As Russian blog reports, LG has a new Android-powered phablet in the works. The site posted images of the device along with a list of rumored specs. The phone, called LG G Pro Lite Dual, is expected to arrive in stores in select markets in Europe in the near future. The launch date in Russia is supposedly set for mid-October. The LG G Pro Lite Dual will come with a rather affordable price tag of RUR 13,000, or $400 if you prefer the US currency.
5.5″ LG G Pro Lite Dual Android Phablet
The name of the phone pretty much explains everything. The LG G Pro Lite Dual is basically a more modest, dual-SIM version of the LG Optimus G. The device measures 150.2 x 76.9 x 9.5 mm and packs a 5.5-inch IPS display. The resolution, however, is only 540 x 960 pixels and works out to half the pixel density offered by its older brother.
The handset is powered by a dual-core 1 GHz processor of unknown make and comes with 1 GB of RAM. Internal memory is also nothing to write home about with only 8 GB of storage for your content. Luckily, there is a microSD slot for memory expansion.
The LG G Pro Lite Dual is equipped with an 8-megapixel rear camera with a BSI sensor and runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with LG’s skin on top. As expected, the UI offers LG-exclusive functionalities such as KnockOn, and Guest mode. Other key features include a 3,140mAh battery, FM radio and a stylus.
