LG G3 Mini tipped to launch after big brother

LG G2 and G2 Mini

With great power comes great responsibility, and it seems with every flagship smartphone from a major manufacturer comes a mini version. LG will reportedly hive the still-rumored LG G3 the Mini treatment, with new rumors suggesting a smaller, weaker version of the flagship device will be in tow.

Early details tell of a device with a 720p display and an 8 megapixel camera — not quite the beastly specs we expect the full-sized brother to have, but sounds decent enough to turn some heads. We can’t be too sure of other internals just yet, but we imagine whatever is inside will be more than capable of handling Android 4.4.2.

That’s the extent of our knowledge thus far, though a model with bands for AT&T has been confirmed. There’s no telling if this will head to all four major carriers as the full-sized LG G3 is expected to, but we wouldn’t bet our life savings on it.

    They might as well call it by a different name if it’s going to be a completely different phone…

    “Lite” is a better word to use for this inferior phone!!

      It’s also one of the few situations where atrocious American spelling such as “lite” is excusable.

    why isnt there a manufacture that makes a compact or mini/lite phone that has the same specs as its big brother besides Sony? looks to me Sony is going to be the to go manufacture for these phones
