LG G4 Mini spotted in Vodafone database

lg_g4_mini_vodafone_hungary_listing

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.

FCC tea leaves suggest LG G4 release on Sprint, Verizon getting close

LG_G4_From_NYC_02

A couple new entries in the FCC database for LG devices suggests the LG G4 has cleared regulatory approval on the way to market from Verizon and Sprint. The new entries are for devices with model numbers VS986 and LS991, although the entries do not mention “LG G4″ specifically as the phone model. However, sources note that the LG G3 on Verizon has the model number VS985 and on Sprint it gets model number LS990. So the new devices have had their model number increased by one relative to the LG G3, which suggests the new devices are the LG G4 for each of the carriers.

Neither carrier has released information about availability of the LG G4. However, sources think Sprint will hit the market in June and they do have a pre-registration page already setup. Meanwhile, no date has been set for Verizon
