Rumour : LG 5.5 inch 1080p Flagship Optimus G2 To Be Revealed At CES
At CES 2012 LG was incredibly quiet. They only showcased devices that were already announced and let the world wait until Mobile World Congress for their big flagship unveilings. LG is already rumoured to be coming out with a follow-up to the Optimus G called the Optimus G2, which will be revealed at CES 2013.
This power house Android reportedly has a screen size between 5 to 5.5-inches with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (440 ppi), LTE-enabled and has a 2 GHz quad-core processor. Previous overseas report indicated that LG will announce this within 6 months, but thanks to DigiTimes they state that,

A DigiTimes piece says less than 5% of the phones shipped in 2012 had a screen that measured 5 or more inches diagonal. That number is expected to hit between 10% and 15% in 2013, which should come out to around 100 million units.
LG may simply showcase the device at CES, and then release it many months later, although that kind of approach has never been a good idea.
