It does seem as though LG has taken a page out of Samsung’s playbook – that is, by introducing a smartphone with a large display without having it break the bank in terms of budget. Hence, LG is proud to announce the LG G Pro Lite, where it will arrive with a 5.5” IPS display (960×540) as well as special user interface features. To make sure that the large display is adequately powered, LG has also thrown in a generous 3140 mAh battery into the LG G Pro Lite, where it will be accompanied by other hardware features such as an embedded Stylus Pen, stereo speakers and Dual SIM support with a dedicated Hot Key. In short, this is a direct competitor for the Galaxy Mega 5.8 that we previously reviewed.
The LG G Pro Lite was also designed in such a way where it will come with an ultra-narrow bezel so that you get to enjoy an incredible edge-to-edge viewing experience, while the slim design itself can be best described to deliver an optimal one-handed grip. Convenient user interface features are also found here, just like what you can find on LG’s other premium G Series smartphones. There is no word on pricing, but the LG G Pro Lite will be available in Latin America, where that will be followed by markets in Asia, Russia, China, India and the Middle East.
Some of the key specifications include a dual-core 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded via a microSD memory card slot, an 8-megapixel shooter at the back with a 1.3-megapixel camera in front, and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean in tow. [Press Release]
