LG G2 mini rolling out from April

It launched back in February and was talked about as a possible release for March. But the LG G2 mini isn't going to be with us until April at the earliest now.

Ok, that's not long off, but the April date doesn't actually apply to the UK. According to LG, Russia will be the first to see this miniature smartphone, followed by Asia, Africa and Europe. So we may be well into the summer before it sneaks onto UK shelves.

The phone itself hasn't changed, which means we are still looking at either a Snapdragon 400 or Nvidia Tegra 4i chip instead of the Snapdragon 800 processor found in the large phone plus a rather middling 960 x 540 qHD display. But you do get an 8-megapixel camera, Android 4.4 KitKat and the same suite of in-house software you would find on the standard G2, along with 8GB of storage, a microSD slot and a removable 2,440mAh battery. So not too bad if the price is right.

LG has also confirmed that there will be several variations of the G2 mini, including 3G and 4G models, single and dual-SIM devices and several colours, including Titan Black, Lunar White, Red and Gold. We would guess a 4G single-SIM for the UK when it lands, with pricing still to be confirmed for these shores.
