LG Optimus G2 for T-Mobile Spotted in Benchmarks Running Snapdragon 800

LG Optimus G2

Benchmarks were recently filed through GL Benchmark that point directly towards the upcoming LG Optimus G2 for T-Mobile. Previously, we discussed this device for two main reasons – first that it would be launched possibly running Android 5.0 aka Key Lime Pie, and that it would come powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor. Today, we can start the process of confirming at least one part of that, as the device has shown up as the LG D801, sporting the MSM8974 (800). 

Showing to have a max CPU frequency of just 1728, that is a bit slower (for lack of better term) than the 2.0GHz+ that was rumored a couple of months ago. A quad-core 1.7GHz chip is nothing to cry over though.

Next up, the device that received the benchmark is shown as running Android 4.2.2, not Android 5.0. If it was running KLP before launch/announcement, that would be amazing to say the least. There is no launch date set for the Optimus G2, so it could still be that LG and T-Mobile are awaiting the arrival of Android 5.0 to move forward with the device.

Either way, when the device does launch it will be one of 2013’s superphones, so you will most certainly want to keep an eye out for it.

  • LOL

    so it would clocked more than 2.0GHz or below?

  • Dave

    Isn’t the 800 series an a15 base, wouldn’t that be pure murder on the battery?

  • Bionic

    LG is really stepping up their game. If they keep this up I could seem them surplanting HTC as the third best Android OEM.

    1. Samsung (unfortunatley)
    2. Motorola
    3. HTC
    4. LG
    5. Sony ( who the hell considers a sony phone?)
    6. others

    nice! perhaps the base for the Nexus 5?

    • Trevor

      I like where your head’s at.

      • Mr. Anonymous

        That’s what she said 😉

      That is if LG not HTC is tapped as the N5 OEM. I would rather see HTC as the new Nexus OEM.

  • Tim242

    Oh, so now LG is copying HTC’s naming convention. HTC went from One X, to One. Now LG has gone from G2X to G2.

    • Tom424

      u MAD BRO?

      • Tim242


    • JakeS41

      OR – it has nothing to do with the G2X – and is just the second in line of the “Optimus G”

      • Tim242

        Don’t you think that’s a sign that their naming could stand for change?

        • JakeS41

          Yep – I agree with that. Or go off the deep end and call it the LG Optimus G2X-X 4G LTE. ha ha

          • Pedro

            That will be the Sprint version.

          • JakeS41

            I work for Sprint – that’s what made it so funny to me. ha ha My fave still has to be the Samsung Galaxy S2 Sprint Epic 4G Touch. It’s a damn shame that phone wasn’t LTE so we could have thrown it in there too. SMH

    • Dain Laguna

      i think you are reading to much into it.

    (80’s song) “everybody kWANGhyun.CHUNG tonight…”

  • Weren’t other carriers rumored to get the device, too? I know Sprint seems to have the current Optimus G at EOL. Would be interested to see an LG flagship across all major carriers. Between the iPhone, Galaxy S, Blackberry, and One series, we”l be choosing phones first, then carriers — like how it should be.

    • ANON

      all 4 carrier later this year. Sprint G not EOL.

  • Dain Laguna

    lg has been bringing it

  • Brandon S.

    I don’t even know what to say.

  • gokusimpson

    On-screen buttons too. Nice.
