LG reveals G2 mini in all its glory

Don’t look to the LG G2 mini if you want a small phone with high-end specs. Why do companies have to super-size everything? Sony spoiled us with its Xperia Z1 Compact, a 4.3-inch phone with powerful features to boot. So we had our fingers crossed for an awesomely specced G2 mini too.

Alas, a mini phone with as much power as the G2 it’s not. The smartphone has a large 4.7-inch screen with an unexpected 540 x 960p low resolution. Depending on the market in which it is being sold, LG will be dispatching it with a quad core Snapdragon 400 or Nvidia Tegra 4i processor.

The company will also be making it available in a dual SIM version. There’s 1GB of RAM onboard and the latest Google mobile OS, Android KitKat. You get 8GB of memory and microSD card support too. A 8MP camera is placed on the back panel, while a 1.3MP one sits above the touchscreen.

Lastly, a 2440mAh battery will be powered the device. If it weren’t for the smaller size, the G2 mini would be barely distinguishable from it larger sibling, from the outside. The G2 has a 5.2-inch display, 2GB RAM, a 13MP rear camera and a quad core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 chip.
