Being a ludicrously well-oiled machine (if I do say so myself), I’m seriously starting to think I could write some sort of computer programme that churns out my news for me, while I kick back with a cup of coffee and play me some Xbox.
Here I’ll simply tick the box “mini version of flagship smartphone” and “spotted sneaking into India (Zauba)”.
You all know the drill by now: flagship smartphone gets released, rumours of “mini” version follow, “mini” name is slightly misleading because it’s a seriously watered-down version of said flagship and barely worthy of the name (the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact being the only exception to date).
According to the Zauba listing, the units arrived on a flight from South Korea on May 31 (presumably for “R&D purposes”; that’s the usual story), and LG G3 mini specs will include a 4.5in display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 5MP rear camera, 8GB internal storage, and 2,100mAh battery.
That 5MP rear camera seems especially disappointing, even for a “mini” smartphone, though earlier whispers pointed to an 8MP snapper. Does anyone care? Probably not. Next!
