LG Will Launch 3 Different G2 Mini Handsets


The LG G2 mini was officially announced yesterday, although the manufacturer refrained from giving out detailed information. Today, the company has shed light on three separate versions of the smartphone that it plans to launch in various markets, including two LTE-equipped models.

To begin with, the G2 mini will be available in a standard 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 variant, which also packs Cat. 4 LTE support. This device will also feature an 8-megapixel camera on the back and NFC connectivity — while the rest of the hardware will remain unchanged.

Then there’s another LTE variant which runs on the NVIDIA Tegra 4i quad-core chipset, with a CPU clock speed of 1.7 GHz. This model will pack a 13-megapixel camera on the back and feature support for Cat. 3 LTE. However, it will lack NFC support, and will be targeted specifically towards Latin American markets.

The third G2 mini variant will only support 3G (21Mbps HSDPA) networks, but it will have dual SIM card slots. It shares the same Snapdragon 400 chip as the first model, but without the LTE modem. This model will also lack NFC and sport an 8-megapixel camera on the back.

The dual SIM 3G variant of the G2 mini will first make its way to CIS regions in March, while the other two are slated to launch in countries of Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America subsequently.
