LG hints at Optimus G2 unveiling in August

A new video makes it pretty clear the company has something to show us in New York next month.

It's been awhile, but LG looks to have another Android hero phone about ready to show off to succeed the Optimus G (above). CNET

Summer smartphone teaser season is clearly in full swing now. We've seen the first ads for the long-awaited Moto X from the new, Google-flavored Motorola, and now LG has tipped its hat to show that it plans to reveal the successor to the Optimus G next month in New York.

There are no visuals and scant details on the phone itself in the promotional video below, which comes a few weeks after formal invitations started to be sent out for an August 7 event. Both include not-so-subtle hints that we can expect to be introduced to a G2 then. This is in line with what we've heard previously about a new LG Optimus flagship arriving in stores in the fall with a 1080p display of no less than 5 inches.

Check out the promo video below for yourself and see if you can spot any other hints amid the pretty city shots, clever editing, and plentiful photographers. Perhaps we can expect big things from the G2's camera?

What upcoming hero phone release excites you the most? The Moto X, the G2, or the next iPhone?

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
