LG G6 Mini with 5.4-inch display could be launched soon, here are some pictures

LG's flagship smartphone, the G6 has been recently launched in the United States, but the South Korean company plans to launch a smaller version of it.

While the information hasn't been officially confirmed yet, pictures of the unannounced LG G6 mini have just emerged online. Unlike the standard model that comes with a larger 5.7-inch display, the mini variant sports a 5.4-inch panel and a screen-to-body ratio of under 80%.

However, both LG G6 models feature the same 18:9 aspect ratio, so if you weren't particularly a fan of it, you'd probably be disappointed. Unfortunately, aside from the size of the display, the rest of the phone's specs are still a mystery.

LG might change something inside the mini version of G6 to reduce the cost of the phone, or it can retain all the features of its current flagship, as well as the high price.

It's also worth mentioning that LG G6 mini is not the final market name of the smartphone. Even though we're certain the devices exists, LG might choose to launch the G6 mini in select markets, and the United States may not be one of them.

Android OEMs: Hey, here's our mini variation! Me: Learn what the term 'mini' means.

It does literally mean reduced size of original.

I think it's going to be more than just the display size of "mini", expect to see changes in the rest if the specs, LG hasn't taken the Sony compact route, but let's wait and see what they do this time.

I wish there would be more compact phones, I want small sized big speched phones, in terms of size, the iphone se is perfect, imagine that with small bezels, 5" or 4.7"", "let me get 30"

Same here. 5" 75%

It's hard to achieve the same screen to body ratio if you shrink the screen down. Without keeping high screen area (read: 5.5" or more on 16:9), the bezels have to be nearly non-existent to get ratios in the upper 70th percentiles. This should achieve close to 73-75% which is good.

That's just like the Xperia ZL from 2013.

I need a HTC One mini 2 with high end specs, usb type c, and without the black bar, That's the perfect size for me.

It's larger than there flagship in 2016... The term mini is very loose here.

screen size /= phone size

ohhhh, I'm so down for a device like this. Compact body with large screen. This would be near the perfect size phone. Hope they make it a little thicker for a bigger battery and SD835 and I'm sold! :)

5.4" INCHES is not exactly small it should be atleast a whole inch smaller than the G6. I get the comment that it may have lesser specs that again wouldnt be the name i would call it. maybe G6S or G6 Lite or depending how derived it is maybe a completely different name.

I agree, it seems like it should have been 5.1" or 5.2" at the most. I would like to get my mom a new phone, but all these devices are too big for her small hands. I wish that OEMs would take that into consideration for some users.

That would be strangely narrow in the 18:9 format, you do know that?

This phone is likely at similar size of iphone 7, if it's not mini then maybe you're looking for 'dwarf' phone.

A Mini G6 and S8 with recent spec and Snapdragon 625 would be awesome for those searching for battery life and don't care about highest specs.

You searching for awesome battery life? Then why wait of a Galaxy S8 mini? Grab any of the 2017 Galaxy A series and that's it!


Posts: 1168; Member since: Oct 05, 2015

You nailed it, bro. I swear, phones with QC's mid to upper middle range chips and decent batteries (3000-4000 mAh) and 1080p screens from the better OEMs have amazing battery life. They smash even the so-called highly efficient process node bearing, optimized flagships. That's what I'm looking for next, one of those phones. From LG, Samsung, or Nokia.

My GS8 Ian somehow still on its first charge and I got it on the 24th. My usage is pretty light but that's still some nice standby.

1080p screen, sd835 and a 3000mah battery and I'm game!

5.4 inches is mimi in correlation to the G6's screen size.

Given LG's history, I expect it to have the SD625. Which would mean great battery, but reduced performance. At least its better than when the G2 mini had the SD400...

Then lg will put 2gb ram, crappy processor and sell it exclusively in korea.

If my calculations are correct, the LG G6 mini, if in 16:9 aspect ratio, would be equivalent to a 4.7" screeen size.

4.7"-5" would be perfect for most users. Dont know why cant they release 3 different variants (4.7", 5.1" and 5.7")
