It seems that LG is set to release a few different variants of the LG G3 this year with one of those being the LG G3 S. The G3 S appears to be a lower end model of the G3 or rather the mini version of it, with some different tweaks and features that have been left out when compared against the original LG G3 model that was recently released. According to this new leak there is a list of specs giving up some details on the device so we know what to expect out of it when LG launches the phone, as well as a rather nice looking press render of the the device design, which quite honestly looks no different from the regular LG G3 we already know.
The screen is a bit smaller at 5-inches, and it only comes with a screen resolution of 720P as opposed to the 2K screen we’re used to seeing on the G3 S’s bigger brother. The phone also apparently houses a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, and will be packed with 1GB of RAM instead. The G3 S is also running lower quality cameras with an 8MP camera on the rear and a 1.3MP camera on the front face although it will still carry the laser auto focus seen in the original G3, and powering everything inside is a 2,540 mAh battery to keep the device going.
Internal storage space is also set at a lower value, only housing 8GB of memory for users although a microSD card slot is built in so you can expand upon it if you wish, and we imagine many people might want to as 8GB in a phone is not that much these days and can fill up pretty quickly. In case you were wondering, the LG G3 S is going to be running on Android 4.4 Kit Kat right out of the box so it’ll be up to date for a little while, at least until L releases a short time later this year. Since the model that is posted up here is a model listed for the Russian market, users shouldn’t be alarmed that it only supports up to 3G networks, as a model bound for other regions could possibly support LTE like the original LG G3. If you live here in the states and you’re more keen on the regular G3, most major retailers already have them in stock as does Amazon’s website.
