LG Optimus G2 could be the first phone with 3GB of RAM for better multitasking
Korean publication claims that the LTE-Advanced version of the upcoming LG Optimus G2 will sport 3 GB of RAM for the first time. This  will likely translate to the global edition as well, where LTE-A will be turned off for the simple reason that no carrier but SK Telecom offers it yet on such commercial scale.

The sources mentioned that the three gigs will allow faster multitasking and watching a Full HD video while doing something else without hiccups, meaning LG plans on continuing with its QSlide Apps multitasking concept.

LG is no stranger to mobile "firsts", as it was the sole maker out of the gate with a dual-core handset and the first to out a 3D-enabled phone, not to mention it was first to introduce a phone with 2 GB of RAM with the Optimus LTE 2 last year, so there's every chance 3 GB in a pair of gig and a half modules will be present.

We are more interested in the G2 allegedly breaking Android's navigation buttons paradigm, placing some of them on the back, or maybe just the volume keys, but in any case something innovative is coming with this handset. The sources say it should be released soon after the Galaxy S4 LTE-A that is already on sale, so it shouldn't be a long wait.

LG's always 1st to upgrade but there's hardly anybody who cares.

nice, but I have to say that on my nexus7 I almost always have 300MB of free ram with 1GB total, so I guess that users won't notice much difference between 2 and 3, though it might be useful in the future.

If LG could just get more refinement in their execution of their devices, they'd be right up there with Samsung. LG are almost always the 1st to bring some awesome HW, and their latest phones are really good. I used a Optimus G earlier this year in an LG shop, nothing short of an amazing experience and their UI isn't that bad. :)

LG Optimus G is a stunning phone. The crystal reflections on the back is simply gorgeous. Too bad it had some cracking issues. I didn't find their UI to be the best though. Better than Samsung, touch Wiz though. The best UI i consider now is Sony's Xperia Timescape UI.

Because arm SoCs are 32-bit right now and that means that they canĀ“t use more than 3 GB RAM.
