LG have today sent out various press invitations to an event in New York City on August 7th, teasing the possible launch of the Optimus G2, a handset that has been rumored for some time.

Rumors suggest the smartphone will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor but not much else.

However through LG’s obvious advertising, its more or less confirmed that they will indeed unveil the handset at this event, with promotional material plastered with the message “Great 2 Have You!”, and the G and 2 being in bold text.

However we won’t know for sure until August 7th, in the meantime hit play on the video below for a look at the teaser.
