It’s almost four months since the LG Optimus G handset launched globally and it has also made its way to the United States over the AT&T and Sprint networks. There have been some rumors surrounding the successor to the Optimus G, though none of the previous leaks confirmed the possible time frame for it launch. According to a trusted source, the manufacturer is set to unveil its next Android flagship, the Optimus G2 in the Fall of 2013.
Today a company spokesperson has told CNET the upcoming LG is planning to release the Optimus G2 this Fall, and they are waiting to launch until Google unveils v5.0 Key Lime Pie, the next major version of the Android OS.
There’s no word on the specifications part of the Optimus G2 handset. However, the device would feature a display capable of the 1080p Full HD resolution (1920 by 1080 pixels), along with solid hardware under the hood, as well as Qualcomm’s latest mobile processor, and packs an impressively thin frame. With CES 2013 is over now, and Optimus G2 did not make its appearance in Las Vegas as we predicted earlier, but it should make an official appearance at the MWC event next month in Barcelona. We’ll be keeping our eyes on this one for more genuine information, so stay tuned for more updates.
