LG Confirms New Optimus Model Coming to the UK in Q3


When it comes to choosing a smartphone and you’re not sure which model or, even make you’re after then the vast choice you have could be overwhelming. Yes we have the top named brands like Samsung, HTC, Sony and of course Apple.
But now after a self-imposed exile from the UK shores, LG have confirmed that it is coming back with the release of the next Optimus model will be coming in Q3.

It will of course go head-to-head with the likes of the impending Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One and the next-gen iPhone. With LG yet to confirm its rumoured moniker – despite referring to its new smartphone as the G2 on more than one occasion – it is possible the phone will arrive in the UK under a completely different name.

LG’s head of Mobile Communication for Europe, Won Kim, has confirmed its new flagship is going to be

“something different and something unique, to some extent we have to tease the features and specifications through channels but it is somewhat premature in terms of talking about the G2 in terms of specifications.”

Unlike the recent influx of super-sized smartphones-come-tablets it is thought LG’s flagship will stick closer to the 5in mark as opposed to throwing another device into the super-sized phablet category.

Still got your eyes on the bigger-screened Optimus Pro? When quizzed on whether we’ll see the Optimus G Pro in the UK Mr Kim declared “anything is possible.”

So there you have it – LG is planning to attack the smartphone market later this year and apparently “we will want to buy it.” We wait and see.
