For die-hard LG fans that are out to buy a flagship smartphone device of the South Korean company, they have two choices at hand. One can pick up the LG Optimus Pro which comes with a spec sheet that is quite similar to the other biggies in the market (including the Snapdragon 600 chip as well) or can as well wait for the next big thing to come from LG, the Optimus G2 or simply the LG G2.
The smartphone has earlier been confirmed for a release in the third quarter though no specific dates have been made available so far. Of course, there has been no dearth of rumors and leaks doing the rounds, and the latest of them states that there is a high probability of the device coming before the end of summer, this year. In the light of recent developments, it is most likely that LG will be launching G2 in New York on August 7, 2013. However, before anyone gets too excited, there has been no official confirmation regarding the actual release date of the G2 so far.
Again, according to the rumors, it is expected that the device will be hitting shelves a few weeks later on August 20. The device will for the time being, be available in certain markets only, like Korea, after which it shall be available in other parts. This however contradicts the theory which had earlier mentioned that the handset is to release by the end of July, in Korea, so as to compete with Snapdragon 800 powered Galaxy S4 on the LTEA network.
Based on the information that has been gathered, the G2 comes with a 5.2 inch HD display, Snapdragon 800 quad core processor rated at 2.3 GHz, a 2 GB RAM along with Android Jelly Bean version 4.2.2. It is also supported by a 13 MP rear facing camera flanked with volumes keys and the physical power button, which it must be said makes for the most odd design. Whether such a design philosophy will make for a convenient user experience is already the topic of many a debate. However, we got to wait till the device finally reaches the consumers. Meanwhile, the package is completed with a 2700 mAh battery as well.
