Notably, the online retailer's listing clearly notes that the handset will be available on September 13, indicating that the official India launch of the LG G3 Beat will be around the same time in mid-September.
It must be pointed out that the LG G3 Beat might not officially arrive in India with the price quoted by the online retailer. Much like the LG G3 Beat, the flagship G3 was also available for pre-order on third party retailer ahead of any official announcement.
(In Comparison: LG G3 vs. LG G3 Beat)
Initially announced in July, the LG G3 Beat features the same 'Floating Arc Design' as seen on the LG G3, featuring smooth curved sides and gradually tapered edges. The highlight of the G3 Beat is its 8-megapixel rear camera which comes with the Laser Autofocus feature seen on the G3, while there is a 1.3-megapixel front camera as well.
As the LG G3's mid-tier variant, the G3 Beat comes with a 5-inch IPS display offering 294ppi pixel density. The company has dropped the screen resolution from QHD (1440x2560 pixel) on LG G3 to the considerably lower HD resolution of 720x1280 pixels on the LG G3 Beat.
The smartphone runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat much like the G3, and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clubbed with 1GB of RAM. It comes with 8GB of inbuilt storage with microSD card expansion and is backed by a 2540mAh battery.
Some of the preloaded software features on the G3 Beat from the flagship include Touch and Shoot, which allows a touch anywhere on the display to focus and shoot; Gesture Shot, which begins automatic three-second countdown before the picture is snapped by just a hand gesture; Smart Keyboard, and QuickMemo+, an overhauled note taking app.
Connectivity options on the LG G3 Beat include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPRS/ EDGE, A-GPS, GLONASS, NFC, Micro-USB, 3G and 4G LTE support. The phone measures 137.7x69.6x10.3mm and weighs 134 grams. It is available in Metallic Black, Silk White, and Shine Gold colour variants.
