LG has sent out these invites exactly a day after it announced that it will be deploying Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 processor in Optimus G successor. Therefore, it is being speculated that the company will be launching the Optimus G2 at the New York event.
The Optimus G2 smartphone has been leaked quite a few times in the past few weeks. These leaks had suggested that the LG is eyeing Q3 2013 release for its Optimus G2 smartphone.
