LG has already proved itself as one of the best handset makers with its LG Optimus series. More precisely, Optimus G and Optimus G Pro has brought the manufacturer's name into the top notch level. Now the company is said to come up with the new variant of the Optimus G Pro soon. Russian publication hi-tech.mail.ru says that the new variant would be called G Pro Lite Dual. The major difference between the original G Pro and the new one would be a dual SIM support in the upcoming one. However, the site didn't mention any other major differences between the two handsets.
On the other hand, in India, LG's epic handset G2 which costs Rs. 40,490 is already up for pre-orders. Thus, the dual SIM variant of the G Pro would likely be overshadowed by it if it comes soon. However, to those who are more inclined to getting themselves a dual SIM handset, nothing can stop them from choosing G Pro Lite Dual over G Pro.
Moreover, "Lite" word might confuse a lot of people as it is considered synonymous with "mini" in tech world. But worry not, LG G Pro Lite Dual is literally not a mini or Lite handset but it is said to come with 5.5 inch True IPS display, 8MP rear camera, dual speakers, and a 3,140 mAh battery. Other details of the handset remains a mystery as of now. But when if comes to OS, the handset might house the latest Android Jelly Bean v4.3.
Further, the site also claims, that the device will be released in Russia around mid-October at 12,990 RUB (approx. Rs 25,129). If looked from the price perspective, the new dual SIM LG G Pro lite would perhaps be featuring the HD display instead of the original FHD that featured in G Pro. Also the makers might downsize the CPU to MediaTek from Snapdragon 600 to match the given price of the handset.
However, as of now there is no official confirmation about the device but surely, if it does come in the Russian market next month, it is likely to reach other markets at the same time as well. We will keep you updated with more tech news, stay tuned to GizBot.
