LG Electronics (LG) has rolled out its LG G2 mini smartphone which sports a unique “knock” lock feature for enhanced security.
The G2 mini is preloaded with Knock Code, which enables users to power on and unlock their LG smartphones in one easy step by tapping a personalized “knock” pattern on the phone’s display, the technology company says.
Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company says “the compact G2 mini offers a combination of design, hardware and UX features previously unavailable in its class, making it a very attractive option for mid-tier markets. With the G2 mini, our objective is to allow a much larger consumer base to be able to experience the key benefits of the G2 UX in a smaller form factor. And to that end, we’re confident we’ve succeeded with the G2 mini.”
The 4.7-inch qHD IPS display screen smartphone comes with a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Quad-Core processor, a 2,440mAh removable battery, Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, 8.0 megapixel/13.0 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front camera, 1GB RAM and 8GB internal memory.
LG G2 mini will be available in several variations 3G/4G LTE, Single/Dual SIM and four colour options including Titan Black, Lunar White, Red and Gold depending on the region.
Roll-out will being in April in CIS countries followed closely by markets in Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. Details of availability in these and other countries will be announced locally in the weeks ahead, LG says.
