In a slightly peculiar move, LG has confirmed via an official announcement that its next flagship will indeed be the G2, but declined to give any details about it, instead opting to wait until a later date to debut the device.
While it did confirm the G2 name — sans the “Optimus” — the primary purpose of the announcement was to explain LG’s naming conventions for its devices here on out. All “G” monikers, it said, will henceforth be reserved only for its flagship, “premium” devices. Similarly, all devices that sport a 4:3 display aspect ratio will now simply be called “Vu” in the future.
Since the announcement gave us nothing other than a name in terms of information about the impending flagship, we still only have rumors to go on in terms of specs. As it stands now, the G2 is expected to have a 5.2-inch full HD display, 2 GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor. It’s expected to get its full, official reveal during LG’s press event on August 7.
