LG teases LG Optimus G2 for CES 2013

LG may have just teased its forthcoming LG Optimus G2 ‘phablet’ hybrid device prior to a likely CES 2013 debut.

The Korean company has just released a brief preview video to drum up anticipation ahead of its showing at the Consumer Electronics Show, which is being held in Las Vegas from January 8 to 11. LG will be conducting a press conference ahead of the show itself on January 7.

As you can see from the screen grab, LG has a suspiciously smartphone-like device in the works. A very sleek smartphone with an ultra-thin bezel.

We’d agree with Android Community that this looks likely to be none other than the LG Optimus G2 that has leaked out previously.

The LG Optimus G2 is set to be LG’s contribution to the current large-screen HD smartphone trend. It’s rumoured to feature a 5.5-inch 1080 display and a quad-core GPU.

Some rumours suggest that the processor could be clocked at a whopping 2GHz and may even be backed by an unprecedented 3GB of RAM. The device is also rumoured to sport a 13-megapixel camera.

All of which places the LG Optimus G2 up against such devices as the Sony Xperia Z and the Huawei Ascend Mate – both of which are also expected to make a showing at CES 2013.

What do you think LG’s chances are against the opposition? Has the success of the Google Nexus 4 given you more reason to pay attention to the company’s next phone? Discuss it on the Trusted Reviews Twitter and Facebook feeds or via the comments box below.
