While other companies are coming up with shorter version of flagship devices with ether high end specs like the Xperia Z1 Compact or low end specs found on the mini versions like Galaxy S4 mini or HTC One mini, LG is trying something different and staying in between these two standards. Today LG announced the Mini version of their flagship device, the LG G2 and judging from its specs it looks like a pretty moderate device.
The LG G2 mini will be equipped with a 4.7-inch display supporting a resolution of qHD 540 x 960 with a pixels density of 234 pixels per inch which is rather a big scale down from the 5-inch 1080P display on the LG G2, It will also have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz scaled down from Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 found on the LG G2, while some variants of LG G2 mini will also be shipped with Nvidia Tegra4i chips. The LG G2 mini will have an 8MP rear shooter while a 1.3MP camera on the front, 1GB of RAM scaled down from 2GB of RAM found on the LG G2, 8GB of internal storage with an option of micro-SD card and a 2440mAh removable battery. Luckily the phone will be shipped with the latest version of Adroid Kitkat.
The LG G2 mini will still have the sleek design found on the LG G2 and will have it volume and power buttons on the back of the cover. Some of you were probably wishing for the same hardware found on the LG G2 to be included in the LG G2 mini, but the company has decided not to do so, still there will be a huge price different because of the hardware used in the smartphone and will probably be a mid-ranged smartphone supporting Android Kitkat which is a plus point.
There will also be a Dual-Sim version of LG G2 mini and the release date for it will be March for Russia and April for the rest of the countries including Asia, Middle East, Latin America and Europe.
