Let’s be honest – it was us that decided the next big Smartphone from LG would be called the Optimus G2. Which of course seemed to be both logical and probable, given the success of the previous Optimus G. But low and behold, here comes another curveball to remind us all of the dangers of making assumptions and thinking we know what the tech-biggies of the world have planned for us.
We’ve just been credited with the first official statement on the device from the horse’s mouth and it turns out we’ll be seeing the LG G2 later this year – the Optimus branding apparently being ousted.
The date to mark in your calendar is August 7th, which is when LG has confirmed it will official unveil the G2 in all its mighty glory. And as expected, LG is confident as hell that the G2 will redefine what it means to be high-end in a market that’s becoming more and more crowded by the day.
“Our vision is to make LG’s newest G devices synonymous with excellence, raising the bar even further for the ultimate in user experience,” according to the statement from LG boss CEO Jong-seok Park.
“The new G2 will build upon the excellent reputation established by previous G Series products.”
Teasers have been plentiful and the rumor mill has been obsessed with the G2 for quite some time, which of course means we’ve already drawn quite a few conclusions as to what to expect from it. Unsurprisingly, the picture is a pretty impressive one.
The LG G2 will in all likelihood be another 5-inch 1080p HD device, which in this case will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU under the hood backed by up to 3GB of RAM. If so, it will at the time be the fastest Smartphone in the history of history…probably.
There will also be a 13-megapixel camera to the rear and most likely Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, unless Android Key Lime Pie makes a surprise appearance in the meantime.
