LG has a healthy habit of revealing “world’s first” devices. World’s first dual-core smartphone? Check. World’s first autostereoscopic 3D smartphone? Check. World’s first 3D-compatible tablet? Check. Eh, don't act like you don't remember the LG Optimus Pad.
Potentially adding to those accolades, we’re hearing that the imminent LG Optimus G2 might be the world’s first smartphone with 3GB of RAM. Interdasting.
LG’s current flagship, the Optimus G Pro, is certainly no slouch when it comes to specs, with a 5.5in 1080p display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 13MP rear camera and 2GB of RAM.
There’s not much room to maneuver, though previous rumours have suggested a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor – as found on the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A. Anything Samsung can do, LG can, eh, also do.
In addition, Korean-language site Naver says the LG Optimus G2 will rock a whopping 3GB of RAM for enhanced multitasking – a world’s first.
However, before you go getting too excited, there is a chance the 3GB of RAM will be exclusive to the LTE-A LG Optimus G2 in South Korea.
The LG Optimus G2 launch is expected to go down on August 7 in New York, with the phone possibly dropping the Optimus branding (i.e. LG G2 would go on the birth certificate) and shifting the volume rocker to the rear.
