KOREAN PHONE MAKER LG reportedly is planning to release a downsized version of its LG G2 smartphone, which could debut at next year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

So said technology website Techblog.gr, which reported that the LG G2 Mini is likely to debut at CES in Las Vegas in January.

Set to follow in the footsteps of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and HTC One Mini smartphones, LG's cut down G2 smartphone likely will have a 4.7in display instead of the 5.2in screen of its flagship predecessor. Techblog.gr noted that it's still unclear whether the LG G2 Mini's screen will be "full HD", but said its likely that the display will have 1920x1080 resolution.

Other rumoured specifications are vague, with the report claiming that the phone will also feature a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM.

While we don't know much else about the rumoured LG G2 Mini smartphone, we'll assume that it will also feature Google's Android mobile operating system, rear-facing physical keys and dual cameras.

News of a sequel to the LG G2 comes amid reports that the phone hasn't been selling well. According to a report at Phandroid, LG has shifted 2,250,000 G2 smartphones despite aiming for sales of three million. 600,000 of these reportedly were sold in Korea alone, suggesting that the phone has struggled to distract UK and US punters from the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Apple iPhone 5S.

We'll be at CES in January, so check back then for all the latest on the LG G2 Mini smartphone. µ
