LG has introduced a less expensive version of the LG G Pro called the LG G Pro Lite. The device has a 5.5-inch qHD IPS display. The smartphone will launch this month in Latin America followed by markets in Asia, Russia, China, India and the Middle East. There is no information available about the price of the phone. It will be available in single as well as dual SIM variants.
Coming to the specifications of the LG G Pro Lite, it has a dual-core MediaTek MT6577 1GHz processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. The 5.5-inch display has a 960x540 pixel resolution. The device has 8GB built-in storage expandable via a microSD card. The rear has an 8MP BSI camera with a 1.3MP front facing camera for video calling. It runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
The G Pro Lite is slim measuring in at 9.4mm in thickness and weighs 161 grams. For its connectivity options, it has Bluetooth 3.0, USB2.0, A-GPS and Wi-Fi Direct. It is available in two colours – white and black. A 3140mAh battery powers the package.
“With LG G Pro Lite, we are introducing a competitive device to the masses in the growing large smartphone market,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The market for smartphones with displays over five inches will continue to grow and LG is in a great position to capture these new customers when they’re ready to move up from their current phones.”
The LG G Pro Lite also comes with a stylus that can be stored in the device. The stylus can be used for handwriting recognition along with a bunch of utility apps.
With the specifications on offer, it looks like the G Pro Lite will take on the likes of the Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro and the Micromax Canvas Doodle 2 that are available in India.
