Now that the LG G4 launched to a mostly enthusiastic initial reception, a petite version of it might be in tow.
A Dutch retailer has listed a device by the name of LG G4c, its model number being LG-H525N. The release date posted, May 12, doesn't make much sense considering the device hasn't been announced, or otherwise acknowledged by LG, but the date might be a mistake on the retailer's part.

Otherwise, it isn't known what the compact LG G4 will offer in terms of design and specs. But if more manufacturers followed Sony's Xperia Compact blueprint, the world would have been a better place for those who'd like their handsets smaller, but non-compromised in terms of hardware power. But priced at around $330, this LG G4c will probably pack a modest configuration.
While smartphone manufacturers do tend to come up with compact versions of their flagship devices, it's difficult to understand why the company would want to release one (assuming that it is) so quickly.
The relatively low pricing suggests the device may not be very impressive in the specs department or it could simply be a mid-range variant of the LG G4, similar to the LG G3 Beat/S from last year.

Needless to say, none of this has been officially confirmed, so take it with a heavy dose of salt. We should find out more about the device very soon as the retailer website states the device will be available May 12th onwards.
