LG is omitting Optimus name for its next flagship device. G2 will be the official successor name of LG Optimus G.
Previous hints about the name of LG's new G flagship device already points towards "G2". LG has announced officially today that G2 will be the name of 'the company’s new “G” premium brand'. The invites of the company's August 7 product event states “Great 2 Have You”. And we have already given you hints that it might be LG Optimus G2 to come as successor of Optimus G. But it actually is only G2. The company omits Optimus from its next G series flagship.
LG Electronics Mobile Communications President, Dr. Jong-seok Park, said “Our vision is to make LG’s newest G devices synonymous with excellence, raising the bar even further for the ultimate in user experience. The new G2 will build upon the excellent reputation established by previous G Series products.”
The reported specs of the G2 smartphone so far includes 5.2-inch display screen with 1080p resolution, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 13MP camera and 2GB RAM.
Another name change will also come. As LG CEO also said that its future 4:3 displays smartphone will come under a simple “Vu:” brand name. So what will see in future will Vu: and G series. Yet LG is not leaving Optimus brand name completely. The L and F series of the company will still come under Optimus brand. A company representative told The Verge that LG "will continue to use the mark on its F and L series devices".
