LG Electronics has revealed a compact version of its flagship product G2. The new phone — G2 Mini — will be launched at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 in Barcelona, Spain, later this month. This mid-tier segment phone is aimed at consumers around the globe.
“The G2 mini is all about bringing the best user experience of the G2 to a more compact, mid-tier device, giving millions of customers the opportunity to benefit from the LG premium experience,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “This device offers the perfect balance of modern design and practical UX in a compact package without compromising performance.”
With a 4.7-inch 1080p IPS display G2 Mini comes with an option of choosing between a Snapdragon 400 or Nvidia Tegra 4i chipset, both with 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Quad-Core processor and 1GB RAM. On the other hand G2 has a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 with 2GB RAM.
The LG G2 mini has an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera. It is powered by Android 4.4 Kit Kat, and has a 2,440mAh removable battery.
The phone will start rolling out in March with the 3G Dual SIM model in CIS countries followed soon after by major markets in the Middle East, Latin America and Asia. LG has not yet shared the price of the phone.
