The LG G2 Mini will be officially launched in the UK late this month, following its release in its home South Korea. If you want to buy one, Clove is the retailer you should be heading to.

The price you’ll need to pay is £249.99 (including VAT), and it includes free shipping. In terms of when to expect the LG G2 Mini at your doorstep, apparently “late April” is all that can be revealed right now. For an exact date stay tuned, and we’ll let you know which it is the instant we find out.

One thing you need to keep in mind, though: according to Clove, neither the price nor the availability have been officially confirmed by LG just yet. So either of these details may change ever so slightly before the LG G2 Mini actually lands in the UK.
