LG starts to tease G2 mini, highlights MWC 2014 launch

Now that the G Pro 2 has gone official in Korea, the conglomerate has started to tease us with another upcoming smartphone, the LG G2 mini which has been rumored since last year. The handset was recently spotted on the company’s official Facebook page alongside its larger sibling.

A small message was also provided below the image stating, ‘experience the mini.’ The company went on to indicate that the LG G2 mini will be unveiled at the upcoming MWC 2014 expo. You can take a look at the full-size image at this link. No other information about the smartphone was revealed, but we’re sure to find out more over the next few days, considering that the conglomerate loves to tease new information.

What we know so far is based on leaks and pure speculation. The LG G2 mini was initially rumored to be similar to Sony’s Z1 Compact, a no-compromise mid-range smartphone with high-end components. The device was said to come with a Snapdragon 800 processor and a 1080p display in a 4.7-inch form factor. However, a second report contradicted the specs with less beefy hardware such as a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor and a 540 x 960p touch panel.

The screen size is slated to be somewhere between 4.3 inches to 4.7 inches wide, the latter being a more likely option. And if the company wants to keep up with the competition, it will most likely throw in a 720p IPS HD panel. Apart from these features, we expect the LG G2 mini to have a 3000mAh Li-Polymer battery, 16GB and 32GB storage options, at least 1GB of RAM and a 13MP rear camera.

There’s hardly any concrete information on the LG G2 mini’s specifications, but as the above image highlights, the handset will look no different from its larger sibling.
