LG G2 mini (LG D620) gets Bluetooth certification

LG G2 mini (LG D620) gets Bluetooth certification
Last month, well after speculation began that LG would introduce an LG G2 mini, we received a tip from someone obviously well connected to LG. He sent us a User Agent profile that showed that the LG G2 mini would be model numbers LG D618 and LG D620. The information he sent us also gave us some information about the 8MP camera on the back, including the different resolutions it will offer: 1280 x 960, 2560 x 1920, 3200 x 1920 and 3264 x 2448.

Now comes word that the LG G2 mini has received its Bluetooth certification. This certification covers the LG D620. In addition, a published report out of Japan reveals what is said to be specs related to the phone's display. If true, the mini version of LG's Android flagship phone will feature an underwhelming resolution of 540 x 960 (qHD). While there has been no word as to the screen size of the LG G2 mini, we'd expect a 4.3 inch screen with that resolution. At that size, the pixel density would equal 256ppi, the same as some other "mini" handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini.

Our source told us last month to expect the device to come to market with Android 4.4.2 on board, right out of the box. While LG has yet to make this model official, everything seems to be adding up toward the release of a mini version of the LG G2. Unfortunately, based on the 8MP rear camera expected on the back of the device, and the qHD resolution on the display, this mini version seems to be a watered down version of the LG G2 instead of just a smaller version of the flagship, like Sony did with the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact.

No LG, you're doing it wrong! Put an SD800 and an HD screen on that thing!

It would be LG G2 Lite or something. We have seen LG G Pro Lite around.

Say it isn't so! The LG G Pro Lite was an awful device, hope they don't do the same with this one.

Right... we thought that after the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact, the competition would learn, but alas! If the rumours become true both the HTC LG G2 mini and the HTC M8 mini will be again mid-rangers with a marketing inflicted name.

For a mid-ranger in 2014, a qHD screen wouldn't suffice. I'd say an S600 processor, 720p screen, 8MP with OIS, non-hyperglaze-like back would be good. I wouldn't mind the screen size as long as it's nearly bezel-less as the G2.
