LG’s 1080p Optimus G2 Rumored For Spring Launch

The LG Optimus G may certainly be an impressive phone, but we’ve already started to piece together the story of the company’s follow-up flagship device. HTC got the ball rolling on 1080p smartphones with its Droid DNA, and now plenty of the other OEMs look ready to follow suit; we already caught wind of at least one LG 1080p model in some benchmark results earlier this month. Now a new report claims that LG is preparing to release the so-called Optimus G2 sometime around next May.

Like that model we saw in the benchmarks, the G2 would supposedly employ a 1080p display. We’re not sure if that model, identified as the F240, is prototype G2 hardware or just another LG handset with some comparable specs. Not everything matches up with these G2 rumors, for instance, as while they showed the F240 running a Snapdragon S4 Pro at 1.5GHz, the G2 is supposed to move up to an S4 Prime at 2.0GHz.

The G2 would also supposedly employ a next-gen LTE chip and arrive running the latest Android, which should be Key Lime Pie by that point.

While it’s never great to see your brand-new phone replaced with a higher-end version less than a year after its release, we’re nonetheless excited to see how LG could make the original Optimus G even better.
