Are these the specs for the LG G2 mini?
According to the GFX site, the LG D-410 features a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8226 CPU under the hood. The screen offers a resolution of 540 x 960 (qHD) and while the early rumors had pointed to a 4.7 inch screen, a smaller panel (say 4.3 inches) seems likely. And yes, Android 4.4 is pre-installed. Clearly, this will not be the powerhouse that the LG G2 is.
There is no guarantee that this new device is the LG G2 mini, but whatever it is, we just might get a glimpse of it at CES next month.

Well, 4.3 inches seems more likely especially with a qhd resolution. Moto G is probably still going to be a much better deal though.

Hey LG, how 'bout a variant of the G2 with a good quality power button on the right side, and a screen which is not off-center. I am fine with Volume Buttons on the back though.

That's a bad idea.. Power button is perfectly placed and you don't use it 300 times a day.

Well, it should most likely be good on battery life then. It would still be preferable to have the resolution at 720 but I can live with it on my Droid Razr M provided the display stays at 4.3"
I hope they don't sacrifice the camera too much but preferable if they didn't screw with it at all. Minis shouldn't always be equated with low-end or budget.

This actually seems like a good phone, but compared to Z1 Mini, all other minis are outclassed.

LG made 2 descent phones for Google. I can personally say that the N4 had a very good resale value ($240 eBay 1yo, used), but owning a phone put out by an OS will spoil you with the updates.

New Nexus 4? Mostly same internals, slightly smaller and much cheaper. Would be nice.

If the G series was truly intended for high end phones, then that is highly likely to not be the G2 mini.
