To put things into perspective, G2, LG's flagship from last year, is a tad taller (138.5 mm), a tad wider (70.9 mm), a tad slimmer (8.9 mm) and a tad heavier (143 grams). "Smartphone manufacturers cannot ignore this growing segment of consumers who want the best balance of looks, features, performance and, of course, price", says LG CEO Dr. Jong-seok Park. "The LG G3 Beat represents our commitment to the mid-tier smartphone market that demands mature technology, proven branding, great innovation and attractive price, all in a single device". As you can see from the image above, it looks like its bigger brother.

Microsoft: Nokia's Android X2 experiment ends, enter Windows Phone | ZDNet
In addition to the portfolio already planned, we plan to deliver additional lower-cost Lumia devices by shifting select future Nokia X designs and products to Windows Phone devices. We expect to make this shift immediately while continuing to sell and support existing Nokia X products. In other words, Nokia X phones are basically a collector's item. Say what you will about Microsoft's handling of the Kin phone, which crashed quickly, but the company did pull the rip cord early. Elop continued to note in his memo that Microsoft and Nokia will be more high-end focused. He said: We expect these changes to have an impact to our team structure.
