There’s no denying that LG hit a home run with their Optimus G. We really didn’t see that phone coming, and we were quite pleased with our experience reviewing it. At first we though that the Optimus G Pro was a continuation to LG’s efforts in having additional presence in the Android market, but it seems that they’re not done yet as we’ve now discovered that there is an LG Optimus G2 in the works.
The LG Optimus G2 is now appearing in AnTuTu Benchmarks, which we’re very fond of, but if just one source isn’t credible enough for you, we’ve also discovered it getting its Bluetooth certification at Bluetooth SIG. AnTuTu reveals that there are actually three variants of the LG Optimus G2, and since we know how porting LTE to different countries is a nightmare, this means that the Korean company is working from day one on porting this device to more markets than just their homeland. So far the model numbers are the F320K, F320L and F340L.
The least special is the F320K which is powered by a 1.5GHz processor and runs on Android 4.1.2. The other two run on a 2GHz processor, and our biggest bet is that this would be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 since it’s the only chip capable of 2GHz in mobile. All this makes sense given that the Snapdragon S4 Pro debuted on the original Optimus G, and to top the news off, the last two models run on Android 4.2.2.
Other specs include the fact that it will have a 5.0-inch display with resolution maxing at 1920 x 1080, a 13 megapixel rear camera and 2.1 megapixel front camera. Sadly no news on release dates or photos of the device, but since the Optimus G was launched in the fall of 2012, it’s hard to assume that these devices will reach 2013 any sooner.
