It has almost become the norm for flagship Android devices to be followed by “mini” variants that are similar in design to their high-end siblings but lack in the performance department due to different and cost effective hardware. The LG G2 smartphone was released earlier this year and it received rave reviews. Over the past couple of weeks rumors have been floating around about a LG G2 mini that’s apparently slated for a CES 2014 release. While LG hasn’t said a word about this variant so far, purported LG G2 mini specifications have been spotted online.
Apparently the LG G2 mini’s specifications were spotted on a GFX benchmark site, which picked up an unknown LG device carrying model number LG-D410, it is believed to be the G2 mini. According to the website, the D-410 has a 1.2Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, a 540x960qHD display and it is likely to come with Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed. Additional specifications are not available at this point in time, but if the ones that have surfaced are true, then its quite obvious that the G2 mini is not going to be anywhere near the G2 in terms of performance. An announcement is expected at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014 in Las Vegas next month, so we’ll just have to wait until then.
