Following weeks of speculation and leaks, LG has officially unveiled the G3 Beat a.k.a. the G3 S earlier today sporting a midrange hardware. It’s certainly not a mini device as most of us would have expected and merely a midrange variant of the standard G3 with a slightly smaller display.
The 5 inch display on the G3 Beat has a resolution of 1280 x 720, so it’s certainly not a pixel beast. However, considering the key demographic for smartphones like these, it’s not much of a concern. LG boasts the display-to-body ratio of device as being 74.1%, which is quite impressive and follows in the footsteps of the G3.
The smartphone also has an 8-megapixel camera on the back with Laser Auto Focus and a dedicated LED flash. Other specs include a 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 400 SoC, 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, 1GB of RAM, a 2,540 mAh battery and Android 4.4.2 KitKat with LG’s custom UI layering. The handset will be sold in Metallic Black, Silk White and Shine Gold color variants. LG is making the device available in South Korea starting tomorrow with other Asian and European markets getting it in the coming weeks.
