If we go back in time a few years, you might be remember when every flagship phone had a mini counterpart. Most of these mini devices sucked, of course, and offered significantly downgraded specs in a smaller screen size with worse resolution. Almost none of them were worthwhile investments, and the trend slowly died on its own. Until LG decided to make the G6 Mini, that is.
Take this with a grain of salt, since it’s still just a rumor, but LG might be prepping a G6 Mini for certain markets later this year. There aren’t any details about the device other than the fact that it will reportedly use a slightly smaller 5.4-inch screen instead of the LG G6’s 5.7-inch screen, which is such a small difference that this thing really shouldn’t be considered mini.
There’s also no word on what kind of hardware to expect, so it could be a G6 with a smaller form factor, or it could be a G6 with a Snapdragon 620, 2GB of RAM, and a 1080p display. Nothing wrong with budget phones, obviously, but that would follow the awful trend of previous mini devices.
We’ll keep you updated if this looks like it’ll end up being anything besides a quirky rumor.
