The LG Optimus G2 has officially been named the LG G2 and information about a LG tablet, the Gpad has leaked in advance of the August 7th event that is expected to debut the flagship device that will model the Nexus 5.

Some other strange names have leaked including GPAD, G Hub and G Glass. It’s not clear what all of these are referring to, but LG seems to putting a great deal of effort into creating a trademark “G” brand. What that means for rivals like Samsung, HTC and Apple isn’t clear. Once the LG G2 is out, LG will likely begin work on the Nexus 5 which will bear very similar specs to the LG G2.

According to TechnoBuffalo: “The LG G2 is expected to come quipped with a 5.2-inch HD display, a Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel rear camera.”

It will be interesting to see what the expected price point of the device is, given that the Moto X has undercut the Nexus 4. The Nexus 5 is sure to be affordable but given the specs it will have to be more expensive than the Nexus line normally is, if the Nexus 7 2 price is anything to go off.
