(Pocket-lint) - The LG G2 Mini is almost certainly on its way. Everyone is doing a mini version of their flagship phone these days and the latest trend, from the likes of Sony, is towards full specced handsets but just with a smaller screen. LG appeared to be following suit, until this quad-core handset showed up. But it should be arriving with Android 4.4 KitKat, which is a bonus.

Leaked specs of the handset appeared on a recent benchmark result where the handset was referred to as LG D-410, a name associated with the LG G2 Mini in the past. This showed it with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 540 x 960 resolution display and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Previous rumours have pointed towards a Snapdragon 800 processor, but this quad-core seems to be Snapdragon 400 - suggesting weaker specs than the LG G2 flagship. As for that resolution, it's likely to be on a 4.3-inch screen meaning an output of 256ppi, not great but not bad either.

And if it does come with Android 4.4 KitKat we'd expect it to be launching next year - so likely to be revealed at either CES in January or MWC in February.
