We haven’t heard much from LG here in the US, at least not since the Android Wear announcement a few weeks ago. However, a tease over at EVLeaks suggests that the LG G2 Mini is heading to the US, with its debut set for Sprint.
The LG G2 Mini was announced back in February at Mobile World Congress. It’s essentially a shrunken down, mid-range version of LG’s G2 flagship, which launched late last year. There’s not much information about its innards or whether it’s the same variant as the one we saw at MWC. For now, we’re just waiting on confirmation from the carrier.
LG itself isn’t doing too badly. A recent report from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech posits that LG’s marketshare has gone up in the US, to 8 percent, and that it’s hovering in third place for global Android marketshare. The growth in numbers could be attributed to LG’s shifted focus on flagship devices, rather than pushing units of its low- to mid-range Android-power smartphones.
For now, we’ll just hold tight until LG brings over its new family of devices here to the US.
