LG confirms G2 as Optimus G successor
LG has made an official announcement regarding a small change to the naming convention of its future phones. The South Korean phone maker is introducing a “premium” brand which will be marked with the letter “G”.
As such, LG’s press release states that “the next flagship device from LG Electronics (LG) will be officially known as G2”. That’s pretty much confirming the phone’s existence, as well as the fact that it will be the successor to the Optimus G.
LG also announced that its phablets will be renamed to simply “Vu”, as the company appears to drop the “Optimus” moniker from devices.
