A couple of weeks ago, LG had sent out invites for a 7 August New York City event with no hint of a product launch. Now, the company has rolled out another batch of invites to the media and a teaser video on YouTube, implying that the Optimus G2 launch is imminent.
Excerpts of LG's second invitation read:
"Great 2 Have You!
Place_New York City Date_August 7, 2013"
The bold characters in the first line can be easily deciphered that LG is indirectly confirming the launch of Optimus G2 next month.
LG Teaser Video:
The one-minute, 39-second teaser video tagline read as "To me, you are perfect. From G..." which points out that the NCY event is most likely to witness the launch of Optimus G2.
Speculations are rife that the LG phablet will sport a 5.2-inch Full HD display with 1920x1080p resolution and run on Android mobile OS v4.2 Jelly Bean with 3GB RAM.
Under the hood, it will pack the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series processor with an amazing CPU speed of 2.3GHz and come paired with Adreno 330 graphics. It would also support LTE-Advanced network for quality audio, video call connectivity and have twice the speed of data file transfer than the current 4G network.
In terms of camera specifications, Optimus G successor is expected to house a 13.0 megapixel main camera with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and a 2.1-megapixel secondary camera on the front side.
If rumours are to be believed, Optimus G2 is expected to hit global market stores in September this year, the very same month, South Korean rival Samsung is speculated to unveil the much anticipated third-generation Galaxy Note phablet in Berlin.
