LG G2 mini global rollout officially begins this month - or in April?

Wondering when the LG G2 mini will be available? Well, wonder no more, because LG just announced that the smartphone is hitting shelves before the end of this month, first starting in the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), Europe, Latin America, and Southeast Asia.

Depending on the “needs of local customers”, the G2 mini will have three variants: 3G-only, LTE, and Dual SIM. On the CPU side, the handset will come with either a quad-core Snapdragon 400 clocked at 1.2GHz, or a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4i clocked at 1.7GHz.

As we told you last month, when the G2 mini was first unveiled, the smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, and offers the latest Knock Code screen unlocking feature. It’s only a mid-range device, though, featuring a 4.7 inch IPS display with 540 x 960 pixels, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory.

LG didn’t say how much the G2 mini costs. Anyway, we know that customers will be able to buy it in four color versions: white, black, gold, or red. You can see the white model in the slideshow below, and you can also check out our G2 mini hands-on here.

Update: LG's press release in English states that the G2 mini global rollout will begin in April, but the original article, in Korean, clearly said "this month."

Who would want the G2 Mini? The specs are just horrible and it is overpriced just because it looks exactly like its superior counterpart. I'm sticking with the G2, it's a proper smartphone.

1099 reais (478 dollars) 3G version and 1299 (565 dollars) 4G version here in Brazil. We can find LG G2, Nexus 5 and Optimus G Pro on sales with these prices frequently. It's almost 2 times the Moto G price here.
