LG have announced another variant of the G3, the G3 A. It is a weird device, that is smaller and lower spec’d than the G3, but larger and higher spec’d than the G3 S. It seems to be a Korean specific model so I shouldn’t be too upset about it really.
It’s basically has the spec of the LG G2, with the design of the G3, the laser assisted camera, Micro SD slot, a removable battery, the rather intuitive rear buttons and it’s a tiny bit smaller.

The phone is SK Telecom specific at the moment, but it shows that LG really don’t mind diluting a brand in a Samsung kind of style. Personally I’m happy with my G3, but many people have been put off because of the size, so a smaller version would be useful. Smaller but not lower spec, this G3 A might just be the one as the G3 S was quite a bit lower spec’d.
