We recently came across a leaked catalog which showed us a Android smartphone from LG dubbed LG G Pro Lite and now the device has been made official from the South Korean smartphone maker.
The LG G Pro Lite has two variants, one a single SIM one and the other a dual SIM one. The single SIM variant consists of the usual home back and menu keys while the dual SIM variant adds a SIM switch key which lets you change swap between the two SIM cards you are using.
The specs of the device are pretty mediocre at best and should make it a budget offering. The LG G Pro Lite features a 5.5-inch qHD (960 x 540) LCD, a dual core 1 GHz MediaTek processor, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB of on-board storage which can be expanded via microSD. There’s a 8 MP rear camera which is Back Side Illuminated sensor and a 2 MP front facing cam. There’s a stylus as well which brings the same features as the LG Optimus G Pro. It features a 3140 mAh battery, stereo speakers and an “ultra thin” bezel as LG likes to call it.
The smartphone will come with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and first make its way to Latin America and later to Asia, Middle East and Russia. There’s no word on the price yet but the LG G Pro Lite should be a budget priced device focusing on people who want a Optimus G Pro but cannot afford the high price. LG is going great guns with its LG G2 arguably the best Android smartphone right now and with Nexus 5 on the horizon things are going to get even better.
