LG G Pro Lite is a middle-range phablet with a stylus pen
Just as we were about to think that all product launches are done for the week, LG surprised us by announcing the LG Optimus G Pro Lite earlier today. Although the phone isn't really a flagshipdevice, the G Pro Lite retains its older brother's display size at 5.5-inches and its 3,140mAh battery.
But the rest of the G Pro's specs, however, have been trimmed on the G Pro Lite. Take for example the 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, the 1GB RAM, and the 1GHz dual-core Mediatek. These, alone, means that we're looking at a middle-level phone that is aimed at budget-conscious consumers.
But probably the interesting feature of the G Pro Lite is its embedded stylus pen - a feature that many wanted on the G Pro. LG is also making the phone competitive by outfitting dual-SIM support and a dedicated Hot Key to make switching between two SIM cardseasy.
Dressing in black and white, the LG G Pro Lite will launchlater this month in Latin America. Next in line will be Asia, Russia, China, India, and Middle East.
