First LG G3 S (G3 mini) images pop up in China
Courtesy of China's telecommunications certification body, Tenaa (alike to the US FCC), the snaps don't paint an overly interesting picture, as the G3 S appears to be an exact copy of the G3 in terms of design. Not that this is surprising. In any case, what you're looking at is the China Mobile-bound version of the G3 S, and we're told that it'll be called the LG G3 Beat.
Looking closely, the G3 S, again, proves to be a miniaturized copy of its bigger sibling -- we still have a set of rear-placed keys and loudspeaker, and a novel infrared focus assist beam. The only difference we've spotted is the LED flash on board -- unlike the G3's two-tone LED lamp, the G3 S will have to make do with a single one.
For those who are wondering, the G3 S will most likely feature a 5-inch, 720 x 1280 pixel resolution screen, a Snapdragon 400 processor, 2GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel rear shooter. According to specifications posted by Tenaa, the device measures in at 137.75 x 69.60 x 9.99 mm and weighs 134 grams. The G3 S, like the G3, will also run a skinned version of Android 4.4 KitKat, courtesy of LG. We expect the LG G3 S to be widely available, including in the States, though we don't yet know exactly when LG will take the veil off officially.
