LG holding media event August 7, ready for Optimus G2?


LG sent us a brief message last night, telling us that the “LG Mobile Communications Company will be hosting an international media event on August 7 in New York City. More information will follow in the coming weeks, but we wanted you to be aware so you could plan your schedules accordingly.”

What’s the event about?  We’d be willing to bet money that this event will be announcing the successor to the popular LG Optimus G.  Yesterday morning, LG and Qualcomm were teasing us about the next G series device running the beastly Snapdragon 800 processor.  And do you remember those leaked screen shots from a while back of that beautiful LG device with the tiny bezels and possibly a lack of capacitive navigation buttons?  I think LG has come a long way since I first picked up my first Android device, the LG T-Mobile G2x.  I hated that device.  LG has really stepped it up with their latest releases, and it seems like they have some big plans for their next flagship.

So, it’s obviously not confirmed that LG will be announcing the next G series device on August 7, but things seem to be pointing that direction.  Do you think LG will be able to release something that can compete with the Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One?  If this next G series device is as good as it sounds, is it your next device?  It’s looking like we’ll be getting all the facts August 7, but I hope we keep getting teased with details because whatever LG is announcing, it seems legit.  Stay tuned!
