LG Planning ‘G2 Mini’ With Quad-Core Snapdragon 800 CPU [Rumor]


LG is said to be working on a mini variant of the G2 that could compete with devices like the Galaxy S4 mini and the HTC One mini. It’ll be a smaller and slightly cheaper version of the flagship device with a 4.7-inch display, but sources say it’ll pack a high-end Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM.

The information was obtained by Greek website Techblog. We’re not familiar with its track record, so we advice you to take this rumor with a pinch of salt for now, but they claim that the G2 mini will “probably” be announced during CES 2014 in Las Vegas next month.

Rumored specifications include a 4.7-inch “TrueHD” (possibly 1080p) display, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, and 2GB of RAM. The G2 mini could be less like traditional “mini” devices then — which are typically midrange in terms of specifications — and simply a smaller version of a high-end device.

You can also expect it too look a lot like the G2, and it may even carry the rear-facing buttons that the G2 has made famous. There’s no word on its camera capabilities just yet, though.
