Reported LG G2 Mini (LG-D620) Strolls Through Bluetooth SIG

LG G2

With other OEMs pumping out mini versions of their flagship devices, such as Samsung, Motorola, and HTC, it is about time that LG got into the mix. A device with model number LG-D620 ran through the Bluetooth SIG, and as rumored previously by other sources, is apparently the G2 Mini

Last year, we were shocked out how awesome the LG G2 was, with an amazing camera and gorgeous Full HD display, it was a fantastic device. The G2 Mini on the other hand, may not be as awesome as its big brother. It is reported that the G2 Mini will only feature a qHD display (540 x 960), but the device’s display size is still unknown. Although, one thing the G2 Mini does have going for it is that it’s rumored to launched with Android 4.4+. With most LG devices not running the latest version of Android, besides the Nexus 5 of course, this would be a welcomed surprise.

There is no official word from LG concerning such a device, but with Bluetooth certification now in the books, we could be getting close to an announcement.

Is the “mini” trend something you are getting tired of yet?

    It would be a nice alternative for those who want something smaller or cheaper than G2!

    My thoughts……

    Not sure about a G2 mini, but now that my G2 is running AOKP I couldn’t be happier…FREAKIN LOVE THIS THING. But it DOES require root/rom’s for some things to work that should have worked out of the box (Mainly, SPP so I can fully control pandora from my car audio system rather than the phone…LG left it out, ROM’s to the rescue!)

    I stopped reading at 540 x 960

    Lots of posts about how the mini will tarnish the higher end G2, but you could look at it the other way and say the G2 name may help with selling the mini by sharing a well established name.

    The mini offers an alternative, affordable option. But don’t kid yourself to think that avid phone lovers would hesitate about getting the higher end model, just because a “mini” cheap version is also available.

    The Sony xperia z1 compact has it right. That is how you do a mini. All makers should do 3 sizes and all with high end specs and only deviate where it is physically required and appropriate. Ex. Bigger battery on bigger phone. So G2 should have had a 4.3-4.5 mini and the 5.2 and the new lg g2 pro that will likely be 5.5. So a compact or mini, the standard, and the Phablet size all with same proc,ram,camera, and space options. Also 720 is fine on a mini. So display and battery can vary. These should all launch at the same time. Apple is about to do the 3 size thing all with high end specs.

    They really need to come up with better names than “LG2 Mini”.

  • Paradisimo

    It amuses me how big I thought the Droid X was when it launched and now phones the same size are called “mini”. My how times have changed…

  • droidify

    They could at least splurge for 720P. I remember how bad the bionic looked in 2011. This really sucks in 2014. I am loving my G2 though so maybe it will be a decent device

  • AbbyZFresh

    This is ridiculous LG. Too much of this “mini” trends will ruin the high-end brand. They need to market the and support the mini just as much as they market the original phone.

    At least Motorola got this formula right with the Moto G.

  • Ryan

    This will probably be on Metro PCS.

    • Tim242

      Metro PCS no longer exists.

      • wade_county

        umm it actually does. http://www.metropcs.com

        • Tim242

          Umm I guess you have been under a rock. T-Mobile bought them. That site is for existing customers to manage accounts until everything is merged.

          • wade_county

            Umm I live in a Metro PCS market. Its being treated as a MVNO like what Sprint does for Boost.

  • Cael

    They should have called this the LG G[2] Lite, because it’s clearly going to be light on the specs.

  • The Narrator

    The same resolution as that retina iPhone 4. Hrm.

    Minis are good for people who can’t possibly afford $600 phones. But at the same time, ruins the higher end version by looking bad. Moto did good with the G, so i hope that influences future devices.

  • Ryan Gullett

    I like the idea of the “mini trend”. I just wish the phones were more on par with the non-mini version. It would give the option to people who hate big phones, who still want to enjoy a high end device.

    • Ben Murphy

      ….or didn’t come out 6 months after it’s bretheren.

    • MichaelFranz

      Only one i think that “did it right” was Moto and the Droid Mini. Same exact specs, and launched at the same timeframe and not months later.

      • T4rd

        And the Xperia Z1 Compact.. it’s just too bad it’s not in the US (right now at least). Pretty sure it’s the smallest phone available (at 4.3″) with a Snapdragon 800 and 2GBs of RAM. Pretty sweet!

        • flosserelli

          Yeah, Sony gets it. For everyone else, the “Mini” moniker is just an excuse for using last year’s tech but charging this year’s price.

        Yes on all accounts! Mini phones get crap processors (by comparison), crap screens (by comparison), and crap release date (by comparison).. Droid Mini is the exception as far as I can remember.

        • wade_county

          Also, the Droid RAZR M had the same specs as its larger brethren.

  • Philip J. Fry

    They can put 4.4 on this but not on the G2? Ridiculous.

    • wtfsss

      I’m assuming that by the time this launches the G2 will have 4.4

      • Philip J. Fry

        Doubt it. Look what the gflex launched with.

      • Thomas O’Brien

        It better…

    • Ben Murphy

      Raise the root.

      • Eric Harper

        I rooted, installed cyanagenmod 11 and went back to stock. I really like the G2 ROM. I just want 4.4 we all were promised.

        • mcdonsco

          Try AOKP…I tried CM12, Gummy and AOKP was the closest to stock with GEL etc.

          • Thomas O’Brien

            How about the bugs on AOKP for the VS980?

    • Thomas O’Brien

      Unbelievable…
