Latest LG rumours have suggested the Korean manufacturer is preparing to launch the LG Optimus G2, a Full HD follow-up to the LG Optimus G smartphone, as early as May 2013.
According to Korea’s MK Business News, “industry sources” say the next-generation smartphone will debut six months earlier than scheduled to go head-to-head with the expected launch of the similarly specced Samsung Galaxy S4.
The LG Optimus G2 (the handset’s provisional name) is reported to have a 5-inch 1080p Full HD display at a density of 440 pixels per inch. That will make it 1.5 times sharper than the iPhone 5‘s Retina display.
It is also expected to have a Qualcomm 2GHz quad-core chip and the Android 5.0 (Key Lime Pie) operating system. It would make it a significant step up from the recently launched LG Optimus G, which has a 4.7-inch screen and 1280 x 768 resolution.
Although all of these details are unconfirmed, if the next LG Optimus handset is only six months away, we can be sure of hearing more about it in the coming weeks.
Will the addition of a 1080p display make LG’s rumoured new smartphone a serious rival to the Samsung Galaxy S4? Discuss it on the Trusted Reviews Twitter and Facebook feeds or via the comments boxes below.
