LG Teases August 7 Mobile Event in New Video, G2 All But Confirmed

Screen Shot 2013-07-07 at 7.55.03 PM

LG already has a date saved with us for August 7 to unveil something in NYC that is mobile related. At the time that we were asked to mark it on our calendars, we tossed out the idea that this could be their press event to announce the new LG G2, which has leaked a couple of times over the last few months. Sure enough, they posted a teaser video for the event last night that all but confirms the G2.ย 

Throughout the 1:39 clip, the quote “To me, you are perfect. From G…” strung about on billboards, walls, bus stops, and in book stores. But it becomes painfully obvious when the invite drops a “Greatย 2 Have You!” line at the end. And yes, the bold on the G and 2 are on purpose.

The ย G2 is expected to have a mega-high-resolution display with little bezel and run on a Snapdragon 800 processor. The device may also be so thin that LG had to place the volume rocker on the back, something that was seen in a leaked promo video. Other than that, the phone is somewhat of a mystery. If it’s anything like last year’s Optimus G Pro, it should push the limits of mobile technology. If you haven’t yet found a place again for LG in your hearts, now might be the time to start letting them back in.

    Crap. I was waiting for the HTC One to replace my GNex but now I don’t know what to do.

  • raddacle

    Umm why do I feel like we’ve never discussed on how many different points LG copies Samsung?

  • deadpenguins

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^ Alright, these are getting ridiculous. vvvvvvvvvv

    I simply got paid $6784 operating off my laptop computer this month. And if you’re thinking that that is cool, my unmarried friend has twin toddlers and revamped $9k her 1st month. It feels therefore sensible creating abundant|such a lot|most} cash once others have to be compelled to work for thus much less. this is often what I do, http://www.Pro67.com

    “All but confirmed” – my favorite Android rumor phrase. ๐Ÿ˜›

  • a) youth.in.asia

    Volume rocker on the back? GAME CHANGER!

  • ahhh yes

    Why is there no news on the Nexus 5? anyone think this could be the base of the n5?

    • ddevito

      maybe because it will never exist? just sayin :p

    • Because we have no idea if LG is making the next Nexus phone. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • nvitone23

        You think the next Nexus will have the Snapdragon 800 in it?

        • ahhh yes

          i would hope so! and hopefully 32gb / 64gb and 1080p.

          • nvitone23

            yea but nexus devices don’t always have the top of the line specs…I really want that 800

        • Ryan

          I doubt it just for the price. The 800 is so new and has not come down in price. I bet it has the 600 which is still a great chipset. yes 800 would be better but might jump the price of the Nexus an extra $100 or more.

          • nvitone23

            thats exactly what I was thinking

      • michael arazan

        Back in February LG said they were in “negotiations” for another nexus phone, that was the only official news. No news has come out saying they will or not be doing it. I would like Google to through Motorola a bone here
