When it comes to corporate rivalry in the smartphone market, many people seem to believe that the Google vs Apple rivalry, or the Samsung vs Apple rivalry are the... two best examples one can come up with. But from where I’m standing, the LG vs Samsung battle represents the biggest and most intimate rivalry that you are ever going to see.

Just think about...

LG Optimus G

The Optimus G hasn’t been a mystery for quite some time now, with Qualcomm basically confirming rumors of the handheld’s coming last week. We knew G’s spec sheet, we had a good idea of how the super-phone will look, so it was about time LG made it official.

Samsung-Stratosphere-2

With the original Samsung Stratosphere reaching the ripe age of one year old on Verizon, it’s about time for Big Red to release a refreshed model of the slider. Just so happen, the Stratosphere 2 is one of two new phones that are listed on Verizon’s equipment guide for the second half of the year.

LG Optimus Intuition

We’ve known about the 5″ Optimus VU: and plans of being put on Big Red’s lineup for quite some time. But what we didn’t know was exactly how this phablet would appear once fully garnished in Verizon’s branding. Leaked press photos have just surfaced and looks are not the only revealing thing; a possible Q3 release is in store.

As we move further into the second half of the year, manufacturers are racing to release the next big Android device. For one, LG has confirmed the existence of the Optimus G and its high-end specs. While the phone will only be officially unveiled at the IFA 2012 event in Berlin at the end of the month, pictures of the Optimus G have popped up online.

LG Optimus LTE2

Some time ago, we brought you news of LG’s intent to create a new flagship phone. They now have a video teaser site up that shows just that and nothing more. The name has been switched from the ‘D1L’ and will be a ‘2nd gen’ quad core device, unlike the 4X HD which hit Europe in June.

LG

There you have it, folks, the second ever confirmed phone powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 proc, after Xiaomi’s Mi2 “beast”. This unnamed LG device has also been confirmed as using the APQ8064 platform alongside an MDM9x15 LTE baseband and an Adreno 320 GPU, a combination that is expected to blow our minds and break benchmark records.

vu

Last week, Android Authority learned that Verizon Wireless was getting the LG Optimus Vu at the end of this month. Today we’ve learned that the LG Optimus Vu is actually going to arrive under the name “LG Intuition” and will cost $549.99 for full-retail pricing or just $199.99 with a two-year contract.
