    LG just confirmed a couple of rumors which have been floating around lately. First, they confirmed they will be dropping the Optimus name in their flagship phones and will simply adopt the G Series moniker going forward. This means the next generation after the LG Optimus G, will be the LG G2 instead of the Optimus G2. The second thing they confirmed is that their next flagship device, which just happens to be the LG G2 will indeed be coming with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 processor powering it. The phone could be officially announced in July, but more than likely it will wait until August/September. Here's a recap of what we know about the device so far,
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU (now confirmed)
    • 2GB of RAM
    • 5” 1080p Full HD display
    • 13 megapixel camera
    There are a couple of other rumors about the device now. One is that it will come with an unspecified new feature which LG claims is “something different and something unique.“ The other is that the device will be so thin the control buttons will need to be placed on the back instead of the sides. Here's a press release detailing their collaboration with Qualcomm,
