LG launches G Pro Lite 5.5-inch smartphone

Lite is sometimes just not enough

In a move similar to Samsung's Galaxy Mega launch, LG has also decided to launch a "Lite" version of its own LG G Pro that should bring some of the G Pro experience at a more budget-friendly level. To be available in single and dual-SIM options and with a "digital pen" the new LG G Pro Lite is powered by a MediaTek's chipset and features a rather mediocre 5.5-inch screen.

Built around a 5.5-inch 960x540 LCD display and based on MediaTek's MT6577 chipset with dual-core CPU clocked at 1GHz and 1GB of RAM, it is quite clear that the new LG G Pro is nowhere close to its non-Lite version and will not certainly break any performance records, or even get any awards for its screen. On the other hand, LG did throw in a Stylus Pen, stereo speakers and couple of other features that might make it stand out in the already crowded mid-range smartphone market.

The rest of the specs include 7.2Mbps HSDPA, 8GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card slot, rear 8-megapixel camera with back-illuminated sensor, 1.3-megapixel front one, capacitive touch keys for home back and dedicated SIM-switch key on dual-SIM or standard home button on single-SIM version and Android 4.1.2 OS.

In case you are wondering, the new LG G Pro Lite measures 150.2x76.9x9.4 mm, weighs 161g and will be available in black or white color options. According to LG, it will show up first in Latin America sometimes during this month and followed by select Asian market and Russia. There is still no word if or will it ever show up in other regions. The price still remains a mystery but we are sure it will be anything but pricey.
