User Agent profiles reveal information on the LG G2 mini

User Agent profiles reveal information on the LG G2 mini
Thanks to one of our loyal readers, we now know quite a bit about the rear facing camera on the LG G2 mini. A User Agent profile he sent us reveals that the camera will be 8MP and will offer four different resolutions: 1280 x 960, 2560 x 1920, 3200 x 1920 and 3264 x 2448. We are also told that the device will be running Android 4.4 right out of the box. A second UAProf reveals two model numbers for the device. The LG D618 and the LG D620 will be two different variants of the bite-sized version of the Korean OEM's Android flagship phone.

With most flagship models offering a mini version, it will be interesting to see which way LG goes. The manufacturer could follow country mate Samsung and drop down the specs sharply, or it could take Sony's novel approach. With the latter's Sony Xperia Z1 Compact, the Japanese OEM merely reduced the size of the screen on the full sized Sony Xperia Z1 from 5 inches to 4.3 inches, dropped the resolution from 1080 x 1920 to 720 x 1280, and put a lower 2300mAh cell inside the phone. The full-sized model is powered by a 3000mAh battery.

Sony's gambit paid off big time. The version of the Xperia Z1 Compact for Japan's Docomo, the Sony Xperia Z1f, has risen to the top of the country's smartphone sales charts. Further testing revealed that the smaller, lower resolution glass on the Compact is actually providing better viewing angles and color representation than the 5 inch screen on the full-sized model, and the battery on the Compact is also lasting longer.

No doubt that LG fans are hoping that the LG G2 mini is patterned more like the Sony model.

I've only used the G2 once, I'll admit, its faster than the Samsung Galaxy S4, Its a newer model after all. The problem with LG is, In November i walked into the Vodafone Store and they only had 10 LG G2 in stock, MTN only had 15, Cell C had 5 and telkom mobile had nothing. Mind you that the G2 only launched here in November and these low numbers where actualy the stock they had on launch day. MTN had 150 Samsung Galaxy S4 units in stock. My point is, How can you buy something thats not available when you need it..... (PS: Im a Die Hard Samsung Fan BTW)

My point is, That little stock ran out on launch day and why wait 7-10 working days for an LG G2 when samsung's S4 is always available.

I hope you know stores only carry maybe 5-15 phones at max in stock. Phones like Galaxy S4 and the iPhone they carry more for obvious reasons.

It doesn't matter. Name a place where phones are sold that carry more than 10 models of a phone stocked. They'll do it for the S4 and iPhone like I said, but for other models the normally don't sell they keep less stock of for more room of models that actually do sell better. It's common sense..

This is not a UA Profile. The string was found in a LG Camera APPS by a guy at XDA
