LG G2 mini’s official unveiling was a little light on details, but now we have the full picture and it’s a bit confusing. The G2 mini has three major versions, which differ in several key components.
The first one is an LTE version powered by Snapdragon MSM8926 chipset (quad-core Cortex-A7 @ 1.2GHz, Adreno 305). This one will have an 8MP camera on the back, Cat. 4 LTE (150Mbps downlink) and NFC.
Then there’s the 3G dual-SIM version, powered by a Snapdragon MSM8226 instead (same specs, different modem). This one has an 8MP camera too, 21Mbps HSDPA and no NFC.
Finally, there’s a second LTE version, specifically for Latin America. This one isn’t powered by Qualcomm at all, but instead uses NVIDIA Tegra 4i (quad-core Cortex-A9 @ 1.7GHz). It has a 13MP camera, Cat. 3 LTE (100Mbps) and again, no NFC.
All three versions weight the same, 121g. The first model to roll out will be the dual-SIM 3G one, launching in CIS countries this March. The other versions will launch soon after that in Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East.
The compact smartphone will be available in a variety of colors: Titan Black, Lunar White, Red, Gold. The selection is region dependent though.
The LG G2 mini will be at the MWC so we’ll get to meet it in person in just a few days!
