LG sent out invitations to members of the press for “an international media event” taking place in New York on August 7. The occasion is almost definitely the launch of the successor to the Optimus G.
Their higher end devices, like the upcoming G2, will not have the moniker. So, linearly speaking, we’ll transition from the Optimus G to the G2. No high-end Optimus to be seen.
With the Optimus G Pro official for close to two months now, you’d think LG would be keen on delivering tech users the best technology as quickly as possible
The LG Optimus G Pro is back in the fight for supremacy after falling off the radar for a while. And it has at least two aces up its sleeve: the 5.5-inch Full HD screen and the humongous 3,150 mAh battery.
If you weren’t confused enough with LG’s much too big new line-up of smartphones and the pretty hectic branding that came with it, there’s a new gadget name you should write down – the Optimus LTE 3.
This is just too confusing. LG is readying the Optimus G Pro (two versions of it, in fact), the G2 is also said to be in the works, while Europeans are only now getting the first-gen Optimus G?
We knew better than to get super-excited when LG vaguely teased the new F-Series, and yesterday’s F5 and F7 leaks seemed to confirm our fears.
LG has certainly been vague in teasing the company’s MWC 2013 presence, but that hasn’t stopped the pieces of the puzzle from falling into place via unofficial leaks.
Smartphone pricing is generally higher directly with the carriers so the news of a discounted handset with Amazon Wireless is not really a surprise. Nontheless, being able to get the LG Optimus G (for Sprint or AT&T) for $99.99 is still a nice deal and one worthy of mentioning.
Some good news for those in Canada, the LG Optimus G has officially launched today, November 13. The Android 4.0 ICS-running handset will be available with several carriers and with varying price points.
