LG makes it official, Optimus is out; LG G2 is coming next
In the middle of last month, we passed along the word that LG was going to remove the Optimus name from its high end models and use it for its low to mid-range devices. That has been made official as word from Seoul reached around the world. Starting with the LG G2, future models in the series will use the letter 'G' to denote that it is a high-end LG model.

LG has already announced, in tandem with Qualcomm, the the latter's Snapdragon 800 will be powering the Korean manufacturer's 'G' series of smartphones. So that means that Qualcomm's top of the line silicon will be under the hood of the LG G2. Additionally, the device will support LTE-A which means a theoretical speed as high as 150Mbps.

LG also announced that the LG Optimus Vu line, known for its 4:3 aspect ratio, will be simply called Vu. In the U.S., you would know the device as the LG Intuition, which actually got to play a starring role on Celebrity Apprentice this year.
