The South Korea-based company announced that it will host an event on May 30th, which might coincide with the release date of the LG Optimus G2. What makes is believe that the next-gen Optimus G will be announced on May 30th? Well, the press invitation says that “ImaGination Begins” and the letter G is standing out.
But before getting to optimistic, we should also mention that the Optimus GK might also see the light of day at the aforementioned event, a smartphone that recently leaked online. The LG Optimus GK is an interesting smartphone, sporting a 5-inch display with full HD resolution and a Snapdragon 600 chipset with four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz. The LG Optimus GK technical specifications list also include a 3,100 mAh battery, 16 GB of internal storage, and a 13 megapixel camera.
Optimus GK will most like run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box and before thinking that the LG Optimus G2 release date will be at LG’s May 30th event, learn that the rumor mill says that the new smartphone might be introduced in late summer or at IFA Berlin 2013.
To be honest, I would be glad to see the Optimus G2 in flash at this month’s event, as the new smartphone of the South Korea-based company might bring a revolutionary design, with the volume rocker on the back and an ultra slim case, if the rumors are accurate.
Since more and more sources are indicating that Google and LG will continue their partnership and the two companies will work together to develop the next-gen Nexus smartphone, unofficially dubbed Nexus 5, seeing the LG Optimus G2 later this month will give us some clues about the design and the technical specifications of the Neuxs 5.
Rumor has it that the LG Optimus G2 (and thus the Nexus 5) will come with a 5-inch full HD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2 GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel camera, and the latest Android iteration out of the box. The new smartphone will allegedly have a button-less front panel which coincides with Google’s phylosophy on how the Android-powered smartphone should be controlled.
