Just as Samsung has released big-screen phones without hefty, high-end price tags, LG looks set to adopt a similar strategy with a new phone due to launch in Russia soon, the LG G Pro Lite Dual. Images obtained by Russian site hi-tech.mail.ru show a device similar to the Optimus G Pro we're more familiar with, only with a built-in pen — and reportedly less spectacular hardware running the show.
In addition to a 5.5-inch qHD IPS display, the device runs an unnamed 1GHz CPU with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD. There's also an 8-megapixel camera with BSI sensor and a 3140mAh battery, and according to today's report the device runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. So we're clearly not dealing with a high-end phone here, but interestingly, the "Lite Dual" does appear to come with a capacitive stylus, something not bundled with the original G Pro. Both the leaked images and the name suggest it'll have dual SIM support too.
We'll have to wait and see whether this device ever sees release outside of Russia, but we're not holding our breath for the moment.
