LG G Pro Lite Dual smartphone rumored to launch in mid-October

Over the years, we've heard a lot of awkward smartphone names – names that just don't sound right and are a chore to pronounce in their entirety. And the newest one to make us giggle upon reading it is the LG G Pro Lite Dual, attached to a new smartphone, allegedly headed to select markets in Europe. 

As the name suggests, this is a lower-cost, dual-SIM variant of the company's former flagship, namely the LG Optimus G Pro. It sports a similar, 5.5-inch IPS display with a very slim bezel around it, according to the source, but the exact resolution hasn't been mentioned. Processing power is delivered by a dual-core SoC of unknown make and model. Further specs include an 8MP main camera and a 3140mAh battery. 

On the software side, it is said that the LG G Pro Lite Dual has borrowed some of the goodies found on the LG G2 flagship, including Knock-On, Guest Mode, and Q Slide. Interestingly, the source claims that the handset is equipped with 2-way speakers – speakers with drivers dedicated to a specific frequency band, but they might be referring to the earphones included in the set (or we could be just lost in translation). 

The LG G Pro Lite Dual release date is said to be penciled for mid-October. Russia should be among the markets to get it, where it will retail for roughly $400.

UPDATE: More details about the LG G Pro Lite Dual have surfaced, courtesy of the very same source. Apparently, the smartphone will come with a stylus, making it a potential alternative to Samsung's Galaxy Note handsets. The screen resolution is said to be 540 by 960 pixels, which is underwhelming and barely passable for a display of that size. Furthermore,  the dual-core processor of the device ticks at 1GHz and is backed by 1GB of RAM. There are 8GB of storage on board, with the option to expand it with the use of a microSD card slot. Android 4.1.2 will come out of th box, and the unit measures 76.9 by 150.2 by 9.48 millimeters.

Wow looks like LG is really stepping up their game. All they need to do is stop copying Samsung and develop a better looking Android skin (the current one is horrible, even worse than Touchwiz).
