The upcoming LG G2 will feature a massive 3GB of RAM, making it the world’s first smartphone to boast of having such feature. The report comes from the Korean publication Hankyung, which also notes that the device will be heading to Korea’s SK Telecom. It is expected, nonetheless, that the international handset which LG will be releasing will have the same RAM capacity.
LG has loved releasing devices tagged as the “world’s first” in the past. It would be recalled that the same company was also the first phone maker to release a device that had 2GB of RAM, which was the Optimus LTE 2. When such phone was announced in May last year, the Galaxy S III smartphone, which is by the fellow South Korea-based company Samsung, only had 1GB of RAM.
According to rumors from the supply chain, devices with 4GB of RAM could be available starting next year, and it would come to no surprise if LG once again snags the title of having the world’s first 4GB device. Just recently, however, the company was beaten by in releasing the first LTE-Advanced device, the Galaxy S IV.
Not to be outdone, LG is believed to be preparing the LG G2 with impressive specifications. The smartphone, which is the successor to the LG Optimus G2, will purportedly have the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 800 processor, and like the Samsung Galaxy S IV, support for LTE-Advanced connectivity. It may also come with a 5-inch Full HD display, a front panel with a very thin bezel, and overall, a slim profile. As Matthew reported last month, images of the device had already been leaked by @evleaks, giving consumers a first look at the device.
Overall, with the high RAM capacity, the speedy processor, and LTE-Advanced compatibility, it looks like the LG G2 will provide an ultra-smooth and fast computing experience.
On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Note III, which is believed to be the LG G2’s direct competitor, will possibly come with a Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB of RAM, as well. However, LG’s device is expected to be released earlier than the Samsung phablet.
Rumors suggest that the LG G2 could be available in South Korea as early as the middle of this month. Meanwhile, an announcement of the device for the international market is supposedly scheduled to be held on August 7 in New York.
