LG G2 Mini – small form, mid range G Series phone launched in Korea:


lg g2 mini officially announced

LG have officially launched their first compact phone in the LG G series, the LG G2 Mini.

 LG G2 Mini:

First announced in February at MWC in Barcelona, the  LG G2 Mini is exactly the same as it’s big brother, LG G2 just in a compact form factor.

That being said, it retains the 1.2GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm processor, 4.7 inch qHD IPS (960×540) display, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, 2440mAh removable battery and Android OS 4.4 Kit Kat. The only difference is that the entire device measures just 129.6 x 66.0 x 9.8mm and weighs 121g.

You’d think that with a smaller, more compact size it would lose features, but not the  LG G2 Mini. It still features the LG innovative Rear Key, first featured on it’s big brother, as well as the minimalist style which set the G Series apart from the competition.

The  LG G2 Mini will also come installed with Knock Code™, LG’s new security feature. This allows you to power on and unlock your device by inputting a personalised “knock” pattern on the screen. As it can feature a combination of two to eight taps, it gives you a total of 88,000 combinations, making your device secure.

The compact G2 mini offers a combination of design, hardware and UX features previously unavailable in its class, making it a very attractive option for mid-tier markets,

said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

With the G2 mini, our objective is to allow a much larger consumer base to be able to experience the key benefits of the G2 UX in a smaller form factor. And to that end, we’re confident we’ve succeeded with the G2 mini.

To be compatible with diverse markets, the  LG G2 Mini will be available in 3G and 4G/LTE, in single SIM and Dual SIM. All versions will be available in four colours: Titan Black, Lunar White with Red and Gold (depending on market). Roll out will start in CIS countries in early April, closely followed by release to European, Asian, Latin American, Middle Eastern and African markets. More details will be released in the next few weeks, at which point we will let you know more.
