Jonesing for some more of the excitement and surprise that only a mobile event can provide? If so, I've got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that LG announced tonight that it's holding an "international media event," inviting Android Central and others to a shindig that'll take place in New York City. The bad news? The gathering is scheduled to go down on August 7, which is well over a month away.

As is usually the case with these event invitations, LG hasn't said exactly what it's got planned for the event. That doesn't mean that we can't speculate, though! One possibility is that we could see the Optimus G successor that LG was talking up last night. Not only was the company just teasing the upcoming device and its Snapdragon 800 processor, but LG has previously said that the next Optimus G device will debut in Q3 2013, a window of time that August is a part of. 

Another factor that points toward a new Optimus G is the fact that LG refers to the gathering as an "international media event." That suggests that it's got something big in store, like a new flagship product. For now we'll just have to wait and see if an Optimus G follow-up truly what LG's got up it's sleeve, so keep it locked to PhoneDog and we'll find out together.
