LG's G2 Mini Has Shrunk in Size, While the G Pro 2 Has Grown

By Kat Hannaford on at

The diminutive (in size and raw power) LG G2 Mini was shown off at MWC today after its early reveal last week, alongside the more thrilling G Pro 2 (pictured above), a phablet with an even bigger screen, growing from the 5.5-inches of its original to 5.9-inches with a 1920 x 1080 screen.

Running KitKat on a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage (expandable to 32GB via MicroSD), the aforementioned 5.9-inch IPS screen is coated in Gorilla Glass 3.

Considering it's around the same size as Samsung's Galaxy Note III, LG did well to keep the weight down to 172grams (the Note III weighs 168g), but it matches Samsung's phablet efforts squarely on the battery front with a 3200mAh battery.

The camera meanwhile is 13MP, capable of recording 4K video.

While the G Pro 2 has grown in size, the LG G2 Mini has shrunk, now featuring a 4.7-inch screen (down from the 5.2-inches of the original G2). Screen resolution has also dropped to 540 x 960, as has memory, processor, camera and battery -- expect to see the 4G phone outfitted with a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 chipset, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage (expandable with a MicroSD card slot), an 8MP camera, and 2440mAh battery, when it launches across Europe.
