South Korean mobile phone maker LG Electronics is expected to bring to the market a successor for its high-end Optimus G smartphone as soon as next year, and new reports suggest that the phone might be launched in May.
Furthermore, rumor has it that the upcoming device would be able to easily prove one of the best smartphones out there, the same as Optimus G1 did this year.
Supposedly dubbed LG Optimus G2, the mobile phone should be able to easily compete against flagship devices such as Galaxy S IV from Samsung and other similar high-end phones.
According to a recent article on MK, LG plans on packing the smartphone with a quad-core processor with each core clocked in at 2GHz.
In fact, the company is said to have partnered with Qualcomm for the inclusion of its Snapdragon S4 MSM8974 chipset inside the upcoming device.
At the same time, the smartphone is expected to arrive on shelves with a full HD touchscreen display, something that has been rumored before.
Apparently, this would be a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel panel capable of delivering a pixel density of 440ppi. Reportedly, LG has already started to produce the screen.
The handset might also hit the market with the next flavor of Google’s Android operating system loaded on it.
Nothing has been officially confirmed on the existence of this smartphone for the time being, and we should take the info above with a grain of salt, yet chances are that the rumor will pan out in the end.
After all, Samsung is also expected to launch a successor for its Galaxy S III smartphone next year, namely the Galaxy S IV, and LG will certainly want to release a device capable of competing with it toe-to-toe. Keep an eye on this space for additional updates.
