LG is not trying to hide the fact that it’s launching a smartphone on August 7th, nor is the name a secret any longer.
The LG G2, nee Optimus, is going to be a considerably faster, thinner and more “future proof” smartphone than its predecessor. LG is attempting to market the phone much the way the Moto X will likely be sold, as learning from its users. “Learning from you” is a constant refrain in the teaser video released by the company today, going through the life of a human, mining stock photo libraries in the process.
The LG G2 is expected to have a 5.2-inch 1080p IPS display, a 2.3Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 13MP camera with optical image stabilization, and Android 4.2.2.
The main differentiator at this point, aside from the large display and razor-sharp specs, is a set of volume controls mounted on the back of the phone. This is likely due to the slim nature of the chassis, in addition to LG needing something to set the device apart from its competition.
We’re going to be in New York on August 7th to follow the LG G2 launch, so stay tuned for more.
