An alleged LG G4 model has apparently cleared the FCC certification. This new variant will reportedly flaunt the much-appreciated wireless charging capability.
Many Android phones released recently come with wireless charging mechanism on board. OEMs are housing this feature in the mid-range handsets as well. But then, LG did not equip the flagship G4 with this feature. Looking at the demand for such phones, the South Korean tech giant is apparently gearing up to release a new variant with wireless charging option.
In any case, readers should note that upon purchasing LG's Quick Circle Cover, the G4 can be charged wirelessly. However, this cover will set the buyers back by an additional $60, Phone Arena reported.
The LG G4 reportedly carried the model number LG 815 in the EMEA regions. When it comes to the U.S., AT&T’s G4 is tied to the model number LG H810. T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon, on the other hand, carry the following model numbers respectively: H811, LG LS991 and LG VS986. All the aforementioned variants are same when it comes to configurations, however, they vary on the basis of 3G and 4G LTE connectivity.
The alleged new LG G4 variant that visited the FCC apparently goes by the model number LG H815PX. This is similar to the model LG H815P, which is being sold in South America and South Africa.
The FCC document does not give out any information other than the wireless charging capability. Hence, there is no way to ascertain if there is any other significant configuration change to the device, at this point.
The South Korean tech giant has not officially confirmed the availability of this new LG H815PX variant in the U.S. Plus, there is no information available on the price of the new variant either. Meanwhile, the price of the current-generation LG G4 with 32 GB native storage on board is $629.99 on eBay.
