LG has announced a new contest called To Me, You Are Perfect that will build the public’s excitement for a new device that it will unveil on August 7. Based on several obvious clues, that device is the company’s new flagship Android smartphone, the Optimus G2.
Now, LG is using that same line in a contest to promote the upcoming smartphone. Anyone can enter the To Me, You Are Perfect contest uploading a message on a photo or in a video to a loved one on any of the following websites: www.LGMobile.com (LG Mobile’s Microsite), www.facebook.com/LGMobile (LG’s Facebook page), and www.youtube.com/LGMobile (LG’s Youtube channel). The participant with the most likes and views will be declared the winner.
LG’s campaign has a grand prize worth $50,000, possibly including the Optimus G2. 40 randomly-chosen contest participants will also receive LG G Series smartphones (again, likely the Optimus G2 itself), while 500 others will get LG Pocket Photo printers.
Several video clips will also be chosen and shown on the above-mentioned LG websites, and interestingly, even on outdoor billboards located in Times Square in New York City and Piccadilly Circus in London.
The contest will presumably run from July 15, the date of LG’s announcement, and end on August 6, the day before the grand announcement.
LG says that it chose such a promotional campaign to thank its consumers, as well as to let such consumers know how significant they are in the design process for new devices.
The upcoming LG Optimus G2 is expected to be a monster of a device, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a 5.2-inch edge-to-edge Full HD display, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean in tow. It also has a unique design, with its volume or zoom controls located right below the rear-facing camera. The LG Optimus G2 will likely compete against the Sony Xperia Z, HTC One, and the Samsung Galaxy S4.
