Won Kim, Head of Mobile Communication for Europe at LG told Trusted Reviews: "the LG Optimus G2 is coming in Q3, yes."
Although the firm has announced the upcoming device, it hasn't given any details away such as specifications. "We don’t want to hide everything but similarly we don’t want to promote everything about the G2 in advance" added Won Kim.

He explained that LG want to tease details to some extent but that it was too early to confirm any specifications. However, he did say the "G2 is going to be something different, something unique and we have needed to be very creative."
Although Kim mentioned the G2 several times, an official spokesperson said: "We have a naming strategy, we haven’t made a final decision on naming".
In the meantime, LG is holding a 'share the genius' press event on 1 May in New York where it is expected to launch the US version of the Optimus G Pro.
