5″ 1080p Successor to LG’s Optimus G Already Scheduled For May 2013?

Earlier this month, a mysterious LG device toting a 5″ 1080p display was benchmarked, with a model number of LG-F240K. Today, reports out of Korea show that a device called the Optimus G2, a successor to the Optimus G that just launched here in the U.S., could be ready for the market as early as May of 2013. Could this be that same mystery phone? On top of the 5″ 1080p display, it is also reported that the device will sport a 2GHz Qualcomm chipset which would be a major turn on for any potential buyers. 

The month of May might be some time away, but if the device is indeed coming, then we’ll be sure to see plenty of more info leaked in the coming months. In fact, LG may shoot for sooner rather than later, given HTC has already launched their 1080p offering, as well as rumors of Samsung to do the same here very soon at this year’s CES.

LG Optimus G2 possibly interesting you already?

    5″ is to big for a phone, 4.7″ is the best

  • No glass back + Removable Storage & Battery = Winner

    Awesome! Its actually remarkable post, I have got much clear idea concerning from this article. thank you.

    Still no, LG.

  • KSChris

    Is that an LG-specific clock/date widget? If so, is there anything similar in the Play Store? It’s sweet as hell!

    Everything LG does is in reaction to Samsung. They are planning to head off the GS4. I hope they have great plans.

    This thing is specd’ to death and I personally would buy it, but I think we have reached a point that these phones will need to bring more than top notch specs to do well. LG what else are you bringing to the table with this phone that will appeal to the non-tech phone buyer?

    Meh. I’m not ready for a 5″ inch device. And after Kellex’s write up on the glass backings, I’m totally turned off from LG. They had a golden opportunity with the Nexus4 and they blew it.

  • Can’t wait until next summer when specs are all caught up and finally there is a huge push on improving software. HTC will have to sell a good “all-around” phone not selling one superior feature.

    this sounds about right. about 6 months away, most high end phone, if not all, will/should have a 1080p screen. Heres to Motorola doing it right and sticking a sweet battery in one that’s 4.7″ with minimal bezel. Oh, and expandable, or AT LEAST 32gb internal memory.

      correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t the RAZR HD and the MAXX HD have a 720p screen? It shoots in 1080p video with its 8mp camera.

    • Brent Cooper

      I hope! Motorola 1080p screen with a huge battery and 4.2 with at least 32gb memory. That’d be awesome!

      I wouldn’t call the Razr HD “doing it right”. It came out way later than it should have and its screen and camera aren’t that great for a high end phone.

      • Charlie

        So the screen on the Galaxy Nexus and GS3 aren’t that great for high end phones? Because they all 3 use the same pentile panel. Only difference is one is 4.65, one is 4.7 and one is 4.8. Now yes, the Razr HD isn’t “cutting edge” but it’s still a high-end phone that is better than any smartphone out there with the arguable exception of a half dozen. (There are A LOT of Android phones out there)

          I see what you did there…

        • Paul

          I’ve been in store and compared screens. The colors, brightness and overall quality just isn’t as good on the HD, and many reviews online have stated the same thing. The only thing it has over any phone it’s priced to compete with is battery life, and most people are fine with the S3/DNA batteries.

      Dam, what’s next? Putting the a7 Dell processor in a phone for 3gh of power and 4 gb ram, and the case for the phone will serve a dual purpose liquid cooling system

    Not if it has a glass back again…..
