These are the main specs and features of the LG G2 Mini, which will be available in multiple variants, including dual SIM and LTE models:

- Operating system: Android 4.4 KitKat with Plug & Pop, Guest Mode, Clip Tray
- Battery: 2,440 mAh
- Weight/Dimensions: 0.27 pounds; 5.1X2.6X0.38 inches
Depending on region, the handset will be available in Red, Gold, Titan Black or Lunar White. The G2 Mini will be shown at LG’s Booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via during MWC 2014 and will launch globally in March, when the 3G dual SIM model will hit the CIS market. The Middle East, Latin America, Asia and Europe will follow shortly after, but there is no word on US availability yet. Information on pricing will probably become available at MWC.
