CES 2013 is literally around the corner (er, assuming there’s some literal corner we’re about to turn), and the smartphone and tablet-related rumours are flying thick and fast.
The latest contender for CES 2013-ness is something called the – wait for it – LG Optimus G2. What the…?
The original LG Optimus G was officially unveiled just a few months ago in South Korea. September, to be specific.
Of course, it was never released in the UK, and ultimately kinda sorta became the Google Nexus 4.
With regards to the successor, DigiTimes says: “South Korea-based LG Electronics plans to showcase the Optimus G2 Android smartphone [at CES], with a 5.5-inch screen, and Qualcomm quad-core S4 Prime MSM8974.”
And that’s it. Nothing more. No mention of anonymous sources from the “upstream supply chain” or anything.
Other rumoured LG Optimus G2 specs at this stage include a whopping 3GB of RAM, and a 13MP rear camera.
Giving a modicum of credence to the LG Optimus G2 notion is an official LG CES 2013 teaser video over on YouTube, which gives the tiniest of glimpses at a device that, well, could be the LG Optimus G2, I guess.
