With recent flagship Android phones growing so large, nearly all of them have been accompanied a mini brother. The LG G3 could be the latest to follow this trend with a new LG device in China entitled the G3 Beat. The G3 Beat is pretty much a shrunken-down G3 with some changed specs. The biggest change comes in the screen, which takes a major hit in the resolution, getting bumped down to 720p on a 5-inch display. Coming from the G3 with its QHD 5.5-inch display, we’d have hoped that this would at least be 1080p.
The rest of the G3 Beat’s specs include a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera with laser auto-focus, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 2,450mAh battery, Android 4.4.2 KitKat and dual-SIM connectivity. The G3 Beat is set to hit China next month for a US dollar equivalent of about $400. No further availability was detailed, but we could the G3 Beat easily becoming the mini variant of the G3.
