It is more or less certain that LG has been working on a new smartphone that is known as the LG G3 mini, considering how it has been spotted in a User Agent Profile before, where other rumors point to this smartphone coming with a 4.5” display and is headed in the direction of AT&T over in the U.S. In China, however, photos of the alleged LG G3 mini do point to it being a handset that is made available to the masses from China Mobile, and it will carry a new name – the LG G3 Beat. This LG G3 Beat will sport the model number of LG-D729, where it is said to feature a 5” display at 720 x 1,280 resolution, hence contradicting the earlier rumor.
As for the rest of the hardware specifications, we are looking in the direction of a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB of internal memory to keep things going right from the get go. Image quality with the LG G3 Beat should not be too shabby either, considering how it packs an 8MP shooter at the back, all of it running on a 2,300mAh battery.
It remains to be seen whether this apparently larger sized LG G3 Beat will be released as a China Mobile exclusive, or will be be a standard issue smartphone released around the world.
