LG G2 mini to touch down in the UK in April

LG G2 mini to touch down in the UK in AprilRemember the LG G2 mini that popped up just before MWC? LG has finally followed up on its initial semi-launch announcement a month ago and dished up some further details.

More on those shortly, but probably the most important news is that the G2 mini should be with us before the end of April.

As we pointed out last month, though, that's still an age after the G2 itself made its debut, but we'll try not to complain too much. And anyway, apart from a naming convention there isn't too much in common between the two, so comparisons are pretty irrelevant.

The LG G2 mini's display comes in at 4.7in across, but offers just a 960 x 540 resolution, which is nothing special. Other specs will differ depending on which market you're talking about, but the UK version of the G2 mini will come with a 1GHz Snapdragon 400 chipset – either the Qualcomm MSM8226 (for 3G-only variants) or the MSM8926 on the LTE model.

RAM is limited to just 1GB, and you'll have to make do with 8GB of storage, while an unremarkable 8MP camera sits round the back, and the removable battery gives you 2440mAh of juice to play with.

All told it's nothing special at all, and we're curious to see how aggressive LG's pricing tactics are. In reality, we need to be talking sub-£200 levels for it even to get a look in.

The LG G2 mini will land first in Russia and nearby markets, but will be heading westwards before long.

Sub-£200, that's cute...pretty sure this is worse than a sub-£100 8GB Moto G, all things considered.
