So LG’s G3 Beat has somewhat been confirmed for launch in the US as it recently made its way through the FCC. What’s more, the device comes with radios that are compatible with AT&T’s network, supporting LTE bands 2, 4, 5 and 17.
The listing at the FCC was spotted by G4Games. The LG G3 Beat was showcased last week in China at the 2014 Tianyi mobile Fair & Mobile Internet Forum and the company has also applied a trademark for the name in the US along with other devices such as the Lite, Vigor, Vista, all of which are part of the flagship family. The device is considered to be the G3 mini.
But that hasn’t been confirmed and previous rumors have suggested that the compact phone would come with a 4.5-inch design. The smartphone in question, however, looks to be much bigger, at least 5 inches wide. The resolution hasn’t been confirmed as yet and we expect it to be at least 720p HD. It shares the exact same design as the flagship’s, but drops the super slim bezels for thicker ones.
A single LED flash can be found on the rear and the company has decided to retain the laser AF system as well. Where hardware is concerned, the handset comes with a 1.2GHz quad core processor that’s most likely the Snapdragon 400.
Here are the LG G3 Beat’s specs:
– 1.2GHz quad core processor
– 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, microSD expandable
– Android 4.4.2 KitKat
– 8MP rear camera
– 2500mAh battery
– 4G LTE
Apart from the LG G3 Beat, the company also plans to launch the G Vista in the US and it has been leaked multiple times carrying Verizon’s branding. There’s no word on when the device will go on sale.
