LG ‘Optimus G2′ with 5-inch 1080p screen, 2GHz quad-core
LG is going to release a successor to the Optimus G successor – that rumor is hardly going to raise any eyebrows. However we also got to learn the some of the purported specs of the device and that’s where things get exciting.
The LG Optimus G2 (or perhaps G II) is reportedly going to pack a quad-core 2.0 or 2.5 GHz Krait processor, an Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM (at least). This sounds a lot like the Qualcomm’s MSM8974 chipset, which is a part of the chip maker’s upcoming Prime lineup.
At the front there’s going to be a newly developed LG display, which will have 1080p resolution. We already heard that LG is working on a 1080p screen for smartphones and it’s only logical that the Optimus G successor will be the first to employ it.
As for the camera, 13MP or more will be present for sure, since the current generation Optimus G is already offering 13MP snapper on its back.
Finally, the rumor has it that the Android version powering the next LG flagship will be 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
The Optimus G2 will hit the market next year and while LG is (supposedly) aiming at a Q3 release, which makes sense, given that the Qualcomm chipset is only going to become available in Q2 of next year.
