In Short

The LG G3 Beat is the smaller, cheaper but familiarly shaped phone that's the little brother of 2014's flagship, the LG G3. It's launching with that name in South Korea. But it's also destined for Europe and the CIS, where it will be known as the "LG G3 s".

Basic specs include a 5-inch IPS LCD display at 720p, an 8-megapixel camera with laser autofocus, and the same UI running atop Android 4.4.2 that we've come to know in LG's flagship.

The LG G3 Beat will be available in South Korea on July 18, and in Europe and the CIS in coming weeks.
