LG kills Optimus brand for G and Vu series – next phone is the G2

LG Optimus G2
LG has just updated their Korean PR site to advise that they will dropping the Optimus branding for their premium line of phones but will continue using ‘G’ as their premium brand going forward. The next phone in the G line will be known simply as the G2 and is expected to be announced at the August 7 event in New York.

The announcement confirms that the ‘G2’ will come with LTE-A providing a maximum speed of 150Mbps and will run a Snapdragon 800 CPU. The LTE-A chipset would tie-in nicely with the Telstra network here in Australia and as LG already has their Optimus G phone available via Telstra it would be nice to see this continue.

Also mentioned is an update on the Optimus Vu brand which will go forward as simply Vu:. But as we’ve never had the Vu brand launch in Australia this has no real effect on us here.

We’ve reached out to LG Australia to see if there is anything they would like to announce at this stage, but it’s more than likely that any future announcements would come after the global event set for August 7th.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
