It wasn’t too long ago that LG officially announced their flagship handset, the LG G3. The device packed some impressive specs, such as a QHD display and a laser-guided autofocus system for its camera. However if the phone was a bit too pricey for your liking, you might be interested to learn that LG has announced a slightly more low-end version called the LG G3 Beat.
The LG G3 Beat isn’t new per se as it was announced in China back in June, but according to LG, the handset is expected to make its way to South Korea on the 18th of July followed by Europe and the Commonweath of Independent States in the following weeks, so we guess it will be available for purchase outside of China in the coming month or so.
In terms of specs, the handset is pretty much the same as the China variant. This means that users can look forward to a 5-inch 720p HD display and a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. It will also pack 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage that is expandable via microSD.
The LG G3 Beat will also feature an 8MP rear-facing camera with a laser autofocus system, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, a 2,540mAh battery, and will run on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. No word on pricing but we expect that it will be priced different from country to country.
