Looks like LG is working on some sort of “Lite” version of its Optimus G Pro phablet. According to Hiemail@example.com, the Korean company may launch the G Pro Lite Dual in Russia in mid-October. The same source goes on to claim this device will sell for 12,999 Rubles, which is the amount that translates into roughly $400, making for a sweet deal.
Specs are still unknown but we guess this thing will likely boast hardware that isn’t on par with the “regular” Optimus G Pro. It will have an 8- (rather than 13-) megapixel camera on the back, and perhaps an older/slower processor. The LG Optimus G Pro comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 and the Lite model may end-up with Snapdragon S4 Pro or even MediaTek’s chip.
The screen size will remain the same with a 5.5-inch diagonal though it could support an HD (720p) rather than full HD resolution.
Then again, the “Lite” model will rock two SIM card slots, allowing users to connect to two different networks at once. That’s something the original Optimus G Pro lacks, and also a feature many of us crave for.
We’ll see whether the LG G Pro Lite will also be available in some other markets outside of Russia…
