Once again LG has taken a leaf out of Samsung’s book and launched a new variant of its G3 flagship smartphone. It’s called the LG G3 A this time, and it’s about the size of the old G2—but with updated features, of course.

As a G2 under a new guise, the LG G3 A offers the same Snapdragon 800 processor that’s clocked at 2.26GHz, along with the same 2GB of RAM and 5.2-inch IPS LCD with 1080p resolution. But as a G3 variant, the G3 A has upped its rear camera’s resolution to 13 megapixels and equipped it with the laser autofocus. There’s also Android 4.4 KitKat preinstalled and the latest connectivity options.

For the other spinoffs, check out the LG G3 Beat and the leaked LG G3 Stylus. We also have a review of the original G3.

While it has borrowed a lot of software features first found in its siblings, the LG G3 A also has its own unique set of apps and interface controls. One of these is a wrist motion that can be used to, say, turn off the alarm or answer incoming calls. Security perks are also available, such as the phone setting off a warning when unplugged from its charger.

For now, the LG G3 A seems to be bound for Korea only. Pricing information and whether it’ll reach other markets or not remain unknown.
