LG’s G2 Mini is one odd little phone. It physically resembles the larger handset, complete with those iconic rear-mounted volume controls, and scales things down ever so slightly, while still packing a relatively large 4.7-inch screen. Unfortunately, the hardware situation doesn’t live up to its namesake, with Snapdragon 400s and Tegra 4is instead of the Snapdragon 800. We’ve heard some general talk about release plans for Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa, but little about LG’s intentions for North America; would a carrier in the States end up adding the G2 Mini to its lineup? While still not confirmed, that’s sounding like a strong possibility, with Sprint named as a possible home.
This news comes to us as the latest arrival from @evleaks, who specifies that Sprint’s G2 Mini should arrive as LG’s model LS885.
That leaves us with the question of when the phone might go up for sale. When we heard about all those international plans the other day, we were looking for sales to start sometime during April. Would Sprint follow along, and could we similarly see its own G2 Min availability begin in the next few weeks? For the moment, we’ve haven’t heard anything in specific, and imagine that some FCC paperwork will pop up before we see LS885 hit Sprint’s shelves.
