Today, LG Electronics is set to unveil the G2, the Korean company's flagship smartphone and successor to last year's well-received Optimus G. With so much recent media attention devoted to iPhone speculation, Samsung's seemingly never-ending S4 lineup and the Moto X from Google GOOG -0.93%, it's easy to forget that LG sits third in global smartphone market share according to IDC's latest report. And while the handset division may have lacked for runaway hits over the last few of years, it did manufacture the Google Nexus 4.
The G2 is widely expected to feature a Snapdragon 800 processor, a 5.2-inch LCD Full HD display, 2GB or RAM and a 13MP camera. The most distinctive feature of the new phone (which some think may be the basis of the next Nexus) is the absence of physical buttons on the front and sides of the device, and their placement on the rear of the device.

Samsung and Apple have always been in a tight race to smart devices supremacy and each has attracted droves of following all over the world. Each company will take a swipe at each other whenever they can and it's interesting and definitely most entertaining. The latest? Samsung thinks Note 8.0 is better than the iPad Mini because of several reasons.
According to the Korean giant, the Note 8.0 is waaaay better because it has a quad processor, is capable of multi-tasking, and has a stylish stylus! (Cheer!) It even went out of its way to create a poster for the jab aimed at the Apple A Pad Mini. It's also possible that they were talking about a different brand of device.
Kidding aside, Samsung has really topped its performance with high-profile devices and innovative technologies. It is so successful that even Google is already taking notice of its important niche in the Android market. With that said, here's hoping they'll hire a new publicist or a marketing manager who has better grammar next time.
