5.5" LG G Pro Lite announced with stylus, dual speakers, dual SIM and modest specs

LG just lifted the veil from its rumored G Pro Lite phablet, which seems destined to battle with Samsung's Mega line. The phone keeps the screen size of its namesake at 5.5", but with much lower 540x960 resolution.

The processor is also slimmed down to an entry MediaTek level, dual-core and clocked at 1 GHz. The G Pro Lite sports 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage plus a microSD slot, and an 8 MP rear camera. The beefy 3140 mAh battery should do endurance wonders with this screen and specs. The G Pro Lite is comparatively thin at 9.4mm, and weighs the reasonable for a 5.5" phone 164g.

A stand-out feature are the dual speakers "for excellent audio performance with or without headphones," which is not something you see on a phone every day, let alone an affordable phablet.

Not only that, but the phablet comes with an embedded stylus, similar to Samsung's Note line, and dual SIM capability, which hints that it is targeted towards emerging market customers which are jonesing for a phablet with two SIM cards and on the cheap. The stylus is tucked at the top, not the bottom like with the Galaxy Notes. but like them comes with dedicated Notes app for handwriting, and the dual SIM functions also gets an accompanying Hot Key for quick switch between networks.

The LG G Pro Lite is coming in Black or White to Latin America as soon as this month,  followed by markets in Asia, Russia, China, India and the Middle East. What, you didn't think such a handset would make a cameo stateside, did you?

They should have included quadcore mediatek processor, in place of Dual core one, then this would have been a good option in low midrange.........

Buy a regular LG G Pro (E988) for $582. The best part is that you get a free flip cover. No spare battery and charger though.

I got the E988 the other day for £365, i think that's a bargain, my only gripe is the loudspeaker is poor. I am a bit jealous of the stylus though, the QuickMemo would be better with it. Why though LG - 4.1.2, what a joke ting!

I remember when having dual loud speakers was a necessary for a mid to high end device back in 2006-2007. not an advantage to brag about

Without the LG logo, you might think its a Samsung galaxy note. If LG will market it vigorously, they will have a better future.
