LG has already made the G4 official, but so far the company has not outed a 'mini' version of its new flagship. Last year we had the G3 S serving this purpose, so it stands to reason that a 'mini' G4 is being prepped.
In fact, not long ago we found out about a G4c that will supposedly be out in Europe in June, with lower-end specs and a smaller screen compared to the G4.
Now though from Hungary comes a mention of a phone actually called LG G4 Mini. This has been spotted in a price list for Vodafone's local arm over there, as you can see from the photo below.
The listing has since vanished, but it's pretty clear that Vodafone is getting ready to release the G4 Mini. And since this particular carrier is present in many European countries, we assume the G4 Mini will get a wider launch.
According to some unnamed sources, the handset is due to be in stores in "early summer", and it will sport a 5-inch 720p touchscreen and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 615 chipset. This directly conflicts with the previously leaked info out of Germany, which was claiming that the G4c would come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC instead.
So either the G4 Mini and G4c will be different devices, or one of these sources is wrong. This time around we don't get any more details, but the aforementioned German rumor also talked about the smaller G4 coming with an 8 MP rear camera, a 5 MP selfie unit, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal storage. It should run Android 5.0 Lollipop from day one, and will apparently be released in Germany in the first week of June.
SD615, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 13 MPix camera. They're decent midrange specs, better than the one you can find in the Galaxy A5.
It's not the cell phone manufacturers fault that you have tiny hands.
Yeah so what is less than 5 inches? They'll have to come up with a new term, Micro perhaps?
