LG has scheduled an international media event in New York City on August 7, presumably to unveil the next device in the evolution of the Optimus G series. The South Korean manufacturer already confirmed that the successor will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 800 processor, which is a significant upgrade over the Snapdragon S4 Pro in the original Optimus G and the Snapdragon 600 in the followup “Pro” model. LG claims the next-generation OG will be considered the “industry’s best smartphone by which all other devices will be measured.” No other details were revealed with the press invite, but like always, we’ll keep you posted on relevant rumors, leaks and official announcements.
