LG seems to be in no hurry to stop churning out variations of its flagship G4 smartphone . According to Russian website Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru, a G4 S could be looming on the horizon.

Looking every bit like the standard model, says the tipster, the more midrange G4 S would pack a less-powerful punch. Specifications are alleged to include a 1.5GHz octa-core processor and an 8-megapixel rear camera with laser auto-focus and dual-LED flash.

The G4 S could feature a 5-inch 1,080p display, according to the report. For the sake of comparison, the G4 boasts a 5.5-inch screen at 2,560x1,440 pixels. Factoring all of this in, the rumored device would be not only a tad smaller but presumably less expensive.

It is not clear where or how LG plans to position the G4 S. The flagship model is already available in a wide number of markets. Also, LG recently introduced the G4 Stylus and G4c, these being bigger and smaller takes on the original G4.

CNET has contacted LG for details on the G4 S and will update this post with any new information.
