LG launched the Optimus G Pro earlier this year and now it is reportedly readying a dual-SIM variant of the smartphone. Russian website Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru reports that this device called the LG G Pro Lite Dual will be priced below its predecessor and will feature a lower-end display and processor and will also come bundled with a stylus.
According to the report, the G Pro Lite Dual is said to sport a 5.5-inch qHD IPS (960×540 pixels) display with half the pixel density of its predecessor. It is likely to be powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor instead of the Snapdragon 600 processor paired with 1GB of RAM (down from 2GB).
Other features likely to be included are an 8-megapixel rear camera with a BSI sensor, 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, FM Radio and the same 3,140mAH battery. The phablet will run on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and will come pre-loaded with LG’s customizations like KnockOn and Guest mode among others.
The report speculates that the device will be priced around $400 (Rs 25,000 approximately) and will launch in Russia sometime in October. Not surprisingly, there’s currently no word on when the device will come to our shores.
