This fall, we might witness a battle of Android titans, as two leading mobile phone makers are expected to launch their largest smartphones powered by the operating system.
We’re referring here to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which was somehow confirmed to be set for an official unveiling at the end of next month
, and the LG Optimus Vu 2, which emerged quite a few times on the web lately.
The same as their predecessors, these two smartphones are expected
to feature both high-end hardware inside, as well as impressively large touchscreen displays, thus being capable of impressing end-users in new ways.
The Galaxy Note 2 is rumored to land on shelves with a 5.5-inch touchscreen display, while packing a quad-core application processor inside, the same as the Galaxy S III did.
If so, it will most certainly leave Optimus Vu 2 behind, since LG is reportedly planning only a 5-inch touchscreen display on its device, complemented by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5 GHz dual-core processor.
Both handsets might land on shelves with Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right from the start, though some suggest that Samsung could up the ante and put Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on its behemoth.
Both these smartphones
are expected to arrive on shelves around the world sometime in September or October this year, and might provide users with LTE connectivity, at least in some of the markets where they will be available for purchase.
One way or the other, the two tablets are expected to make it to the headlines quite a lot in the near future, as the entire mobile industry appears to be moving towards larger screens and faster application processors.
They bring along the best of two worlds, packing both features and capabilities found in smartphones, and functionality that only tablet PCs can offer at the moment.
The same as its predecessor, Galaxy Note 2 is expected to become highly popular, yet Optimus Vu 2
might not remain too far behind either. In the end, it does seem to be the only smartphone capable of competing with Samsung’s beast.
