Android smartphone buyers who fell in love with LG’s newly launched G3 but would like something smaller yet similar, should know that an LG G3 S is in the making – or a G3 mini. Phone Arena reports that the LG G3 S user manual has been found online, providing more details about the unreleased phone, including pictures, but also specs and features.

The G3 S will not be a flagship device like its bigger brother. The handset will sport a 5-inch display with 1280 x 720 resolution, 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, microSD support, 8-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 2,540 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat on board with LG’s software additions on top.

Design-wise, G3 S potential buyers should expect a display taking up most part of the front side, a removable battery, laser-powered auto-focus for the main camera and buttons on the back side of the device. In other words, the G3 S will be very similar to the G3.

While the user manual for the handset has leaked, it’s not clear when the G3 S will be available for purchase, or how much it’s supposed to cost. The publication notes that LG is expected to sell the handset in various international markets, including U.S., where AT&T will have it in stock, and in China, where it’ll be known as the LG G3 Beat.

The G3 S manual is available at the source link below.
