The successor to the LG Optimus G — the one with the Snapdragon 800 CPU — is likely to arrive on August 7. How do we know? Simple. LG sent us an email advising we keep that date open on our calendars as they are “hosting an international media event on August 7 in New York City.” Considering we’re an Android-related site, it doesn’t take much to figure out that we’re gonna get.

Should we see the so-called Optimus G2 show up on August 7, we could be in for a real treat. Rumored specifications thus far suggest 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 1920x1080p HD display, and rear 13-megapixel camera. This is all in addition to the killer processor. Other details tossed around include a buttonless design with an ultra-thin bezel.

If history is an indicator, we might hope to see multiple carriers offering support for the new smartphone. Sprint, for its part, looks to be lined up already.
