You will hardly find a flagship smartphone that doesn’t have a companion mini version. The LG G2 is no exception. After the device was launched this autumn, it gained high popularity among customers, so the release of its minimized version is rather predictable.
Report goes the LG G2 mini is in works already, though the device would have a different name by the time it launches. Generally speaking, the smartphone should boast features similar to its bigger sibling. The only characteristics that would differ the two are the screen size and dimensions. Unlike the full-size LG G2 with a 5.2” display, LG G2 mini screen is expected to measure 4.7” (similar to the much-talked-of HTC One).
Remember our recent post when we were comparing Sony Xperia Z1 vs Xperia Z1s specs? The situation with the LG G2 and its minimized version is identical. The LG G2 mini is expected to boast 720 x 1280 or 1080 x 1920 resolution, come with 2GB of RAM and be powered by quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, just like the original model.
According to Techblog, the device is likely to be officially announced during CES in LA, scheduled for January. Though it’s nothing but a rumor, let’s keep fingers crossed and wait for the LG G2 mini version launch.
Ahead of the LG G2 mini launch, let’s recollect the key LG G2 specs and features that make this device stand out.

Most impressive LG G2 features include:
Knockon. While knocking twice on the LG G2 display, the phone will wake up without the need of picking it up and pressing the power button. The smartphone senses the gesture and automatically turns the display on.
13MP camera. The LG G2 boasts a high resolution 13MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization, which allows you to capture sharp images and sharp videos. OIS technology will stabilize the focus while you hold the camera, so you will get less blur in photostand and less shaking in videos. The feature also comes in handy while taking pictures in dim light or at night. With OIS you’ll be able to capture amazing images in low-light conditions, even if you don’t hold the phone perfectly still.
Using Guest mode feature, you may personalize a user experience for yourself and your guest. In such a way, you may control which apps are available depending on the mode enabled.
There are no buttons left on the sides of the smartphone. Both the power and volume button have been moved to the rear of the device, just where your index finger should be while holding the phone.
Taking into consideration that the LG G2 mini should be similar to the original LG G2 in terms of specs, we may expect the device to boast all of the features mentioned above, and even more. Let’s wait and see what the South Korean company has prepared for us.
