LG Optimus G2 mouthwatering specs leak - 5" Full HD screen and 2GHz quad-core to arrive in May

LG Optimus G2 mouthwatering specs leak - 5
A Korean publication that often leaks news about Samsung and LG's mobile plans, now claims that the LG Optimus G2 has been pulled ahead of schedule and will be released concurrently with the eventual Galaxy S IV about six months from now. 

This puts the release for May next year, and the specs are what we would expect from a truly high-end Android in 2013 - the 5" Full HD LCD panel with 440ppi pixel density you see in the thumb image, supplied by LG Display itself, and a 2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon Prime processor with a frugal 3rd generation LTE radio inside.

Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is expected to run the show, and we hope LG Innotek comes with something even better than the 13 MP camera module that is in the current Optimus G flagship. There is no word on internal memory yet, but if LG wants the phone to be competitive, it will probably equip it with at least 32 GB, if not double that amount.

Lg needs to STOP FRONTING. If they didn't put out jellbean on the Optimus G when they had plenty of time they won't put out Key lime pie on the Optimus G 2. Samsung they will never be the Galaxy S4 as well as the Galaxy Note 3 will piss all over the Lg Optimus G 2. Matter of fact today my current Galaxy Note 2 s**ts all over the Lg Optimus G. .

Agree, LG has stepped up its game lately. But Key Lime Pie? This is reserved for a Nexus, right?

How can an Android version be reserved for one specific line of phones or tablets??? I don't think that's right...unless you heard it form a reliable source. I'm not sure too, but enlighten me when you find out!

My pleasure, the first release of a new version of Android has always been on a Nexus. Key Lime Pie will not be released before May or June.

Android 3.x (Honeycomb) was released just for tablet. Or does that not count because you don't remember it?

But lots of manufacturers made tablets with Honeycomb in it... We're talking about one line here...the nexus line, ding ding?

I still believe in Sammy, their Galaxy S line phones were the best 3 Times in a role, if not then 4 (Counting the Galaxy S IV)

This phone does have beastly specs! regarding the Key Lime Pie and any variant of an Android OS being "reserved".... to clear up the honeycomb argument, 3.0 was optimized specifically for ANDROID TABLETS, not specifically one manufacturer or model. Typically google releases the next version of Android on a Nexus model, which then typically trickles down to the next manufacturers flagship phones and from then on is released on the mid-grade and high end models until the next version is released. However, Google doesn't neccesarily have to follow the pattern it's gone down in the past, they could have already switched the game plan for the next few versions of Android, or not. We won't know for sure until 5.0 is released!

sounds like a good device from LG's camp if its released by MAy but they really need to work on their UI

As much as I love technology and phones but phone industries is just moving tooooooooo quickly. But its good though. Cant wait for Android 5.0 but 4.2 seems perfect to me! lol

It will be JB 4.2 unless this is a Nexus.

LG finally found itself. That's what I'm talkin' about. Focus everything on one flagship, like the S3 and the iPhone. that's sure to gain traction. that's why HTC fails in marketing - instead of releasing a One X+, they should have waited to create a Two X or something. Same with Sony and Motorola. Naming is unorganized and it doesn't stick to people's minds. It would have been better if they used Razr 2 and Razr 3... then something for Sony. people like follow ups and successors, it's proof that something was successful.

Agree SONY must create an ultra high end phone each year (Xperia BADASS maybe) and create something to succeed it by next year. Oh well their business strategy is somewhat different.

Xperia BADASS, Haha This is surely a memorable name.

@Xiaphias... What a coincidence... Even I suggested that same name (Xperia BADASS) once on Xperiablog... We think alike...:):):)

Not my Idea. Oh I see you were the one who posted that, I actually liked that name thus you see me here posting/suggesting that very same name.

Yes. The Prime has no internal radios/modems (3G, LTE, etc.), and if they went with an external radio, that would kill battery life. It is probably either the next Pro, or the "Next Gen Snapdragon", and it got misinterpreted as Prime.

"with a frugal 3rd generation LTE radio inside." Apparently it won't kill battery life.
