The new budget phone swaps the G Pro's internals for lower grade components and adds in a stylus

Most of the attention LG has been getting lately has been for its premium devices such as the G2 and G Flex smartphones, or the G Pad 8.3 tablet. But the Korean company isn't putting all of its eggs in one basket by ignoring the developing world and their more modest purchasing power. The G Pro Lite will soon be making its way to emerging markets and should provide an interesting new option in the budget Android category.

The new smartphone features a 5.5-inch 960 x 540 display, a 1 GHz dual-core Media Tek MT6577 processor, 1 GB of RAM, Android 4.1.2, an 8 MP back-facing camera, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, a stylus, support for dual SIMs, and a 3,140 mAh battery.

While the internals are certainly a step down from the original G Pro, the Lite maintains many of the software features such as LG's Knock On, Q Slide, and Q Translator. The addition of the stylus also means this device offers a little more flexibility than most in the category.

The G Pro Lite is expected to be released in Asia, Russia, China, India, Middle East, and South America later this month. Prices have not yet been announced.
