LG G3 Beat leaks, is a mini G3 with a 5" screen

29 June, 2014

The definition of the word "mini" in the mobile phone world is constantly evolving. Take the LG G3 Beat, that was just leaked, which is one such "mini" phone; but it packs a 5" screen. To put this into perspective, the Nexus 5 has a 4.95" display; the Moto X, a 4.7" one.

The Beat, visually, looks like a slightly shrunken down LG G3; and even though it carries the "mini" moniker, there's certainly nothing subpar about the phone's specifications. The G3 Beat has 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage with a microSD card slot, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 8MP camera, 4G LTE, a 2500mAh battery, and it runs on Android 4.4.2 out of the box.

The G3 Beat should be priced at around 2,500 yuan, which comes out to a little more than $400 SIM free. An official release date for the device hasn't been given, but don't expect it to be too far off from the G3's purported Mid-July release date.
