Until now, we’d been pinning out hopes on the grand unveiling of the LG Optimus G2 at the 2013 Mobile World Congress next month, which would of course have meant an imminent release date for the beast. Sadly, it would now appear we’ll be waiting quite a deal longer to even be graced with a fleeting glance as the new LG flagship.
According to a new report posted by CNET, the LG Optimus G2 isn’t on the cards for an unveiling until as far ahead as the fall of this year. Chances are it will however make its grand arrival with a release date closer to June or early summer, which would mean almost exactly a year since the Optimus G arrived and took the market by storm.
This would all seem to be doom and gloom on the surface, but there is in fact a shiny silver lining or two to the cloud. First and foremost, an LG Optimus G2 release date pushed back to the summer means a VERY healthy possibility that it could launch with Android Key Lime Pie right out of the box. Should the expected February launch have gone ahead, Jelly Bean would have of course been the best we could hope for.
What’s more, the extra time would seem to suggest that LG is making every effort to kit out the Optimus G2 with the biblical specs and features we’ve come to expect. Rumor has is that the wish-list will be fulfilled by way of a might 2GHz quad-core processor, a good 3GB serving of RAM and a bezel-less 5-inch screen packing in 1,920 by 1,080 pixels. We’ll also most likely see a 13-megapixel camera bringing up the rear, and perhaps even an astonishing price-tag if LG continues the Nexus 4 trend.
We for one are already praying they will!
