Would Donald Trump use an LG G6? Here’s a question that came to mind the author of these lines when writing. It maybe the smartphone is simply too big for the – supposedly small – hands of the reigning US president. A smaller version LG G6 mini would be just right. Luckily, LG is working on such a mini-version.
The edges are narrow, the displays are big – Samsung and LG have taken the utmost effort to deliver a handy overall package despite the large displays. However, Galaxy S8 and LG G6 have not become small smartphones. For the average man, the one-hand operation could still be in it, but smaller hands could be the doom. This insight apparently also shares LG and works on an LG G6 mini, which is to have a similar borderless design as the big brother.
LG G6 mini Specifications:
As TechnoBuffalo reports with a reference to a trustworthy source, LG is targeting a 5.4-inch diagonal display in the miniature version of the G6. The ratio should be 18: 9 as in the flagship model. This results in a display-to-housing ratio of almost 80 percent, which is roughly in the sphere of the G6. The latter has a 5.7-inch display.
LG G6 mini with 5.4 inches: Dimensions could be unrivaled
Assuming that the display-to-case ratio of both models is the same, the placement of the enclosure is a good 5 percent. Sounds like a little bit, but the size of the 148.9 x 71.9 mm of the G6 is only 141.1 x 68.1 mm for the G6 mini. For comparison: the Moto G4 with a 5-inch display measures 144.3 x 73 mm in the area, the Honor 8 brings it with 5.2 inches to 145.5 x 71 mm.
In addition, in this calculation game, the potentially smaller battery of the G6 mini has not yet been considered, which could contribute to a thinner housing. Of course, the figures are only estimates and are based on simplified assumptions, but the bottom line is likely to be the G6 mini but a handy smartphone – despite the nominally large screen.
There are no rumors about the technical data. Thus, it is unclear whether LG intends to position the G6 mini also as a top smartphone or rather to the middle class. There are also no hints as to when the release is to be expected.
