South Korean mobile phone maker LG Electronics might be set to bring to the market a sequel for last year’s flagship Optimus G before the end of the third quarter of 2013, new reports on the matter suggest.The info reportedly comes from Won Kim, LG’s head of Mobile Marketing, who said recently that the company is getting ready for the launch of “something different and something unique,” as Engadget notes.
The smartphone is expected to be officially announced in the third quarter of the year, yet no specific release date has been provided as of now, it seems.
Furthermore, it seems that LG is set to make the new device official with a screen closer to the 5-inch mark rather than continuing the trend of 5.5-inch screens that it kicked off with the Optimus G Pro.
Unfortunately, no further details on the new handset have been provided for the time being, most probably due to the fact that LG is waiting for Galaxy S4 to land on shelves to see what it can do to counter it.
LG’s Optimus G did not manage to impress as much as the company would have wanted it to, but the upcoming mobile phone might prove more successful, especially since the company will have more time at its disposal to prepare it for launch.
Most probably, the vendor will focus on packing the smartphone with new features that would make it more appealing to users, the same as it tried with the Value Pack upgrade for the Optimus G Pro, which delivered features that Samsung’s users will receive only later this month when Galaxy S4 arrives.
LG’s Optimus G2 is expected to be an international smartphone, yet it remains to be seen when it will arrive exactly, and what capabilities it will have to offer to users, so stay tuned for more on the matter.
