Apple iPhone 6 May Come in Hot Waters: LG Optimus G2 to Go Razor Blade Thin?

Looking forward to some of the new devices expected to roll out soon, let’s examine the specifications of the LG Optimus G2, comparing it to see whether it will surpass the Apple iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S5. Considering the rumors and speculations, read on for a general idea of what the devices might look like.

Anticipated to be launched in October, the LG Optimus G2 could run Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie in beta form. With a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, the LG G2 might hold a 5.2-inch Full HD display with either 2 or 3GB of RAM. This smartphone might come out with internal storage options of 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. What makes the device surpass other is the slimmest HD panel that it holds.

For the iPhone 6, many reports indicate that the device might roll out with exciting upgrades in 2014. However, rumors hint at the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner in the device, packed with a thin and strong glass. Since the device is expected next year, Apple might run iOS 8 by that time.

Moving on to the Samsung Galaxy S5, the phone’s also slated for next year launch. Some reports indicate that we might see a carbon fiber Galaxy S5 instead of a plastic device. This smartphone might be waterproof and could include liquid cooling, fingerprint detection, dual SIM cards and dual SD slots.

However, all three are expected to be tough competitors for each other.
