Hold The Date - LG To Make Major Smartphone Announcement

A "save the date" email from LG reveals the company will stage an international mobile event on August 7.

SmartHouse understands that LG could drop the use of the name Optimus, which in Australia is very close to the name Optus -Australia's second-largest carrier.

One potential device that may get announced is the newly-confirmed LG G series smartphone, which will be among the most powerful smartphones ever launched. What is not known is whether the increased processor speed equates to a bigger drain on the battery, similar to what is happening with the new Samsung Galaxy S4.
