LG’s latest handset, the LG Mini, aims to cram all the high-spec features of a smartphone into what they are claiming is the world’s “smallest and slimmest” 3.2 inch touchscreen phone.
The LG Mini’s sleek 3.2 inch, 16:9 screen extends all the way to the edge of the phone and is completely free of face buttons.
There’s also some pretty nifty social networking tools on board, housed under LG’s Social Network Connect umbrella. Facebook and Twitter feeds are automatically updated on the phone, while new news concerning your contacts is automatically displayed in the Social Address Book.
Alongside these networking apps, there is also a 5MP camera with auto-face detection, A-GPS location awareness, HDSPA at 7.2Mbps and Wi-Fi.
“We developed the LG Mini in response to specific requests from actual consumers who were unhappy with current full touchscreen phones that are too bulky, too clunky and too expensive,” said Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The easily pocketable LG Mini delivers great looks at a reasonable price, with the trendy features that people want.”
The LG Mini will be hitting UK shops in April, with full specifications and pricing still to be confirmed.
