Quad-core LG Optimus G2 is being tested behind closed doors

It’s been around 6 months since LG launched the Optimus G1 as an answer to Samsung’s Galaxy S3, and as we head towards the typical annual refresh, a successor has been spotted. LG is quietly testing an Optimus G2 behind closed doors.

We’ve heard many rumours and reports about the G2, although most relate to its somewhat obvious existence and not what it will entail. Now, thanks to benchmark results uploaded online, we know a little about LG’s forthcoming flagship.

First of all, there are three different versions being tested – dubbed the F340L, the F320K and the F320L – each of which appear to feature different versions of Android and different processors. For example, the F340L and F320L both run Android 4.2.2 and a powerful 2GHz processor, whereas the F320K runs Android 4.2.1 and a 1.5GHz processor.

2GHz is a speed we’ve seen only a handful of times in a mobile device, most notably the Motorola RAZR i with its Intel chip. It’s thought that the two phones showing this clock speed will use Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 800 chip, which is quad-core.

Unfortunately the benchmark results, which come from the popular AnTuTu app, only reveal processor speeds and Android versions as details to go on for now. In the rumour mill we’re told that the phone will also feature a 13MP camera – likely the same sensor used on the new Optimus G Pro – and a 5-inch Full HD display, to line the phone up with the big guns on the market right now.

We’re still unsure as to when LG will reveal the Optimus G2, but with specifications that put it in contention with the recently released Sony Xperia Z, Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, we would think the company will want to bring a rival to market as soon as possible.
