LG G2 mini LS885 reportedly headed to Sprint

LG’s original G2 was launched in the second half of 2013 to become one of the company’s best-selling high-end handsets, helping it grab 8% of the US smartphone market share. So it’s no wonder that LG also announced a G2 mini last month.

While the G2 mini hasn’t been released yet, it will be introduced around the world starting April. And it looks like the US is one of the markets that will get it, sooner or later. 

@evleaks has it that the G2 mini will be launched in the US by Sprint at some point. Allegedly, Sprint’s G2 mini has the model number LS885. This LS885 is already listed at Sprint’s website, where we can see that it features a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor - not an Nvidia Tegra 4i SoC (which is used in some G2 mini variants). Interestingly, the LS885 appears to sport a 720 x 1280 pixels display instead of the 540 x 960 pixels screen of the G2 mini for international markets. Of course, we still have to wait for Sprint to officially confirm these features.

Sprint is currently selling the original LG G2 (which is getting Android 4.4 KitKat starting today) for $49.99 on contract. We’re thinking that the G2 mini, which runs KitKat out of the box, should cost less. Until we hear more on this, you can check out the international LG G2 mini in the slideshow below.
