When leading smartphone makers, that is Samsung, HTC and Sony one by one were releasing miniaturized versions of their flagship phones, we were left to wonder if LG would take the same path. A mini version of the LG G2 has been vaguely mentioned a few times already, but we had no confirmation regarding neither LG G2 Mini existence nor other details such as possible announcement date or pricing.
LG G2 Mini will have buttons on the back…
Today we got the answers to both questions thanks to a teaser image posted on LG’s Facebook page. Yes, the LG G2 Mini is a real deal and the phone will be announced on February 24th at MWC in Barcelona. The images is a collage of four photos, each showing two items in different sizes. The last photo presents the LG G2 and a smaller phone next to it. The photos are in black and white but, interestingly, the smaller objects are accented in pink. Does it have any deeper meaning? It’s hard to say at the moment, but it sure looks intriguing.
As for the LG G2 Mini, its specs and features are still a mystery. According to the rumors, the phone could come with a 4.7-inch display, hopefully with 720p resolution, though a 540 x 960 panels seems possible too. Other speculations put a Snapdragon 800 SoC and 2 GB of RAM inside the handset, neither of which have been backed by serious evidence, though. The only thing we can be certain about at the moment is that the G2 Mini will have buttons on the back. For the rest we will have to wait another week and a half.
