The Korean company LG expands its renowned G Series family with the launch of LG G2 Mini, a device that appears as a worthy successor of the original LG G2, but boasts a sheet more discreet. Unlike its big brother, the LG G2 mini features a 4.7-inch screen with a rather basic resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. Would emphasize the incorporation of two types of processors, one for each version, depending on whether the computer keeps compatibility with 3G or 4G networks. To all this, we have to indicate that the terminal integrates up to 1 GB of RAM and runs through the most current version of the operating system Google : Android 4.4.2 (KitKat).
But these are not the only technical characteristics that should be mentioned. Both versions are also distinguished by having a couple of different cameras. On the one hand, an 8 megapixel camera and on the other, are 13. Both include, we must say, functions that allow getting instant and high quality videos. The device, which will be available from the coming weeks on the international market, becoming available to the public in four different colors: black, white, red and gold. It analyzes thoroughly the technical specifications of the new LG G2 mini.
The design proposed by LG for the LG G2 mini is not far from the previous models and specifically its big brother, the LG G2. It share a rounded, fine, very nice design touch, but differ in that the LG G2 mini phone wants to be a compact: easy to hold with one hand and comfortable to carry in any pocket. However, one of its most important features (which we saw in the LG G2) has to do with the concept Rear Key, an access key to the menu you find in the back of the phone. What we want to get LG with this feature is that the user can, through its index finger, unlock, and control sound on or off all kinds of configurable features. In fact, with a long press on this button will activate the function QuickMemo or even the application of the camera.
But if there is an important element in any smartphone is the screen. This time, LG wanted to reduce some tenths for a compact effect on the terminal. Thus, it has gone from 5.2 to 4.7 inches (diagonal), a feature that is associated with a screen resolution rather discreet (960 x 540 pixels). This generates a resulting pixel density of 234ppi and a depth of up to 16 million colors.
Most users look for in their smartphones good quality cameras to replace the old compact and have one in your pocket all-in-one much more practical. This time, LG does not disappoint. The LG G2 mini will be presented in two different versions, one for networks LTE/4G and one for 3G networks. In the former case, the camera will have a 13 megapixel sensor, while the second, and have one of 8. The only difference is the number of pixels, because the other facilities and extra features are virtually identical. Both include LED flash, autofocus, geotagging, face detection and image stabilization. It can also record HD video (1080p @ 60fps).
Unlike smartphones from other brands, this LG G2 mini not is distinguished by having different capacities. One version is presented with an internal memory of 8 GB which can be expanded up to 64 GB with microSD cards. Thus, the user can store large amounts of information. This includes pictures, videos, music, but also applications. In fact, to not overload the internal memory is recommended to use, always, a microSD card.
Yes there will be different versions that differ by the processor. For example, there is a first version with a chip quad-core Qualcomm MSM8926 1.2GHz version leading 3G. In contrast, editing LTE integrates an Nvidia Tegra quad-core 4i to 1.7 GHz. Both teams, though, combined with performance RAM 1GB, something fair when compared with memory we’ve seen in release most recent. In any case, it seems that this combination may offer users a remarkable performance, both when running complex applications such as when playing video games or multimedia content with a high potential for graphics.
Here is one of the most important features of the team. Know that the LG G2 mini series works through the latest operating system Google: Android 4.4.2 (KitKat). This is the most complete and sophisticated editing, includes a wide collection of enhanced features, but also with significant changes to the interface design. As if this were not enough, these phone users can enjoy the main series of Google services. And like any good Android, the LG G2 mini incorporates natively installed applications corresponding to Google Search, Google Maps, Navigation, Gmail, YouTube, Picasa, Google Plus, etc.
In addition, LG has integrated in this different team own functions, such as Answer Me, a system to answer calls automatically, and you reduce the tone of the call as we approached the team to our ear, Text Link, to copy and save information more quickly; Quick Remote, a system for managing different multimedia devices to our home via remote control, Plug & Pop, a tool that recommends us where each connection insert; Slide Aside, a system for managing different applications or multitasking Guest Mode, the system will allow you to setup different users for sharing and always keep your privacy safe.
How could it be otherwise, the LG G2 mini phone is fully prepared for connectivity? So much so that one of the versions saved network support LTE (Cat3, 50 Mbps UL, 100 Mbps DL). The second version is no problem connecting networks 3G (HSPA 21 Mbps). It share this feature and incorporate other essential functions for a full one hundred percent efficiency. We refer to the following: WiFi 802 a / b / g / n, WiFi Direct, WiFi Hotspot, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, NFC and GPS with A-GPS, which in turn will it help you enjoy your LG G2 mini like a dedicated GPS navigator for car. It is as true for your driving routes to navigate and find interesting places to walk. In the area of physical connections, it has to have a microUSB 2.0 port and a 3.5 mm output for headphones.
