LG has just recently launched the new G6 smartphone here in India, a couple of months after it’s official announcement at MWC 2017. This new flagship from LG improves upon what the G5 offered in a lot of different ways. The G6 is so much more refined and feels a lot like a premium device, which is what it is supposed to be like since it is a flagship device. However, for most people, it might not be an ideal package due to a lot of reasons. To begin with, it is a lot taller than most other smartphones due to its aspect ratio just like the Galaxy S8.
Well, yes there are a lot of reason as to why you might want a smaller version of the G6 and if you are one of those, then we might have a good news for you. According to the recent rumors which we have, it looks like the company is planning on launching the G6 Mini very soon. As the name suggests, this is going to be more like a toned down version of the smartphone with a compact design and we might also see some internal specs changes as well.
Now talking about the hardware, the G6 Mini is expected to sport a 5.4″ display on the front. Rumor has it that it will also retain the same aspect ratio of 18:9 which is again going to make it taller than usual devices. It is also reported that it will have a screen-to-body ratio of just under 80-percent. The fact that the smaller version of the G6 is making its debut, is definitely a good news for people who are always on the lookout for devices with smaller form factor.
Unfortunately, if you are looking for the internal specs of the device, then we don’t really have a lot of info on that just yet. It will be interesting to see if the Mini version will carry over the specs of the G6 or it will have more of a mid-ranged specs. And it also looks like the company will be focusing more on promoting these devices in emerging markets rather than pushing it in the U.S where they will be focusing more on selling the G6.
We do hope that the internal specs remain more or less the same since it would give the company an edge over the competition by having more than just one variant. However, as mentioned earlier, it is going to be interesting to see how this plays out for the company if we will actually be seeing the new Mini version of the smartphone. Having said that we would like to know what do you think about this. Would you be interested in buying the smaller variant of the device of would you rather pick up the regular variant itself.
