LG to Introduce Its First “Compact” Smartphone

Korea’s LG Electronics will unveil its first ever “compact” smartphone, G2 mini, at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 in Barcelona, Spain, the company said.

Developed as a smaller version of LG G2, the G2 mini will introduce most of the G2’s premium UX features to a new global audience, LG said.

UX features found in LG’s premium G Series flagship models, such as Guest Mode, Plug & Pop, Clip Tray and Capture Plus, have been carried over to the G2 mini to satisfy a generation of new users, the company said in a statement.

The G2 mini will be available in many variations: Single/Dual SIM, 3G/4G LTE and four colour options.

The smartphone market has settled into categories of premium devices with display sizes above 5-inches and mid-tier devices in the 4.5-inch range. As a 4.7-inch device the G2 mini is “anticipated to further satisfy consumer demand for a practical smartphone with premium features,” LG said.

“The G2 mini is all about bringing the best user experience of the G2 to a more compact, mid-tier device, giving millions of customers the opportunity to benefit from the LG premium experience,” said Dr Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

“This device offers the perfect balance of modern design and practical UX in a compact package without compromising performance.”
