Update – The LG 2 Specs are now official and they are as expected to be very competitive.
The specs list of the upcoming LG G2 is now rumored to include a bigger screen than initially believed and a better camera.
The LG G2 is the expected name of the LG Optimus G’s successor, as the company is said to drop the “Optimus” from its flagship device family.
Greek site Techblog has apparently learned that the future LG flagship will feature a 5.2-inch LCD IPS display with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution and 423 ppi, instead of the 5-inch panel mentioned by previous rumors.
Additionally, the 13-megapixel camera of the handset is now said to come with optical image stabilization technology, a feature that’s also expected to be seen in Samsung’s next Galaxy Note model.
The LG G2 is also expected to pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, and physical buttons placed on the back on the device.
The publication says that the volume buttons on the back – as seen in recently leak images – will offer various functions including zooming and volume control. A power button should be located between them.
Furthermore, a report coming from South Korean website ETNews, reiterates the fact that the LG G2 could pack fingerprint recognition technology, according to the images that were leaked a week ago. Thus, LG would beat Apple and Samsung with products to market featuring fingerprint-reading capabilities. The next-gen iPhone is rumored to come with fingerprint recognition features, and Samsung’s future Galaxy smartphones are also expected to pack similar powers.
The publication speculates that LG may have intentionally leaked those pictures.
However, we’ll remind you that no matter what rumors say, the LG G2 is yet to be officially unveiled. The device is expected to be announced in early August during a New York-based event.
