LG may have wowed us with the G2 but the company isn’t neglecting the lower end of the market. An announcement from the company yesterday officially revealed their G Pro Lite phone, which is aimed at a very difference audience.
The G Pro Lite doesn’t feature the same speedy hardware as recent entries from LG, featuring a 1GHz dual core MT6577 processor, 1GB of system memory and 8GB of internal storage. The display is also a step down, being a 5.5-inch 960 x 540 affair. There is a removable 3,140mAh battery in there, as well as an 8 megapixel camera.
LG is touting a Stylus Pen which comes with the G Pro Lite as well as UX features similar to those seen in the more evolved G-series handsets. Users will be able to unlock the screen with KnockOn’s dual tap function, there is a multi-window feature, continuous stop-start video recording on a single file and LG’s QuickMemo and QTranslator are also on the cards.
There are no hints on what the pricing for the G Pro Lite will be but it’ll likely be fairly inexpensive. The price may not matter however, a potential launch here in South Africa is also in doubt. The low-spec handset is due to roll out first in Latin America before heading to Asia, Russia, the Middle East, China and India.
