As expected, LG has launched a cheaper variant of the G Pro, called the G Pro Lite. It is a Dual-SIM phone with a 5.5-inch display that will come with a stylus and will probably compete with the likes of the Canvas Doodle 2 and Spice Pinnacle Stylus Mi550. LG says it will be launched in Latin America this month followed by India among other countries.
On the specifications front we are looking at a 5.5-inch qHD display, a 1GHz dual-core MT6577 MediaTek processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. It comes with 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. It also features 8-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front cameras and comes with Wi-Fi Direct and Bluetooth 3.0.
The G Pro Lite comes with most of LG’s software driven features including KnockOn, QuickMemo and QuickSlide among others. It also sports a unique hot key to swap between the two SIM cards without having to go through menu options. LG has not revealed the price but considering the specifications, we would be surprised if it is priced over Rs 20,000.
