LG Optimus G2 to have a 5.5 inch 1080p display?

Back in November, we told you that LG would launch a new Android flagship handset next year, as the successor to the Optimus G (pictured below). Possibly called LG Optimus G2, the upcoming smartphone should compete with the Samsung Galaxy S 4, and other high-end devices that will be released in 2013.

According to Korean publication Asiae, the Optimus G2 will not have a 5 inch display, as previously reported, but a 5.5 inch one. Its resolution will be 1920 x 1080 (Full HD). If this turns out to be true, the new Optimus will compete with the Galaxy Note II rather than the Galaxy S 4.

Anyway. The G2 (or whatever it’s going to be called in the end) should also feature Android Key Lime Pie (probably version 5.0), LTE connectivity, 2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Prime processor, and an advanced camera on the back.

Both LG and Samsung will be late in delivering 1080p smartphones. HTC has already released its 5 inch Droid DNA / Butterfly. Sharp and Oppo have also introduced handsets will Full HD screens.

Until next year, LG hopes to sell 35 million smartphones in 2012. It already shipped more than 10 million L-Series handsets (L9, L7, L5 and L3), but it did not disclose sales numbers for the rest of its smartphones.

    And just like all other (non Nexus) LG phones so far the OS fork of Android will SUCK farts out of dead cats.

    It will get minor sales and then die fast.

    LG should just outsource the OS dev, they can’t get it right. Their updates are abysmally slow, there are tons of bugs and the speed that they can get out of the hardware is just sad.

    Nice hardware though (if you don’t mind their QA issues).
