LG Optimus G2 for the UK was confirmed to arrive in Q3 by the South Korean conglomerate’s Won Kim, Head of Mobile Communication for Europe. Kim described the smartphone to be the firm’s answer to Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One. LG Optimus series has fallen out of favour in the UK market, which has led to the development of G2.

Talking to Trusted Reviews, Kim said that Optimus G2 was developed after studying the success trend of LG mobiles in the UK and promised that the device would be something different and unique. LG’s recent successful venture was Google Nexus 4 and the firm would like to repeat the trend with Optimus G2.

The name of the smartphone has also not been finalised, though it is likely that the device would be called G2. An official spokesperson for the company said, “We have a naming strategy, we haven’t made a final decision on naming.” Won Kim also confirmed the unnamed device.

The specs of the upcoming smartphone have been closely guarded by the firm as Kim stated, “We don’t want to hide everything but similarly we don’t want to promote everything about the G2 in advance. To some extent we have to tease the features and specifications through channels, it is somewhat premature for me to talk about the G2 in terms of specifications.”

Talking to TechRadar, Kim stated that the UK is the most tricky phone market in the world with Samsung and Apple leading the race to be number one. He said that the South Korean firm was weak in the UK market and would be looking to change things with the launch of Optimus G2. What do you think about G2?
