D-Day is approaching fast for LG, who will probably look to introduce the company’s next flagship, the G2, on August 7 in New York. I know, you must be a little confused by LG’s haste to already rehash the Optimus G Pro, only the G2 should be much more than a rehash.
According to recent reports and an AnTuTu benchmark that emerged just the other day, the G2 will pack a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Said CPU is, as you probably know already, the cream of the crop when it comes to Android devices and, through some software optimizations of some kind, it might perform on the G2 better than on Samsung’s Galaxy S4 LTE-A.
Exciting stuff, but you haven’t heard the most exciting part about G2’s spec sheet yet – 3 GB of RAM. That’s right, the feature that most of us didn’t dare to hope for six months ago could become reality in 30 days.
Of course, since no one at LG actually confirmed this yet, the information has to be taken with your usual pinch of salt. On the other hand, the source of the intel is respected Korean publication The Korea Economic Daily, so my guess is this is all more than void speculation.
The Asian newspaper claims to have heard from reliable insiders about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 also, which will itself pack 3 gigs of RAM. Again, it all sounds almost too good to be true, but more often than not these sorts of rumors, verified from trustworthy sources, become reality in no time.
Now, what would 3 GB of RAM mean for everyday smartphone users? And why would mobile devices need that whopping memory in the first place? Simple, true, smooth multitasking is the answer to the former and LTE-Advanced to the latter.
The new standard in terms of mobile speeds, supported for now only by a special Korean version of the GS4, will most definitely be found inside both the G2 and Note 3, which is yet another piece of great news. Yeah, like anyone’s complaining.
