LG G2 mini gets official confirmation

LG seems rather fond of those pre-announcements right now and to be honest, it's quite refreshing seeing a manufacturer largely unconcerned about the impact of a big launch. The latest piece of kit to be given the official nod by the Korean giant is the LG G2 mini.

It seems to follow a growing trend of smaller phones packing fairly strong specifications (like the Xperia Z1 Compact from Sony for example). In this case, LG has matched its 5.2-inch LG G2 from late last year with a smaller companion coming in a 4.7 inches.

The processor drops a notch in the smaller phone, including either a Snapdragon 400 or Nvidia Tegra 4i chip instead of the Snapdragon 800 processor found in the large phone and the screen resolution is also lower, this time using a qHD display with 540 x 960 resolution.

But you still get an 8-megapixel camera, Android 4.4 KitKat and the same suite of in-house software you would find on the standard G2. 8GB of storage, a microSD slot and a removable 2,440mAh battery finish things off, with a dual-SIM slot offered in some markets.

The phone will start to roll out in March for an as yet unconfirmed price, kicking off in Russia, but hitting the rest of Europe not long after. If the price is right, could be a decent option.
