LG G3 s (aka Beat) to be priced at €349 in Europe, launching next month

It was only yesterday when LG announced the Beat / G3 s, which caters for consumers looking for a mid-range Android smartphone. Today, LG Germany revealed that the new mobile phone will set purchases back €349. The G3 Beat and "G3 s" are the same phone — those in Asia will get the G3 Beat and Europe will receive the "LG G3 s". It's also stated by LG Germany that the G3 s will launch sometime in August, presumably alongside other nearby markets.

To quickly recap on some of the specifications, the G3 s comes with a 5-inch display at 720p, an 8MP camera and a lower price. It also shares the same looks of its more advanced sibling, the LG G3. There's also a 2,540 mAh battery — only about 15 percent less capacity than the G3 proper — and everything helps power Android 4.4.2 KitKat with the same UI. We'll hopefully have more details on other regions where the LG G3 Beat will be launching at a later date.

Will you be looking to pick one up?
