LG G2 to feature 5.2-inch Full HD display, 13-megapixel camera with OIS

LG G2 is expected to be the name of the successor to the LG Optimus G, which would drop the “Optimus” name because the South Korean Company seems to have decided to abandon it in the next flagship smartphone. Reportedly, the smartphone would feature a larger display and a better camera than previously expected.

This top range Android smartphone from LG would integrate a 5.2-inch Full HD display of a resolution 1920 x 1080 pixels with 423ppi and a 13 megapixel camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) technology, a feature that is expected to be integrated even in Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Talking about the rest of the specifications, the LG G2 would include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, a fingerprint recognition technology that has already been in talks for the next iPhone 5S which aims to provide a greater level of security. Apart from this, the smartphone is also expected to have LTE-A support.

The LG G2 will not feature any physical button around the chassis. Rather, it would have them on the back of the device. Specifically, these buttons should provide direct access to various functions, including the camera zoom, volume control and power button.

The LG G2 has not yet been officially confirmed, but it should be presented in early August in a special event organized by LG in New York. The smartphone is expected to hit the retail stores in the third quarter of 2013.

It would be interesting to watch the first smartphone to sport 3GB of RAM which will go one on one with the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 3, also rumored to feature a 3GB RAM.
