In July, LG unveiled its mid-range smartphone, the LG G3 Beat. Now, it appears that the smartphone is ready to be launched in India as it has been put up for pre-order by Infibeam for a price tag of INR 24,999 with a tentative shipping date of September 13. The LG G3 Beat features a 5-inch HD IPS LCD display, Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, 8MP camera and a 2540 mAh battery. Thanks to its ‘Floating Arc Design’ with smooth curved sides and tapered edges, the G3 Beat looks similar to the LG G3.
Unlike the Xperia Z3 Compact which was launched by Sony last week, the G3 Beat comes with downgraded specifications and features when compared to the LG G3. The screen resolution has been dropped to 1280 x 720 pixels, the camera has a lower resolution of just 8MP and its processor has been downgraded to Snapdragon 400.
