CES 2013: LG confirms ‘tier one’ handsets for MWC and beyond

CES 2013: LG confirms ‘tier one’ handsets for MWC and beyondIt’s been a funny old time of late for the other South Korean mobile manufacturer, LG. It was considered one of the runts of the Android litter, but recently enjoyed significant success with the Google Nexus 4.

As such, we’re really interested to see how consumers react to this year’s “tier one” handsets from LG, which in all likelihood won’t have Nexus branding.

Unless I’m hugely mistaken, LG hasn’t unveiled much/anything in the mobile realm at CES 2013 (other than a ‘Panorama Note’ feature for the LG Optimus Vu II).

Instead, James Fishler, LG’s senior VP of marketing, promised awesome stuff is coming soon, including as-yet-unspecified goodies at Mobile World Congress.

Fishler crooned: "At MWC next month, and throughout the year, we'll be bringing more tier one handsets, in various screen sizes.”

One handset we’ve been whispering about over the past couple of months is the LG Optimus G2. Incidentally, it was expected to debut at CES 2013. Clearly that ain’t happenin’.

When it does finally arrive, LG Optimus G2 specs are tipped to include a 5.5in 1080p display, 13MP rear camera, quad-core Qualcomm processor, and 3GB of RAM. Sounds suitably “top tier” to us.

Fingers crossed we’ll be meeting the LG Optimus G2 at MWC next month.

Shame it'll have software made by LG...they've never had a problem churning out decent hardware, its their awful software and software support which causes them so many problems.
