LG has today taken the wraps off the G3 A, a smaller version of its flagship smartphone that actually shares a lot of its hardware specs with last year's G2. The LG G3 A features a 5.2-inch 1080p display and is powered by a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, but it's packed into a G3-style body. On the software side you've got Android 4.4 KitKat with LG's latest smartphone UI, including KnockOn, Knock Code and its "smart" keyboard. The whole package is powered by a 2,610mAh battery, a smidgen more than the Korean G2, which used a 2,600mAh cell, and it'll set Korean buyers back 704,000 won (around $670).

The G3 A also inherits the G3's 13-megapixel camera with laser autofocus and metallic-backed design.

While many of us may be intrigued by the possibility of a slightly smaller G3, right now the G3 A is exclusive to Korea's SKT, with no suggestion of any wider launch.
