Sony’s recently announced monster phablet the Xperia ZU has already set the pace on fire and with the Snapdragon 800 powered “upgraded” version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 awaiting for the flag at the pit stop, LG cannot sit and watch the high definition action with it’s flagship lagging behind in terms of silicon power. LG has been known to be the leader in the ”I Come First, I Take the Lead” race and thus it just cannot take any more of damage on the lost pride. They delivered you the Optimus 2x which was the world’s first dual core mobile phone and they did it again with the first quad core krait powered LG Optimus G which later on served to be the blueprint to the flagship Nexus device too! With the Snapdragon 800 catching the beat of the scene, it seems that the South Korean firm has finally started to tease it’s super-power flagship in front of the world, the LG Optimus G2.
LG Optimus G2 Specifications:
- Snapdragon 800 chip with processor clocked at 2.3GHz
- 5.2-inch 1080 x 1920 Full HD IPS display
- 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization (OIS)
- Dual speakers
- Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
- Smart DMB supported (Digital multimedia broadcasting for South Korea)
- LTE-Advanced supported
- Built-in wireless charging
The LG Optimus G2 is touted to be running upon Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chipset whose four Krait 400 cores are speculated to out perform any other chipset by miles and is currently found to be powering the Xperia ZU(Togari) and the upgraded and LTE capable Samsung Galaxy S4.
From the shots above, the LG Optimus G2 looks to have a touch of elegance running all over the power it possesses inside while one of the key things to be noticed here remains as the unorthodox placement of the volume rocker. We still can’t figure out anything that special about it but the size of the keys that look to be much suited for the finger’s convex. Further, the phone will run on Android 4.2.2 which means no Android 4.3 for the time being.
Now, all being said and shown, it should not take much longer for LG to unwrap the covers off from the much awaited starlet because with global competitors like Sony and Samsung already having thrown in their dies in the game, LG will have to cover a long long way up if it has to catch up with the competition which has already received much of an applause even before making it to the shelves!
