After LG launched the G3 flagship last year the company built a whole portfolio of smartphones based off the handset. With the G4 replacement now launched it seems the Korean company has similar plans for its brand new flag waver. A new listing on Vodafone Hungary showed that a LG G4 Mini is in the works, nestled in amongst the carriers other mid-range devices.LG is no averse to launching a mini version of a flagship, with the G2 Mini and G Pro Mini previously launched in this vein. Of course, the mini trend sees manufacturers take their flagship brands and water then down in terms of size and specs, while retaining the premium design. It is not a practice we necessarily agree with, but it seems companies are continuing to push these devices on us. At the very least the G4 Mini will offer a smaller variant of the device and one that is more affordable, but we do not expect much interesting in the way of specs. Vodafone?s listed hardware confirms that, such as a 5-inch 720p screen, a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, 2GB of RAM, and a 13 megapixel rear camera. The handset is expected to launch next month.
