LG Optimus G 2 coming in Q3: Report

LG Optimus GLG’s Head of Mobile Marketing Won Kim has revealed to Engadget that LG will launch its Optimus G successor in Q3 this year. If the recent benchmark leaks are any indication, the successor will be dubbed as Optimus G 2.

Kim also hinted that the smartphone will keep a display size closer to 5-inches and would not wander in the 5.5-inch category. Some of the other vague remarks that he made included that the Optimus G successor will be “something different and something unique.”

LG Optimus G 2 will be released globally, added Kim.

This news takes the possible announcement of LG Optimus G 2 on May 1 in New York out of question, so, we will most probably see Optimus G Pro at the event for the US market.

The benchmark listing that we talked about earlier in the post had revealed some of the key specifications of Optimus G 2 and that it will arrive on T-Mobile in the US. Here is a look at those specs:

  • 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) processor
  • Adreno 330 GPU
  • Full HD 1920x1080p display
  • Android 4.2.2
