LG G2 mini unveiled with a 4.7" display and Tegra 4i CPU, release date is pegged for March

LG has been teasing us for a while that a scaled-down version of its G2 flagship is in the works, and today the G2 mini is finally official. Just like with Samsung's "mini" versions, LG's munchkin seems to capitalize on the popularity of its larger namesake, as the actual specs are nothing to really write home about...

Dang..I was hoping this would be a Z1 Compact contender. Oh well.

Z1 Compact is in a league of its own.

Yep. It's the only "mini" that lives up to its bigger brother's name.

It's more of a Moto G contender.

And probably a smaller bloatware. But this has a bigger battery, slightly bigger screen, better cam, and expandable memory. For a lower mid-range, what's not to love?

this won't be in lower midrange. this will be midrange in terms of pricing all throughout. probably a tad more than the s4 mini

Low spec & ONLY 8gb, is pathetic NO phone should have les than 16GB of memory, this should have the same specs as the MASSIVE one. Also LG a 4.7" screen phone is not a mini, phone 4.3" to 4.5" is a mini phone.

So the LG G2 Mini is basically a LG L90 with smaller battery?! LOL. The L90 has the same specs, but comes with a larger battery and will probably cost less than the Mini.

So if Lg announced G pro 2, the L series and G 2 mini, then what are they going to announce during MWC?
