LG to unveil the compact G2 mini at MWC

LGE_G2+MINI+RELEASE+02LG will go to the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 to showcase their first ever “compact smartphone.
LG is getting out ahead of the pre-MWC speculation by simply releasing details and pictures of the upcoming device for all to see before getting a true introduction at the show next week. Borrowing the name and design from its larger sibling, the LG G2 Mini is set to be a smaller, mid-range version of the flagship that has brought a good amount of attention to LG in recent months.

Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO of LG Mobile said:

“The G2 mini is all about bringing the best user experience of the G2 to a more compact, mid-tier device, giving millions of customers the opportunity to benefit from the LG premium experience. This device offers the perfect balance of modern design and practical UX in a compact package without compromising performance.”

You’ll notice most of the talk is about the “experience” of the LG G2, not the exact speeds and feeds — these aren’t the G2’s specs squeezed into a smaller frame.
