LG to hold international media event in NYC on August 7th
We have been expecting the sequel to the LG Optimus G which had been dubbed the LG Optimus G2. Considering LG's announcement involving the removal of the Optimus name from its top-shelf phones, we could see a whole new name for the phone during the event. Calling it the LG G2 might be a little confusing since there was an LG G2x, which you might recall as the U.S. version of the LG Optimus 2X. This was one of the first dual-core smartphones to hit the market.
Perhaps we will find out more about the mysterious LG handset we saw not once, but twice last month. This unnamed model had no front buttons, a thin bezel and a slight camera hump. It could be the LG Optimus G sequel, but we should know more after the event.
