LG G3 S (G3 Mini) gets official images from Russian retailer

LG logoThe LG G3 S got its user manual leaked a few hours ago. Then it came out that it was certified for sale by the relevant Chinese authorities, a process which yielded a few low-quality pictures of the device.

However, it turns out that the second biggest independent phone seller in Russia, Svyaznoy, already has the G3 S up for pre-order on its website.

Its page comes complete with a full spec list, as well as pricing and the first ever official renders of the new phone.

The LG G3 S therefore has a 5-inch 720p touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera, and a 1.3 MP front camera. The rear snapper has a single-LED flash, but it also appears to keep the bigger G3's laser focus system. The rear-mounted buttons are pretty much identical to those of the G3 too.

The new phone is powered by a 2540 mAh battery, and things are run by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, which is paired with 1GB of RAM.

Internal storage space sits at 8GB, though it's expandable through microSD cards. The model that's due to be sold in Russia has 3G support (no LTE) and dual-SIM functionality. That said, given its history, LG will probably have a few different SKUs for different parts of the world, so do expect at least one of those to feature 4G.

The G3 S runs Android 4.4 KitKat from the get-go, and its dimensions are 137.75 x 69.6 x 10.3 mm.

Its price in Russia is going to be RUB 13,990 (or around $406 or €300 at the current exchange rates). For comparison's sake, note that the 'full size' G3 is sold in Russia for around RUB 29,990 ($871 or €644). So the G3 S seems to be a more decently priced midranger than, say, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini.

With this listing happening, we're expecting LG to make the G3 S official any day now.
