LG prepping Optimus G2 with 2GHz CPU and Android 5.0
LG is tipped to already be working on the follow up to 2012’s LG Optimus G. Known as the Optimus G2, the handset is reported to pack in some killer specs and hardware
Fresh off the back of its recent success with masterminding the Google Nexus 4, LG is reportedly back at the drawing board putting together its flagship for 2013: the LG Optimus G2.
LG’s presence in the UK isn’t what it once was, largely thanks to the rise of HTC and Samsung during recent years, but the advent of the Nexus 4 could well put the company back on UK punters' radars.
We love the Nexus 4 and cannot wait to test out LG’s Optimus G, which is expected to land in the UK imminently. The device, which is similar to the Nexus 4 in many ways, features a 13-megapixel camera, support for LTE, and more storage options.
But while the Optimus G may sound impressive, it’s nothing compared to what LG’s cooking up for 2013.
MK is reporting that the new device, expected to debut in May 2013, will feature a 2GHz processor, a 1080p display with a pixel density of 440 pixels per inch, and Google’s as-yet-unannounced Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
LG will apparently unveil the handset at some point in 2013, perhaps at CES 2013 or Mobile World Congress, with a view to launching the handset in May, claims the report.
Could this also be the reference design for the next Google Nexus handset?
