LG keeps expanding its quite extensive lineup of Android devices with the new member that was announced today, the LG G Pro Lite. As the name suggests, it’s a lower-end version of the Optimus G Pro targeted for practical smartphone users.
The G Pro Lite doesn’t have any intentions of topping the benchmark charts, nor being on the top of the food chain. Instead, it tries to be just a cheap alternative in a market segment that is dominated mostly by top-of-the-line devices. The enhanced and feature-rich user experience and the low price will probably be the key selling points of the device, as the specs are not spectacular by any means. The 5.5-inch of 540x960p resolution won’t wow anyone, despite its large size. Same goes with the CPU unit: the 1GHz dual-core MediaTek MT6577 is not that great, but it will be hopefully enough to drive the UI smoothly. It has 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM and a microSD slot which should please most customers. The rear camera sensor is 8MP, while the front shooter is 1.3MP. The battery capacity of 3140mAh should be enough for a couple of days of moderate usage. The G Pro Lite runs on the dated Android 4.1.2 Jellybean skinned with LG’s custom skin.
The phone has a slim waistline and is relatively light given the size at 161g. It will be available in black and white and it will feature a stylus.
LG G Pro Lite will debut in Latin America this month, followed by Russia, China, India and the Middle East.
