LG G2 Lite coming soon, seems to be a rebranded LG L Fino
Although we now have LG G3 smartphones (including non-flagship models like the G3 s and G3 Stylus), it looks like LG isn’t done with the G2 series yet. The company is getting ready to release an LG G2 Lite - as the handset is already listed by several Brazilian retailers.

The G2 Lite (model number LG D295) is smaller than the G2 mini, while also offering less advanced features. For starters, its display is a 4.5-inch one with 480 x 800 pixels, so we can already conclude that we’re dealing with an entry-level handset here. The G2 Lite further features dual SIM capabilities, a quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 (MSM-8212) processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 1900 mAh battery. The smartphone has an 8 MP rear camera, and a VGA front-facing camera. It seems to us that this G2 Lite is nothing more than a rebranded LG L Fino, which was officially announced last month.

The G2 Lite should be available in Brazil pretty soon, running Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. It will cost 615 Brazilian Reais, which means about $269. Mind you, smartphone prices in Brazil are higher than in most other countries (for example, last year’s Motorola Moto G costs around $300 there). The G2 Lite / LG L Fino will be available in other markets in the near future, though you shouldn't expect to see it in North America.

And everyone said Samsung spams the market with models... Looks like LG is doing the same.

The design of these phones, the G2 and G3 look reallllly good though. Ravishingly sexy and clean.

they look good but recycling the design on every single phone makes the design lose its appeal and it becomes nth special anymore

Pretty much every site I looked at said their L and F-series this year was very smooth, even though they had very little ram. But I guess you tested them more?

they run smooth because 99% of review they test new smartphone. just download few apps and use them about a month and you will see if they are smooth.

lg has released so many midrangers in the past few months and not even one of them is better than the l9 ii which costs 140 euro with taxes... it's a shame.

It's actually a smart move on LG's part. The smartphone war won't be won at the high end of the market. It'll be won at the low to mid range. That's where all of thd new smartphone owners and "developing" countries come in.

I would like to see a "compact" version of G2 or G3 instead of a light version. Why is Sony the only OEM who is able to offer such devices?

because they think they can fool customers forever into thinking that a g2 mini is really a smaller g2, an s5 mini really a smaller s5 etc. but the time will come when those hideous minis will fail.
