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.
