LG announced that its G2 mini smartphone will start selling in April, starting with CIS countries followed by markets in Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. As that’s usually the case, details of availability and pricing information will be announced locally in the weeks ahead.
Announced during this year’s Mobile World Congress, the LG G2 mini builds on the success of the original G2 smartphone. It has a 4.7-inch qHD IPS screen, 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chip, 1GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front cameras, 8GB of expandable storage, while Android 4.4 KitKat is running the show.
It will be available in 3G and 4G LTE variants with single- and dual-SIM configurations. Users will be able to choose between few color options, including Titan Black, Lunar White, Red and Gold though not all colors will be available in all markets.
Finally, LG wants us to remind you about their very own Knock Code software, which enables phone unlocking by tapping a personalized “knock” pattern on the phone’s display. The “tap pattern” can be made up of a sequence of two to eight taps, allowing for more than 80,000 possible combinations.
