According to some rumors, the LG Optimus G Pro is expected to have a similar version launched, I’m talking about the LG G Pro Lite Dual, which sports dual-SIM support and features some downgraded specifications.
The new version comes with almost the same measurements as its sibling, standing at 150.2 x 76.9 x 9.5 mm, being slightly thicker and wider, but it’s kind of physically impossible to notice the difference with the naked eye.
The LG G Pro Lite is going to host, like its predecessor, a 5.5 inches IPS touchscreen, but unfortunately, it doesn’t inherit the resolution and pixel density, having only a qHD resolution of 960 x 540 pixels and a pixel density of 200 ppi.
A stylus will be provided with the new phablet and it will be hosted in the handset’s body.
The chipset has suffered a downgrade too, as instead of seeing a Snapdragon 600 in action, we’re expected to settle with a dual-core 1 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM instead of 2 and 8 GB of internal memory (not 16 or 32, like before). Of course, there’s a card slot for expanding the storage capacity.
For taking pictures, the LG G Pro Lite comes with an 8 MP camera instead of 13, like the one featured by the original G Pro, and has a back-illuminated sensor (BIS).
The new smartphone comes loaded with Android v4.1.2 Jelly Bean and features some neat LG customizations, such as KnockOn, Video pause, Guest mode or QSlide. Also, it holds a “dual speaker” for enhancing the sound quality, a 3,140 mAh battery, FM Radio support and probably more.
The source that published the rumors states that the new dual-SIM version is going to hit the Russian markets soon, at the middle of October.
Given its specifications, the phablet’s price is going to be much smaller than its sibling’s, around $400, according to the leaks.
