LG announces April release for LG G2 mini
LG announced on Thursday how it plans on releasing the LG G2 mini. Starting next month, the device will be launched in certain Russian territories. Shortly thereafter, the Korean manufacturer will roll out the device through Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. Pricing and further details of the phone's availability will be made known in the appropriate local markets in the weeks ahead.

The LG G2 mini is equipped with a 4.7 inch IPS display with resolution of 540 x 960, and a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU is under the hood. 1GB of RAM is on board with 8GB of native storage. A microSD slot is included for those who need additional storage. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 8MP and 1.3MP respectively and the phone is powered by a 2440mAh battery. Android 4.4 is installed out of the box, and depending on the region, the phone will be available in Titan Black, Lunar White, Red and Gold. LG is also planning on producing single/dual SIM versions of the LG G2 mini.We should point out that the LTE version of this phone offered in Latin America will be powered by a quad-core 1.7GHz Tegra 4i processor, and feature a 13MP rear-facing snapper.

Knock Code is going to be one of the features on the handset. This allows the user to create a code made up of a pattern of taps on the screen, to unlock or power on the phone. The pattern can be as short as two taps and as long as eight taps. That means that there are 80,000 possible combinations to chose from, and the taps can be made on any area of the screen to make it easier to use the phone with one hand.

I 'm waiting to see the Korean LG G3 too (remov. battery, mSD) and hope for a better camera this time, same dimentions, no bigger screen, better build. Some company has to make a speedy 3D camera smartphone, like 2x13mpx. It's missing from the market (I don't consider M8, 4mpx+2,1mpx)

Apple seems to be the only company that understands what "mini" means apparently. Apple understands it as a smaller version of a flagship devices, so its specs are complete, just a smaller screen and size. See: Ipad Air vs Ipad Mini. Everybody else sees it as : Let's scam the uninformed consumer into thinking it is just a smaller version of our Flagship device, when it is actually just a midrange or sometimes even a lowrange device, that looks similar. How backwards is that? Usually I would expect the other way around, Apple being the one scamming people, while companies like Samsung and LG actually giving us specs equal devices. How wrong I am.

Ruined the phone with 540 x 960 resolution.

Yeah, that's what I was going to say. It should have had a 720p display and then it might have been a decent mini version of an awesome flagship. This happens with almost every mini version of a great flagship, except for the Z1 Compact, which is pretty awesome and I praise Sony for it.

The Moto G is a perfect phone for the price.

who could have guessed a few years ago that a 4.7 inch screen would be called mini in android world whereas apple would still be stuck with 4 inch screen

Haha true Android OEMs should make Nano (4.3") or Pico (3.7") models as well

its screen resolution may a big let down, but its good some one whos doesn't care about how sharp the screen,but care about performance snapdragon 400 and its gpu is made to power 720p device smoothly while tegra 4i can power full hd smoothly lesser resolution mean higher perform g2 mini is about 3/4 of 720p resolution, means it will has 25~30% better perform compare to other snapdragon 400 powered device and maybe 125~130(1080 is about 2times more pixel than 720) better perform on tegra 4i chipset. just my personal opinion if i am wrong,,feel free to correct me
