LG G3 mini spotted sneaking into India

LG G3 mini spotted sneaking into IndiaBeing 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).

As relayed by G 4 Games, the LG G3 mini, a smaller and ultimately lamer version of the LG G3, has popped up on Zauba, which records details of goods moving in and out of India.

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!

What a coincidence that there is leaked info about the LG mini version. The LG3 was the worlds worst kept secret, the amount of leaked info had no one second guessing what the product was going to turn out like. Is this a cunning ploy by LG to strike while the iron is still hot and try and drum up some press and anticipation for their future device?! Saying that the G3 is a pretty reliable little number for the asking price, there are some nifty 3D model comparisions here which underline how well it is standing up against other flagships in its field, http://versus.com/en/lg-g3-vs-samsung-galaxy-s5. Hopefully the mini will be just as tidy and create some waves in the smartphone world!!
