LG G2 Mini confirmed for MWC 2014 unveiling

Forget about the bendable LG G Flex, the Korean manufacturer has confirmed that the repeatedly rumoured LG G2 Mini will be officially unveiled at MWC 2014.

Having been the subject of multiple leaks and rumours in recent weeks, LG has confirmed that the LG G2 Mini, a smaller version of the flagship LG G2, will enter the realms of reality in less than two weeks’ time.

Following on the heels of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and HTC One Mini, compact, reduced spec siblings to the flagship Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One respectively, the LG G2 Mini has been confirmed by the company’s official Facebook page.

As well as offering up the first official image of the LG G2 Mini, shown alongside its big sibling, LG has stated: “Experience the MINI. Mobile World Congress. 2014-02-24.”

The dating of the company’s product teases has revealed that the handset will be formally showcased for the first time on the opening day on the show, Monday February 24.

Although LG has failed to offer any formal LG G2 Mini specs, recent rumours have suggested the phone will boast a 4.3-inch display, with the G2’s 1080p Full HD display dropping to a less than impressive 960 x 540p offering.

While the official image has confirmed the Mini will retain the G2’s rear-mounted volume controls, rumours have hinted that the handset will be powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and Google’s latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS.

With the LG G2 Mini confirmed for a February 24 unveiling, the handset is set to be unveiled on the same day as the eagerly awaited Samsung Galaxy S5, one of the most eagerly awaited handsets of the year.
