Rumors about a mini version of LG G6 are flying. A recent leak has emerged suggesting that LG is prepping to launch a smaller variant of its flagship smartphone G6 with 5.4-inch display.
Dubbed as LG G6 mini (which obviously isn’t the official name), the smaller model will come with a screen-to-body ratio just under 80 percent while maintaining the 18:9 aspect ratio inherent in LG G6, the leaked report says.
It definitely might be a good idea to launch two variants of a flagship phone, which Samsung and Apple usually adhere to. But whether the LG G6 Mini will carry downgraded hardware or the same high-end specsheet as that seen on LG G6 is unclear as of now. But what stands to be the deciding factor in the the mini G6 variant’s road to success is the price tag LG will attach to it.
If LG decides to retain the G6 hardware in the mini version, in all likelihood the LG G6 pricing will be retained even for the 5.4-inch G6, which might not be a wise take. However, launching another variant of G6 with watered down specs and comparatively a lesser price might trigger the interest of many users in love with smaller display.
However, the entire report about LG working on a mini version of G6 with 5.4 inch display has been revealed by TechnoBuffalo courtesy an internal document provided to them by a trusted source. As LG has not yet given its official stamp to the LG G6 mini, it is advisable to take the news with a grain of salt.
