South Korean consumer electronics giant LG officially released the mini flagship smartphone G3 Beat in India on Wednesday.

LG G3 Beat was originally unveiled in July this year. It sports a 5.0-inch HD (1280x720p) IPS screen and comes packed with Android v4.4.2 KitKat OS out-of-the-box.

Under the hood, it comes loaded with 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU backed by 1GB RAM, 8GB (expandable), and 2,540mAh battery.

On camera front, it houses an 8.0-megapixel camera with Laser Auto-focus feature.

This unique feature measures the distance between the subject and the camera using a laser beam, enabling quick capture of good quality photos even under low-light conditions.

No other smartphone in the market boasts this kind of camera technology, except its bigger sibling LG G3. On the front side, it packs a 1.3-megapixel camera.

"Mobile communications needs to serve the requirements of a growing segment of consumers who are looking for a balance between style, design, features, and great performance, combined together at a favorable price," said Swoon Koon, LG Electronics India MD.

"The LG G3 Beat represents our commitment to the mid-tier smartphone market that demands mature technology, proven performance, great innovation and an attractive price, all in a single device," he added.

The new LG G3 Beat has been made available across India for ₹25,000 starting today. Last week, online seller, Infibeam had listed the LG G3 Beat for ₹24,999.

For the uninitiated, flagship QHD display-based smartphone LG G3, has been already released in India for ₹47,990 (16GB) and ₹59,990 (32GB). [Full report, HERE]
