Rumour mills on the internet are churning out some pretty impressive specifications of the upcoming LG Optimus G2 (or G II). The smartphone is expected to have a 5-inch full HD (1920x1080 pixel) display which means that it will have a pixel density of 440 ppi - leaving the likes of the Apple’s Retina Display far behind.
In terms of other specifications under the hood, the G2 will have a quad-core 2.0 or 2.5GHz Krait processor, an Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM. According to GSMArena, “this could be a part of Qualcomm's MSM8974 chipset, which is a part of the chip maker's upcoming Prime lineup”. The rear of the device is expected to house a 13MP camera.
The final bit of information, and this is the kicker is that the smartphone will run on Google’s next gen OS, Android 5.0, Key Lime Pie. The LG Optimus G2 is expected to hit the market in Q3 of next year.
