LG Optimus G2 teased before CES with 5.5-inch Full HD display

LG like to make the most of CES, with their broad product portfolio they can flex their technological muscles without fear of overdoing it and their mobile arm has seen a lot of activity, particularly in the US in recent years. Should talk surround a possible new flagship be true however, we’re hoping to see some of that activity make its way across the Atlantic.

Published late yesterday on LG Mobile’s YouTube channel was a mysterious video, promising great things from the Korean company’s CES press conference, set to take place next Monday morning. There are also brief glimpses at a device which many (including AndroidCommunity) believe is the successor the company’s current flagship which hit stores in the latter portion of 2012; the LG Optimus G.

Expected to be the Optimus G2, this unknown handset appears to feature on of the thinnest bezels to have ever graced a smartphone, as well as offering an incredibly thin profile. The specs surrounding the Optimus G2 include a vast 5.5-inch display with a full 1080p resolution as well as a 13-megapixel camera, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and unusually a possible 3GB of RAM.

The Optimus G was one of the first handsets to employ Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, so we can only assume the G2 will either make use of the same chip (perhaps clocked up to 1.7GHz) and will almost certainly need a mammoth battery to keep it in check. We’ll find out all about it after the weekend.
