It has been in the rumor mills since long, but the LG G3 Beat has finally been made official by the South Korean smartphone giant. This is actually a mid-range variant of its flagship device which is to be released first in Korea and later in other nations from around the world.
This device carries onboard a 5-inch display which showcases its visuals in 720p HD resolution. Its screen-to-body ratio of 74.1 percent is the highest in the mid-tier segment, according to LG. Boasting of minimal bezels, it of course adopts the same design philosophy as that of the G3.
This smartphone runs on a 1.2GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor which is provided assistance by 1GB worth of RAM. The G3 Beat features 8GB of expandable storage, aside from a 2540mAh battery. The Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS is what powers it from within.
The LTE-capable handset kicks in an 8MP rear camera with the flagship’s Laser Auto Focus technology to accompany it. Software additions like the Smart Keyboard, QuickMemo+ and more also form part of its offerings.
