipset with 2GB RAM and 16GB onboard storage. Similarly, the storage is expandable using micro SD card slot.

The device does support wireless HD DMB TV (Digital multimedia broadcasting), which allows to stream free TV channels on the smartphone. In fact, it doesn’t use any kind of internet connection. Interestingly, this smartphone also supports LG Pay, which can be used to make cardless/cashless payments using the built-in NFC chip.
