LG just took the wraps off of the LG G3 Beat, which it describes as “a mid-tier variant” of the LG G3. The LG G3 Beat offers a design similar to its flagship sibling and also includes the same Laser Auto Focus feature on its backside.
Unfortunately for anyone hoping for a high-end LG G3 mini, that’s where the similarities end. The LG G3 Beat packs a fairly mid-range spec list.
LG G3 Beat Specs:
- 5-inch 1280x720 display
- 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor
- 8-megapixel rear camera with Laser Auto Focus
- 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter
- 8GB storage
- microSD card slot
- 1GB of RAM
- 2540mAh battery
- 4G LTE/21Mbps HSPA+
- 137.7 x 69.6 x 10.3mm
- Metallic Black, Silk White, Shine Gold colors
- Android 4.4.2 with custom LG features like Smart Keyboard and Gesture Shot
The LG G3 Beat would have been an awesome 5-inch phone (that feel like a 4.5-inch in your hand) if it would have got high end specs instead of mid-range… Stupid really.
