LG confirms G2 name for its next flagship smartphone. New Vu devices coming soon
LG has just issued a press release confirming that its upcoming flagship Android smartphone will be simply called LG G2. This will be the first product included in the “company’s new G premium brand.”
It looks like we’ll also have new “Vu” smartphones which, like the older Optimus Vu models, are going to sport displays with a 4:3 aspect ratio. However, the Optimus brand isn’t mentioned at all in the press release, so it’s not clear if LG will launch any Optimus devices from now on.
“Our vision is to make LG’s newest G devices synonymous with excellence, raising the bar even further for the ultimate in user experience. The new G2 will build upon the excellent reputation established by previous G Series products,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

The G2 is expected to be unveiled on August 7, but it will probably not hit shelves next month. From what we’ve previously heard, the handset will feature a 5.2 inch Full HD display, LTE-A, quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, dual speakers, 13MP rear camera with optical image stabilization and Led flash, 2GB of RAM, and a 2,700 mAh battery. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean should run the show.
