Rumors of an LG G6 Mini began yesterday with TechnoBuffalo publishing an article stating that a leaked internal document speaks of an LG G6 Mini. LG recently released its G6 flagship smartphone, and the Korean manufacturer has previously released mini versions of major devices. In this case, however, it is unclear if the G6 Mini will make it to market.
The article refers to the device as having a 5.4-inch display with the same 18:9 aspect ratio as its larger sibling. Internal specifications of the device weren’t revealed in the document, but many of LG’s past mini devices have featured lower-end hardware as a means to target emerging markets and budget-conscious shoppers.
Fans of the rumored device may be let down. Pricing and release details weren’t disclosed and a date from early 2016 was mentioned in the document, making it a plausible alternative that the G6 Mini was simply a proposed device that was later cancelled. The lack of other rumors regarding the device lends some credence to this option.
If other details regarding the LG G6 Mini emerge, we’ll be sure to keep readers in the loop. Stay tuned.
