New rumor grows the LG Optimus G2 Full HD screen to 5.5 inches, coming H1
Grrr, just when we though we had the Optimus G successor all squared away, and filed its rumored specs on the "upcoming" shelf waiting for the first spy shots, now the screen got watered regularly, and grew to 5.5 inches.

The previous rumor was for a 5" Full HD display, like the one on the Droid DNA, with 440ppi density. This is entirrely plausible, since LG has demonstrated such screen of its own making numerous times. The other specs included a 2 GHz quad-core of the Snapdragon S4 family, 2 GB of RAM, 13 MP camera, and a 3rd-gen LTE radio inside.

These stay in the new rumor, but the 1920x1080 pixels screen goes up to 5.5", with the Korean manufacturer changing its mind on the fly about the screen, claims the Korean newspaper source. The article implies that the phone will hit retail before June next year, and the screen size decision has something to do with the Galaxy S IV launch, which is expected to show up with a 5" Full HD display of its own.

This phone will offer alternative to Note 2. Note 2 is a great phone no doubt, but this LG phone looks great too or even greater. I love competition.

Whatever phone you love is the product of technology. As technology kept moving, so should the products of it. If you want to remain in the past, feel free to. I however accept these improvements.

Maybe when you evolve into flaffy and then Ampharos you will understand the need for phones to get bigger and better always. But for now you probably aren't even level 15, unless you are holding an everstone.

Agreed. The only way to pull this off would be witht he unbreakable screen concept and that seems to be Samsung's deal.

Really, Note 2 screen is no match to this monster, and note 2 design is boring. We must see how this LG phone looks and then say which 1 is better.

As a consumer you should welcome this. Competition makes Samsung give you better products. No competition; Samsung may end up being worse that Apple

So longer pixel density and lower resolution mean nothing to you? I would take this beast over the note 2. More processing power, better screen.

5" DNA, eh almost too big but still okay. 5.5" phone. Nope. I call quits now.

But without stylus this thing will be useless. So LG should launch this with 'L pen', and with some software tricks of Note2.,.,,
