LG Optimus G2 Appears to Be Dominating GLBenchmark


There is a new top dog over on GLBenchmark (at least for some tests), an LG handset identified as model D801. With all this talk abut the original Optimus G possibly seeing a premature end, we’re quite curious to learn about what other hardware LG might have on the horizon, so this very high-end device certainly piqued our interest. Digging a little deeper into the D801’s listing, and it appears that this phone could actually be the Optimus G’s sequel, the Optimus G2.

Sure enough, the handset identifies itself as “g2_tmo_us”, so it’s apparently in testing over at T-Mobile. The phone appears to be running Qualcomm’s MSM8974, a number you’ll be hearing a lot more of in the near future, as it’s none other than the company’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 800. That seems confirmed by the presence of an Adreno 330 GPU.

We also get to see specs like a 1080p display that fit with what we’re expecting for the G2; sure, this could be faked, and just showing us what we want to see, but without any evidence to the contrary, it’s still pretty compelling. If what we’ve heard is correct, LG could plan to debut the G2 at the IFA this summer; that makes this testing pretty darn early, so things like the presence of Android 4.2.2 may change between now and its release (assuming 5.0 is forthcoming).
