We’re halfway through January and there’s no trace of the LG G2 mini around, in spite of the timeline tipped by reliable sources last month, however pieces of an LG phone’s User Agent Profile have been uncovered today, bringing the rumors back on the table.
First things first, a little disclaimer. The images allegedly showing this UA Prof could very well be fabricated, surfacing from an anonymous tipster. Also, even if real, they don’t necessarily have to designate the yet to be confirmed G2 mini.
The model numbers listed, D618 and D620, are definitely not aliases of existing LG handhelds, but otherwise, they’re hard to crack. The closest connection I was able to find is with the Optimus L9 II (aka D605) and Optimus F6 (D505), so don’t act surprised if they’ll end up as part of the mid-range family.
Assuming the entire story pans out and we’re indeed looking at a pair of G2 mini versions, the only concrete tidbit revealed today is the featuring of an 8 MP camera with four possible snapping resolutions: 1,280 x 960, 2,560 x 1,920, 3,200 x 1,920 and 3,264 x 2,448.
Yawn, right? Well, there’s also this theory going around the D410 is actually the LG G2 mini, and we just happen to know more about that mystery fellow. The GFXBench database shows it runs Android 4.4 KitKat (whoa!), and packs a fairly zippy 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU (probably quad-core), paired with an Adreno 305 GPU.
Too bad the display, which presumably won’t measure 4.7 inches after all, clocks in at a meager 960 x 540 pixels resolution. Worry not, Sony, your Xperia Z1 Compact is still safe at the top of the “mini” food chain.
