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.
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.
