Rumors are rife of Optimus G2, the successor of Optimus G for quite sometime. The handset was expected to be outed at CES 2013 or MWC 2013, but there was no scene from the South Korean tech giant regarding the same.
Now, according to recent benchmark results, the rumored LG Optimus G2 may use the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, which could make it one of the fastest smartphones ever.
According to a leaked GLBenchmark report, a LG handset with the model number D801 has been spotted on the benchmark tests. The mysterious smartphone seems to have the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor accompanied with Adreno 330 GPU.
The report claims that Optimus G2 would feature a 5-inch full HD 1794 x 1080 pixel display, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 13MP camera and a 3,000mAh battery and run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS. On top of all that, the processor inside could be an ultra-powerful 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm CPU with the likes of the Snapdragon 600 chip found in HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4.
From the leaked specs, it is clear that Optimus G2 will be a top-shelf model from the Korean manufacturer with a 5.5 inch screen and judging from the benchmark results, it seems that this could be a real powerhouse.
The model is expected to be released this fall after an introduction this September at the IFA show in Berlin. While earlier indications were that the phone would have the Odin octo-core processor, the GLBenchmark listing shows that the Qualcomm chip will be employed. When it does arrive in smartphones, the Snapdragon 800 will likely be the fastest smartphone processor on the market and has features such as always-on voice recognition and the ability to charge smartphone batteries faster.
