LG has formally announced the new G2 mini smartphone carrying the design and lineage of its G series of smartphones. New LG G2 mini carries the best features of the G2 smartphone. LG plans to make the 3G Dual SIM G2 mini version available in March for CIS countries, Asia, Middle East, Latin America, Europe and in its key markets including Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan. LG is yet to place a price tag on the new G2 mini.
Samsung and HTC have been competing for the mini version of flagship devices with Galaxy S4 mini and HTC One mini respectively. Last month Sony Mobile joined those companies with the Xperia Z1 Compact which is a mini version of the Xperia Z1. The objective of the mini versions appears to offer flagship like design and user interface in a smaller, relatively affordable form factor.
The LG G2 mini brings along a 4.7-inch IPS LCD display with 960x540 pixel resolution. LG will offer two different versions of the G2 - one with quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 and another with a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4i mobile SoC. LG will integrate 1 GB RAM to power the device and offer 8 GB on-board storage with memory card slot. At the rear, G2 mini has an 8 megapixel camera at the back and a 1.3 megapixel camera in the front.
LG G2 mini runs on Android 4.4 KitKat update out of the box which is amazing for the buyers. The 9.8 mm thick G2 mini weighs 121 grams including the 2440 mAh removable battery. LG will offer the G2 mini in 4G LTE version and NFC chip as well for select markets.
The LG G2 mini will be sold in Titan Black, Lunar White, Red and Gold (for select markets) colour options.
LG G2 mini competes with the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini being sold for Rs 21,000 approximately and HTC One mini being sold for Rs 26,800 approximately.
