We already know LG will launch the G Pro 2 smartphone/tablet hybrid during Mobile World Congress, but now the company has hinted it’ll have something a little smaller to show us too. It has posted an image on its official mobile Facebook page, which shows a collection of large and small items next to each other. The final picture is an LG G2 phone next to a mysterious miniature device.
Just in case we haven’t already worked it out, it says we’ll “Experience the Mini” at Mobile World Congress from 24 February. LG’s G2 is a big-screen device, with its display measuring 5.2-inches, so a mini version wouldn’t be all that unusual. A G2 Mini would also fit a growing trend in the industry, as we’ve seen smaller versions of the HTC One, the Galaxy S4, and the Xperia Z1.
LG hasn’t told us anything about the Mini’s possible specs, so we must rely on a few rumours to give us some hints. If the gossip is accurate, we should see a 4.7-inch display with a 720p resolution. Hardly small, but certainly smaller than the G2. The processor could be another Snapdragon 800, just like its big brother, plus an 8-megapixel camera may be fitted to the back.
On the subject of the phone’s backside, LG’s teaser image shows the G2 Mini will have the same volume and power-on controls mounted below the camera lens.
If these specs are correct, the LG G2 Mini is one to look forward to, and as MWC starts in a little over a week, there’s not long to go until we see the phone for real.
