It’s been five long months since LG unveiled its latest flagship, the G2, and now we’re hearing the first rumors that the South Korean company may be preparing the release a “mini” variant of the 5.2-inch handset. The report comes from Greek site TechBlog.gr, and cites unsourced “exclusive information,” so we’re definitely take this rumor with a grain of salt.

The LG G2 hasn’t posted the crazy sales figures Samsung’s flagships have, but the company may be able to turn things around if it releases a cheaper, slightly smaller variant without compromising on specs. According to TechBlog.gr that’s exactly what LG has planned with the G2 mini, which will apparently come equipped with a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 4.7-inch 1080p display.

That’s not much of a drop down from the flagship G2, which features a 5.2-inch display, a Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM and a 3,000mAh battery—though it’s possible the alleged G2 mini could cut costs by downsizing the battery. If LG does manage to fit the G2’s specs into a smaller device for a better price the company may have a hit on its hands.
