LG G2 mini release date confirmed for April

The LG G2 mini release date has been confirmed by LG, with the smartphone touching down in April.

Arriving in April, rollout will begin in Russian Commonwealth countries initially, followed by Asia, Europe, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.

“The compact G2 mini offers a combination of design, hardware and UX features previously unavailable in its class, making it a very attractive option for mid-tier markets,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG. “With the G2 mini, our objective is to allow a much larger consumer base to be able to experience the key benefits of the G2 UX in a smaller form factor. To that end, we’re confident we’ve succeeded with the G2 mini.”

Originally LG told TrustedReviews that the LG G2 mini wouldn’t arrive until “around May or June time”, priced “accordingly to the mid-range market”.

LG G2 Mini Features
Originally announced at MWC 2014 in February, the LG G2 mini builds upon the flagship LG G2 smartphone released at the tail end of last year.

It features a 4.7-inch qHD 960 x 540p display running Android 4.4 KitKat on a 1.2Ghz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM.

Powered by a 2440mAh battery, the G2 mini comes with 8GB of internal storage, helped by microSD card support.

Around back is an 8-megapixel camera, complemented by a 1.3-megapixel forward-facing camera.

The LG G2 mini comes with 3G and 4G compatibility and offers Bluetooth 4.0 LE, Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity options.

Software features include the LG G2’s Knock Code unlocking function, Quick Window and Guest Mode among others.
