Has the LG Optimus G2 release date drive taken precedence over the Nexus 4?
Recent industry reports have suggested that the main reason for a distinct lack of LG Nexis 4 units in circulation is the way in which the company originally decided that its efforts were best invested elsewhere. As of today, it would appear that this may have indeed been the case and we’re about to see the fruits of said reinvested efforts, in the form of the upcoming LG Optimus G2.
For the first time, an extensive list of specs and features has leaked its way onto the web, confirming that the LG Optimus G2 may indeed live up to even the highest expectations. Along with a full HD 5-inch display packing 1,920 by 1.080 pixels, the LG Optimus G2 will reportedly land with a 13-megapixel camera, quad-core 1.7GHz processor, 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, a whopping 2,000mAh battery and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in the driving-seat.
A slender beast if ever there was one, the report also goes on to suggest that the Optimus G2 will measure in at 139mm by 70mm by 10mm, with a weight of just 160 grams.
Previous rumors had pointed to an LG Optimus G successor launching in the near future with a 5.5-inch screen, 2GHz quad-core processor and up to 3GB of RAM. As such, some are speculating that there could indeed be two very significant release dates on the cards for LG in the near future, though in all likelihood a single flagship device will be unveiled at the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.
With such specs and features, the LG Optimus G2 will be heading into direct contention with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the HTC M7, the iPhone 6 and the Sony Xperia Z at the upper-end of the 2013 Smartphone stakes.
