Whilst Sony, Samsung and HTC have been grabbing the headlines with their latest flagships, LG have been working quietly on the follow-up to their G2 phone. Now first details seem to be leaking today courtesy of a User Agent Profile on the Sprint network website.
The main headline spec is the highlighted screen resolution of 1440 x 2560 which is QHD or 2K resolution! No word on screen size but expect it to come in a bit bigger than the 5.2″ G2 if the current trend for ever increasing screen size is anything to go by. It may well end up being the same size as the other 2K screen phone, the Oppo Find 7.
Reading through the rest of the profile reveals a camera set-up of 13 megapixels on the back and a 2.1 megapixel snapper on the front, this isn’t anything to shout about, and is the same as the G2. Also the processor is listed as a quad-core MSM8974AA Snapdragon which means it is an 800, rather than one of the new 801 or 805 models. This would be disappointing if true although the phone is packing 3GB of RAM.
Final details are the phone is running Android 4.4.2 Kitkat, has 32GB internal memory and will take a 64GB microSD memory card. No details on whether the new phone will keep the power and volume buttons on the back like the G2.
