LG’s Newest Smartphone Combines the Large Display and Large Capacity Battery of LG Optimus G Pro with the Newest Multimedia Features
SEOUL, Oct. 10, 2013 — To fulfill the needs of practical smartphone users who want to enjoy the convenience of a large display, LG Electronics (LG) today introduced to the world its latest device, LG G Pro Lite, with a 5.5-inch display and unique UX fea-tures.

The phone is also designed with an ultra-narrow bezel for an incredible edge-to-edge viewing experience, slim design for optimal one-hand grip and convenient UX features shared with LG’s other premium G Series smartphones.
“With LG G Pro Lite, we are introducing a competitive device to the masses in the growing large smartphone market,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The market for smartphones with displays over five inches will continue to grow and LG is in a great position to capture these new customers when they’re ready to move up from their current phones.”
The Stylus Pen that is included with the LG G Pro Lite increases the smartphone’s usability. The Stylus Pen allows for quick and accurate handwriting and can be stored conveniently in a slot at the top of the phone. And for customers who are increasingly turning to their smartphones for entertainment, LG equipped the LG G Pro Lite with dual speakers for excellent audio performance with or without headphones. What’s more, LG’s latest smartphone maximizes user convenience with a Dual SIM feature and a dedicated Hot Key to make switching between two SIM cards easier than ever before.
LG G Pro Lite comes with LG’s practical and convenient UX that features all the benefits of LG’s premium G Series, G Pro and G2. KnockON powers on the G Pro Lite with two taps to the display, Pause and Resume Recording allows for the recording of short snippets of video which can then be viewed as one continuous file, QSlide controls up to three different apps in one window, QuickMemo gives users the ability to instantly jot memos or notes from any screen without having to open a separate application and QTranslator instantly translates words and sentences from images captured with the smartphone’s camera.

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

more core does not means better perform
and the mediatek quadcore processor most are cortex-a7
i think this one will having dualcore cortex a9
which has better perform

Sorry but this article says otherwise. Everyone is using Mediateks quad cores now. Face it.

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!

Yes.... In Brazil companies like to earn more! =/

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.
