LG August 7 event teaser Optimus G2

After first sending out invitations to its August 7 "international media event" last month, LG has now officially begun teasing its forthcoming announcement. The company sent another invitation to its gathering to Android Central, and plastered smack dab in the middle of the image is a smartphone-shaped outline on a piece of fabric with the words "Great 2 have you!" LG has also posted a video teaser to its official LGMobileHQ YouTube account that features the phrase "To me, you are perfect. From G..." over and over before ending with the same "Great 2 have you!" as the invitation.

We'll likely have to wait until August 7 rolls around before we know exactly what LG has up its sleeve, but all of this teasing definitely gives off an "Optimus G2" vibe, no? LG has already said that it's planning to introduce the follow-up to its Optimus G flagship sometime in Q3 2013, a three-month in which August 7 just so happens to fall, and that the device will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chip. That feature alone ought to get quite a few folks interested in the device, but I wouldn't be surprised if LG's got another tease or two planned for the coming weeks. Until then, you can get a little self-esteem boost by watching the "To me, you are perfect. From G..." teaser below.
