LG is all set to release its G3 Beat smartphone in the Indian market. The smartphone is currently listed for pre-orders at e-retailer Infibeam.com with a price-tag of INR 24,999. The e-retailer notes that it will start shipping the phone on September 13, indicating at an official launch sometime in the second week of September.
A smaller cousin of the company’s flagship G3 smartphone, the new G3 Beat features a 5-inch HD display, 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.4.4. The phone also comes with 8GB of internal storage, microSD card slot and 2540 mAh battery.
On the imaging front, LG has included an 8MP rear camera with laser auto-focus support and 1.3MP front camera on the phone. You can check out the full specifications later in the report.
In terms of the software enhancements, the usual LG add-ons like Touch & Shoot, Smart Keyboard, QuickMemo+, and Gesture Shot are available on the G3 Beat.
As we are still waiting for the official announcement, we won’t considering the INR 24,999 pricing final but if G3 Beat indeed launches at the same price, it will have a hard time finding any buyers. The phone packs practically the same specifications as the new Moto G apart from the laser auto-focus and a bigger battery and the Motorola smartphone is being sold at half its price.
