The LG Optimus G Pro may be getting a dual-SIM version called LG G Pro Lite Dual (now that's quite a mouthful). The rumor suggests the new device will keep the 5.5" True HD IPS+ display of 1080p resolution, but will demote the camera to 8MP resolution (still with BSI sensor).
It's not entirely clear why this model bears the "Lite" moniker, as the camera downgrade probably isn't enough to justify it alone. Unfortunately, there's no info on the chipset, but the software will offer many of the features we saw on the LG G2, including KnockOn (wake device by double-tapping), Guest mode and QSlide (floating mini-apps with optional transparency).
The rumor also adds that the battery will be unchanged at 3,140mAh and there will be a "Dual Speaker" that has improved sound reproduction for both high and low frequencies (but it doesn’t sound like we're talking about stereo speakers).
According to Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru who published the rumor, the LG G Pro Lite Dual will hit Russia in mid-October at RUR13,000 ($400) or about half the current price of the LG Optimus G Pro in the country.
The HTC One Max will probably have a dual-SIM version too, we might have a dual-SIM phablet battle on our hands.
Thanks to Freddie for sending this in!
