What's coming next from LG? Optimus G2? New launch date unveiled

LG optimus G.jpgIt seems that international media events in New York are the big story at the moment in the mobile world. And here is another one. LG has announced that it will be holding a shindig on August 7th in that US city. But what will it launch?

The clever money is on the latest of its high-end Optimus G mobile range which will compete with the Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z, Apple iPhone 5 et al. The original version was announced well over a year ago so it is clearly due an upgrade.

We know that the new phone, if it is a high-end model, will almost certainly feature a state of the art Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor that was confirmed yesterday. There are also solid rumours that LG is working on a always on voice control facility, so you can shout at the mobile and its works for you. Unlike on similar systems now when you have to press a button to get the voice control to kick in.

Or maybe LG has a high-end camera phone to compete with the likes of this?

We will find out soon enough.
