The remarkable success of LG-made Nexus 4 has stirred anticipations for the Nexus 5, but LG is focusing on Optimus G2 slated for a Q3 2013 release, according to EVLeaks. EVLeaks, on a Twitter post, revealed an image of the prototype of Optimus G2 flaunting an edge-to-edge screen and slim bezels with no navigation buttons. It does signal that LG is busy expanding its Optimus range of devices.
Tech website AllAboutPhones gives more definite evidence quoting the words of LG mobile’s Wong Kim. The executive said that “LG Optimus G2 is coming in Q3.” He also emphasized that the device will feature something unique and creative, adding enough suspense to fuel expectations.
The LG Optimus G2 will likely run the latest version of the Android OS, though it is unclear whether it will be the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean or the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. The latter has yet to make its debut.
Reports about LG and Nexus 5 were too vague, but several rumors suggested that LG is working on the Nexus 5. Recently, Korean website Daum.net said that LG has already devised a prototype of the device. But, more recently, an LG spokesperson said that LG was currently not working on Nexus 5, but it would not refuse an opportunity to do so.
Another report said that LG Megalodon could be the Nexus 5, drawing from leaked images of the device. LG seems to be working on new technologies to incorporate innovations to its new products to compete with dominant players like Samsung, Apple, HTC and Sony. For now, the only choice for Nexus fans is to wait until there is more news on the Nexus 5.
