LG G Pro Lite Dual leaked, purportedly a big-screen budget phone

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 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.

  • Ouch. 1ghz might pass for a 4.5 inch phone, but on a 5.5 inch screen? Good luck with that.. Posted via Android Central App
  • screen size is irrelevant, it has to do with the resolution, which here is qHD. Obviously a very low budget phone.
  • What?
  • +1...but maybe with the right optimization Posted via Android Central App
  • mediatek cpu....
  • Lol, no thank you! Galaxy S Four
  • Okay, thanks for letting us all know.
  • Monkey see, monkey do..
  • Pretty much on the mark there. No pun intended Posted via your wifes, girlfriends phone
  • no thanks. i want the HTC ONE MAX
  • Phones like these might actually have a good market around Asia, primarily around India. I've seen lots of people walking around my country sporting phones far more lacking in several areas. Posted via Android Central App
  • Nexus 5?
  • This? Are you kidding? It would suck worse than the N4 does. The N5 should be G2 based not this Galaxy Mega wannabe Posted via your wifes, girlfriends phone
  • qHD for a 5.5" phone?! ... that could have at least been a 720p panel I mean come on now... good luck with that LG Posted via Android Central App
  • Where's my built in pen on my AT&T G Pro E980? That's the only thing I miss from my Note 2.
  • Every dual SIM fone I have ever looked at only do 3G on the number 1 SIM. The second is always GSM. I guess this will be no different. I need one that does 850meg 3G on both SIMs..
