The LG G3 Beat is essentially the obligatory “mini” version of the flagship G3, but at 5in, at least the South Korean manufacturer had the good sense to ditch the “mini” moniker.
When the LG G3 Beat launched earlier this week, we were told it would sit at a “lower price point than was previously possible”, and now we gots more specifics.
We’re looking at LG’s official German blog, which is a damn sight better than “people familiar with the matter who wish to remain anonymous”.
According to Jan’s cousins, LG G3 price will come in at €349 in Europe, and while literal translations don’t take taxes and such into account, that’s roughly £276 in David Cameron’s money.
Interestingly, that’s cheaper than similar phones like the HTC One mini 2 and Sony Xperia Z1 Compact – the latter having significantly better specs, admittedly.
For that money, you’re getting a 5in 720p display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, an 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP on the front for selfies, a removable 2,540mAh battery, and KitKat Android 4.4.2.
As for the LG G3 Beat’s UK release date, it’s looking like late July/early August. Should ye care.
