LG G2 Mini teaser image appears, to be announced on February 24

If there was ever any doubt that LG was working on a mini version of its flagship smartphone, it should be all gone now that we have the teaser image that you see below. The collage, which features an LG G2 handset along with a smaller, identically designed phone next to it, popped up on the company's Facebook page about an hour ago, so it can't be an elaborate fake.  What's more, the post is accompanied by the unequivocal tagline "Experience the MINI", which clearly states what kind of smartphone we should be expecting to see announced on February 24.

So yeah, judging by today's teaser, an LG G2 Mini is indeed to be announced at MWC. At this time, however, we aren't entirely sure how closely the smaller handset will resemble the LG G2. If rumors are to be believed, the LG G2 Mini might sport a 4.7-inch display, which means that it won't be so small after all. In fact, a recent FCC filing may have already revealed the phone's exact dimensions. Rumor also has it that the LG G2 mini could come with a Snapdragon 800 SoC and 2GB of RAM, just like the G2, although these claims haven't yet been backed by serious evidence. 

Whatever the case is, we should get the chance to take the LG G2 Mini for a spin in Barcelona, so if that's a phone you're excited about, stay tuned to our MWC 2014 coverage.


Thanks for the tip, Jefferson!

I would expect the flash to flash not the camera

Do it like Sony did it with the Xperia Z1 Compact : High-End specs in a small phone. No compromises please.

I've heard rumours that this would have qHD and dual-core. After Z1 Compact, it seems unlikely, though. Hopely they along with Samsung and HTC bring flagship specs to next Mini models.

Yeah, but that's what I've read. I think that when GS4 Mini came out, they designed that qHD device to compete with it. Hopely they have changed plans when Z1 Compact came out.

Comparing the 2 devices, the smaller one looks more like 4.3-4.5 rather than 4.7 mentioned in text

Considering the moto x is the same size as the z1 compact basically, I wouldn't base sizes off of screen size. That very well could be a 4.7 inch screen in a 4 inch body. The g2 had a 5.2 inch screen and it's much smaller than the Xperia Z1 overall.

Look at shoestrings.. It seems that the numbers are equal. Starfish, as well as large and small Perhaps the same could be asked of cup cakes. Everything shown, everything is equal. They differ only in size. I think Z1 Compact story is going to be repeated again. This time, with LG! _________ sry for bad English :) Its google's fault :D

I am also thinking the same... If NOT, LG better avoid that releasing that model...

Size almost like iphone 4/4s. I think screen size will be not more than 4.3".

LG proved with the G2 it is the best at putting the most screen in the smallest form. So for those wanting the 4.3 display because you think that ensures it will be one hand use and pocket friendly which is the purpose of a compact or mini, don't worry. Just look at the picture above and the size ratio to the G2. It is easy to see that they are giving that in this form factor, so hope for as big of screen as possible in that form factor shown. I really like the new Sony compact, but it is still as large as the moto x form factor with .5 difference in screen size. So lets hope for as big of a screen as possible in that form factor shown in the image, since it looks to be perfect one hand operation sized, based off the comparison to the G2 size. As long as they didn't skimp on specs anywhere, they will have a nice phone here.

Based on the image and using the phonearena size tool, the closest in size to this is the iphone 4s. If you look at where the top of the phone comes to in the 11:00 time display and match that up, then the size matches up with a 4s. So if this image is to scale and the phonearena size tool is to be trusted then it must be a 4.3 display since the total height of iphone 4s is only 4.5. Still getting a 4.3 display in a 4.5 to 4.6 form factor is good work.

I have G2 and is great...i guess that the mini will be a good solution for those that want something smaller. BUT the G2 is not that big for the screen size (5.2) entertaintheking.com/tech-news/2014/2/12/hich-smar​tphone-has-the-largest-screen-to-phone-size-percen​tage Ok,normally is big,but for all that offers(display etc) is small..

If this is shipping with a qHD screen, then I guess LG has done another flop. For me an HD screen, 8MP Camera with OIS and an S600 processor is already great. I'm really crossing my fingers for this. I wanted a G2 but it was too big for my hands. Hopefully, LG does it right this time. (expandable storage would be a huge plus) Also, I guess LG is able to fit that 4.7 inches of screen in a GS4 Mini-like body (I'm referring to the size) with ultra slim bezels.
