Android OS has given life to smartphones companies in regaining their market shares. LG also regained its market share through “G” series. Recently LG launched its most powerful device Optimus G2.
The LG G2 is rumored to be one of the most interesting smartphones that will debut in the second half of the year and after we’ve seen tons of blurry photos of the LG Optimus G follow up, we now get to see the first clear photos of the next-gen LG flagship smartphone.
The successor to the LG Optimus G, the LG G2, has been caught in a few snapshots.
The Optimus G2 will have a 5.2″ IPS display with 1080p resolution and a razor thin bezel (which we saw in the photos). It will launch with Android 4.2.2 running on a Snapdragon 800 chipset with four Krait 400 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and 2GB of RAM (LG is reportedly considering moving up to 3GB). The chipset also enables 150Mbps LTE-Advanced 4G connectivity. A removable 2,700mAh battery will feed all this.
The camera is pegged at 13MP with unusual buttons right next to it, which will serve multiple functions. There are dual-speakers on the bottom.
The LG Optimus G2 is supposedly based on work LG is doing on the Nexus 5, but that will be announced only after the G2 – October 5 says the rumor. The Nexus successor will reportedly bring Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, though we’ve barely started seeing 4.2 Jelly Bean come out.
Techtastic has leaked what is apparently the left side of the LG G2 and since the volume buttons have been moved to the back, we are looking at a button-less side and an overall sleek and thin device. Granted it isn’t the best quality picture we’ve ever seen, but it’s still a look at the upcoming smartphone.
The event is planned for August 7, but the device will launch in its home market a couple of weeks later on August 20 according to the new info.
