LG G3 Mini spotted on import site
LG has only just unveiled the LG G3 (above) but already we’ve caught wind of the LG G3 Mini. The phone popped up on Indian import / export site Zauba.com and the listing was accompanied by some specs.
According to the site, the LG G3 Mini will have a 4.5 inch display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 5 megapixel camera, 8GB of built in storage and a 2100 mAh battery, all of which seems a little questionable if we’re honest.
Unsurprisingly the specs are a lot lower than those of the LG G3, but they even seem lower than the specs of the LG G2 Mini, which has a 4.7 inch screen, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, an 8 megapixel camera, 8GB of built in storage and a 2440 mAh battery.
Now, it could well be that the LG G3 Mini has a higher resolution screen, a newer processor and more RAM, but even so it would still be a smaller device with a lower megapixel camera and a smaller battery.
Zauba isn’t in the habit of making things up, but it’s possible that it got the specs wrong somehow, or perhaps this isn’t the final version of the handset. It’s also possible that this is intentionally designed as a lower end device than the LG G2 Mini. The Zauba listing puts it at a value of 13,051 INR, which amounts to roughly £131. That would put it in Moto G territory rather than making it a competitor for the HTC One Mini 2, so perhaps that’s the whole point.
One thing we can say with a fair amount of confidence though is that as the handset appeared on Zauba it’s probably a real thing.
When it will launch is less clear. The LG G2 Mini only launched a few months ago, so it may be a while until we see the LG G3 Mini, but sooner or later it should arrive.
