    Feeling a little confused about the rumored LG G3 Mini? We don't blame you, as there's been a lot of talk of different specs, not to mention different names, surrounding the hardware. Late last month we saw an LG G3 Beat for China, a five-inch device that might have been pushing the limits of how large a “Mini” phone could be (but maybe that's exactly why LG gave it a different name). Then just overnight we shared with you the user manual for a device dubbed the G3 S, and while the docs didn't reveal a lot of technical detail, the idea that this could be the Western version of the G3 ...

    It seems the new cool thing for OEMs to do is release a "mini" version of their flagship phones a couple months after the initial release. LG doesn't look to be bucking the trend, as a German LG G3 S user manual has leaked, allegedly showing off a "mini" G3. This supposed G3 S has model number D722V, meaning this is a Vodafone phone. It runs a custom build of Android 4.4.x KitKat, meaning LG has sprinkled its own software goodies atop AOSP -- it looks like some features, like the ability to take selfies with gestures, have been carried over. Apart from all that, nothing else has come about ...

    Rumors about an LG G3 Mini have been bumping around since well before the G3 itself made its debut, and lately those rumors have talked about the G3 Mini correcting one big oversight from the G2 version of the phone: that whole “mini” angle. Because while with a 4.7-inch display the G2 was legitimately smaller than the 5.2-inch G2, we're much more used to Mini-branded phones coming in around 4.5 inches or smaller. And indeed, rumors earlier this month pointed to the possibility of a 4.5-inch G3 Mini. But today we're learning about a new G3 family member, one with a 5.0-inch display, ...

    One week back we heard about LG's model VS880, supposedly destined to find a home at Verizon as the G Vista. Fair enough - Verizon certainly has a penchant for assigning new names to the phones it picks up – but just which device would the G Vista be? Well, the G3 on Verizon is expected to be VS985, and the G2 last year was VS980. We've heard suggestions that the G Vista VS880 could be something like a G Pro 2 or a Mini version of an LG phone, but we lack model numbers for Verizon-specific variants to compare this to, and LG's numbering scheme makes it difficult to extrapolate numbers ...

    The LG G3 may be getting a warm reception, but it wasn't long ago that we were being quite critical of the manufacturer's latest Android. Back in February LG launched the G2 Mini (above), a phone that really wasn't that “mini” to begin with, and failed to measure-up to the G2 proper when it came to performance. But just a couple months later, we were already hearing about a possible G3 Mini; would LG be quick to deliver a new Mini model that was capable of making a more impressive showing? While that remains to be seen, some new evidence is painting the picture of a much more petite ...

    LG's been cooking up its G3, and the smartphone should launch with a high-res 2K display. And really, for about the past month or so now, that model's dominated our coverage of LG news. Today we mix things up a little by looking past the G3 itself to some other upcoming LG devices, with new leaks pointing not just to the existence of a couple new LG tablets, but also to a possible G3 Mini. News already of a G3 Mini is pretty exciting, especially after the G2 Mini only just launched back at MWC. We were also a little let down with the G2 Mini's hardware (not to mention its size), so we're ...
