The medium between the two would be paying for the Escape2 with the AT&T Next program. The monthly payments vary between $6 and $9 depending upon how many months the customer chooses to spread the cost over.

Riding on the buzz generated by their new LG G4 flagship smartphone, the manufacturer is rumored to be preparing a smaller version of the device for the mid-range market. A new listing in a Vodafone database for the Hungarian market appears to confirm this is the case. Although a previous listing on a Dutch site showed the device as the LG G4C, the Vodafone listing has it as the LG G4 Mini.
Sources indicate the LG G4 Mini will sport a 5-inch display, possibly only running at a 720p resolution, and will be powered by a Snapdragon 615 processor. The device is expected to be available this summer, possibly as soon as June in some markets.
The listing has since been taken down by Vodafone.
