LG first introduced the LG isai earlier this year exclusively as a Japanese device with the company’s first WQHD display. Now, the Korean manufacturer has revealed an improved version of the Isai having the same specs and features to the original.
Among its important changes, the new improved device comes with VoLTE capabilities, allowing users to place calls over the LTE network. Additionally, the amount of included RAM has been boosted from 2 GB to 3GB, bringing the specs even closer to the LG’s current flagship, the LG G3.
Much like the isai FL, the new LG isai VL Smartphone will be exclusive to Japan carrier, KDDI, and is expected to go on sale in the whole country starting as early as December. The new LG isai VL device will feature the already-mentioned upgraded specifications along with three different color varieties: Aqua, Black and Pink gold.
The manufacturer also touts the fact that isai VL will become the first Smartphone in Japan to support Voice over LTE (VoLTE) that ensures a high-quality voice, video and multimedia services. This will also support 4G LTE networks with a maximum of speed up to 150 Mbps.
Other specifications listed for the LG isai VL device are identical to its predecessor, the isai FL. Basically, the device sports the same 5.5 inch AH-IPS LCD QHD device with a massive 538 ppi pixel density that was also announced for the G3.
The LG isai VL runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, sports a 13.2 MP camera in the back and a 1.3 camera in the front. Related to the storage capacity, the handset comes with 32GB of inbuilt storage (microSDXC support up to 128 GB) and also 3000mAh battery capacity.
Regarding the chipset, the company has not revealed the exact specifications, but the Smartphone will likely be powered by the quad-core 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 MSM8975AC chipset. Connectivity features also include Infrared, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/c/ac and 4G LTE. Additionally, isai VL supports LG’s Knock code feature and is listed as dust resistant and waterproof.
Japan has become an important marketplace for the Korean Manufacturer in the past few years, and the company is doing its best in order to attract a wide number of customers. It is nice to see a name like LG making its name through the vast Smartphone market in the eastern part of the world.
