LG Nexus 4 managed to win hearts and souls of many, as demand of the handset is still high. The 4.7-inch 720p HD handset wasn't as classy as Samsung's Galaxy S3, but being part of Nexus lineup made LG an overnight star. Last year, LG not only announced Nexus 4, but also unleashed the Optimus G. The latter handset was praised for its design, and camera. And this very year, the South Korean giant has come up with a phablet known by the name of LG Optimus G Pro. Here Pro stands for bigger display to tackle Samsung's Galaxy Note 2. Now the alleged images of a mysterious LG handset have appeared on the internet- thanks to Twitter darling evleaks.
Well, specifications of the LG made handset are still missing, but the alleged images do say a lot. The design has been inspired from Nexus 4; a large display (4.8-5-inch) with no home button on the front. The LG logo on the front, and the plastic chassis hints at either the handset is a part of new series going to launch by LG at the upcoming IFA tech show. Or the device is touted to be a sequel to LG Optimus G. Back in April, Engadget reported that LG's Won Kim, Head of Mobile Marketing, has accepted that LG is indeed working on a sequel to Optimus G. The report further revealed that the specifications of Optimus G2 would be better than its predecessor with a 5-inch Full HD display to take front stage.
Last month, LG India communicated that they are ready to bring the Optimus G Pro handset in the Indian market. Price is still to be announced, and the retail availability is pegged for June release. While the LG Optimus G, is being priced at par with Samsung's Galaxy S3. The tech vendor also launched two budget centric Android handsets recently - LG Optimus L7 II, and the LG Optimus L3 II.
