Lately, we’ve been hearing a lot about the Optimus G2, well most people are calling it the LG G2 now. It’s said to launch in Korea a month before it’s announcement in the US. Now it’s worth noting here that this normally happens with LG and Samsung. They’ll release their flagships in Korea, their home land, before releasing them elsewhere or even announcing them. In fact the Optimus G last year launched in Korea ahead of the rest of the world.
Last week, LG sent out word to many of the press that they are holding an event in New York City on August 7th. Now they didn’t confirm what they are announcing. But all the rumors and leaks are pointing to the LG G2. What they did also confirm, however, is that the Optimus G successor will be powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor.
The other specs of the G2 have not yet been confirmed, but have been heavily rumored as usual. We’re expecting to see slim bezels, and an edge-to-edge display. But as usual with rumors, take this with a grain of salt.
The first Optimus G was announced back in mid-September 2012 and it launched in many countries along with the US on Sprint and AT&T. Many of you may remember that the Nexus 4 was heavily based off of the Optimus G last year. So there is the possibility that the G2 could be what the Nexus 5 (or whatever they call it) is based off of. Even though LG has said they are not working with Google on the next generation Nexus.
So we’ll have to wait until next month to find out more about the G2, and we’ll find out everything on August 7th, unless LG has something else up their sleeves. We’ll have to wait and see what happens here.
