LG G3 A announced as a smaller G3 that doesn't feature a Quad HD screen

The G3 A is larger and better equipped than the G3 s, but smaller and not as advanced as the G3 (which, as you may know, is one of the world’s first handsets to offer a display with 1440 x 2560 pixels).
The new smartphone sports a 5.2-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, and is powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.26 GHz. It has the same 13 MP rear camera with laser auto focus that we can find on the 5.5-inch G3, and a similar 2.1 MP front-facing camera. Other features include Android 4.4 KitKat, LTE-A, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2,610 mAh battery. In addition to all these, the G3 A comes with a new and unique software feature that allows users to control some of its functions with a wrist move. Apparently, you can assign various functions to this move, including turning off alarms, and controlling the music player.
There are two G3 A versions: a black and a white one, both having a “metallic 3D” pattern on the rear case. It doesn’t look like LG has plans to release the G3 A outside of Korea, but we’ll let you know if we hear anything on this.

The only good part here is the girl. Waste of space for everything else.

Is it just me that thinks these lower spec mini versions tends to destroy brand imagine and market share? I wouldn't be surprised a large share of uninformed customers will mistake minis for full G3s and S5s with a cheaper cost, realise they are not as good and lose faith in the whole product line altogether and just think it's easier to buy either a iPhone 5 or 5c. The android crowd is not doing themselves any favours to make it complicated for the average consumer. Apple does this well and that's why the vast majority of uninformed consumers bit. People reading this site are informed, but we are frankly the gross minority. KISS....

If LG prices it right, this would be a very nice phone for many people. This phone has more appeal to me than an S5 mini (which has zero appeal). IMO, LG is filling in their range of smartphones quite intelligently.

Lol, this is just an LG G2 with a smaller battery. However, if they get the pricing right (~$500) it could be alright...

Unfortunately, LG G3 A is priced at 704,000 won (approximately $680)

Not a smaller battery. It has the same battery as the Korean version. I see only OIS+ and the laser autofocus comapred to the Korean G2. Correct me if I'm wrong.
