LG will launch the Optimus G2 in autumn and not in next month's MWC, according to reports. Rumors say that that LG's new flagship device will have killer specs, including a 1080p Full HD display, 5 to 5.5-inch screen, the ultra-fast Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon 'Prime' quad-core processor, and, possibly, the next generation Android 5.0 Key Lime operating system. Interest in the successor to last September's Optimus G has grown after the Korean device-maker didn't unveil the device at this month's CES trade show. LG and other vendors are touting new mobile devices at next month's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but CNET says that LG would instead be unveiling a smartphone/tablet hybrid at the show.
