We haven’t heard word directly from LG just yet, but it appears that the LG G2 mini and its specs are now official. The company already confirmed that the smaller version of its G2 was going to be unveiled during Mobile World Congress next week, and now we have a list of the specs that the phone will offer. Unfortunately, they’re going to be disappointing for anyone who was hoping for flagship innards.
Unlike the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact, which has specs that are just as good as the Xperia Z1, the G2 mini makes a lot of sacrifices. It will reportedly come equipped with a 4.7-inch display with a relatively low 960 x 540-pixel resolution, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage that can be expanded with a microSD card, an 8-megapixel camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter and 4G support. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and features a Guest Mode option, should you decide to lend it to your children without the fear they’ll muddy anything up.
According to GSMInfo, the G2 mini will launch in the Netherlands this April in two colors, black and white, though from the image above we can see that a gold hue and a red option will also be available. LG did not reveal pricing or additional markets. We’ll work to bring you a full hands-on and all of the final details next week during Mobile World Congress.
TechnoBuffalo reached out to LG to confirm the specs but a spokesperson was not immediately available.
