LG has already confirmed the G2 Mini will be part of its line-up at Mobile World Congress next week, but hadn’t given us any information on its specification. Now, it has provided an almost complete feature list, so we know exactly what to expect at the Barcelona show.
First, it’s important to know LG’s definition of “mini” probably isn’t the same as yours, for the G2 Mini has a 4.7-inch screen. That’s the same size as the HTC One, and nearly half-an-inch larger than several other mini phones, such as the recently announced Sony Xperia Z1 Compact.
However, while the screen is quite sizable, the remainder of the specs aren’t quite so impressive. The display’s resolution is 960×540, the same as the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, which shows the market LG is aiming at with its new phone.
The processor is a Snapdragon 400 running at 1.2GHz, with 1GB of RAM, plus 8GB of storage memory. A MicroSD card slot can be used to increase this number. LG has fitted an 8-megapixel camera to the phone’s rear panel, plus a set of the same controls found on the rage-topping G2 can be found below it. LG has also added 4G connectivity, and installed Android KitKat, ensuring the phone is bang up to date.
Although we know have most of the specs, we don’t have a final UK release date or a price for the G2 Mini yet. LG will probably talk more about this during MWC, which begins on 24 February.
