LG counting on LG G2 to provide it with an extra sales boost for the second half of the year

We've already told you that LG has dropped the Optimus name from its high end devices and will use it now for its low to mid-end smartphones. As a result, the LG G2 is the name of the upcoming sequel to the LG Optimus G.
The LG G2 has a unique design. The volume rocker is on the back of the phone, along with the power switch. Under the hood will be a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with 2GB of RAM. And the 5.2 inch screen will bring a 1080 x 1920 resolution.
LG has been successful with it's G series which includes the LG Optimus G and the LG Optimus G Pro. And LG has also matched up feature for feature with the Samsung Galaxy S4 as both Korean manufacturers offer multitasking capabilities and other features that stop videos when you're not looking at the screen. The company will introduce the LG G2 at an international event on August 7th. A video of the LG G2 in action was recently leaked.

It still lags with 2.3Ghz quad core. Its good that google finally concentrating on optimizing the OS instead of going for the best processing power. Still its far behind compared to iOS and WP.

"It still lags with 2.3Ghz quad core" Excuse me, but how do you know this? Did you handle a Snapdragon 800 device before anyone else? I don't even think the Xperia Z Ultra has been released yet. I don't think you can actually say that unless you have handled a production device with the processor in it. As for abcdefgh's comment, I will go on the record as saying that I have experienced no lag on devices featuring the Snapdragon 600 processor. I would say for the most part, the problem with lag (on any Android 4.2+ device) is usually associated with custom skins run over top of the Android OS or if you are running multiple applications. I have read several articles in which rumors point to Key Lime Pie being the OS that will eliminate almost all of the remaining lag that wasn't completely driven out in Jelly Bean. The reason they suggest this is because it will only require low-end hardware to run in the first place (512 MB of RAM, 1 Ghz single-core processor, etc.). Of course, those are just rumors and I always take rumors lightly.
