LG Optimus G official

After a couple of teases and leaks, LG has finally made the Optimus G officially official. As expected, the Optimus G sports a 1.5GHz quad-core APQ8064 Snapdragon S4 Pro processor as well as 4G LTE support, and it also packs the 4.7-inch 1280x768 True HD IPS+ that LG talked up last weekend. LG says that the screen features "fully integrated touch technology" to aid in making the display thinner. Also included is 2GB RAM, 13-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front cameras and a 2,100mAh battery, all stuffed into a body that measures 8.45mm thick. The Optimus G will launch with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in Korea next month, with global launch to follow this year.

The Optimus G definitely touts a number of features that any bleeding edge Android fan would love, including the S4 Pro processor and high-res display, though I'm sure some folks would like to see Jelly Bean preloaded on there as well. Still, the Optimus G may be worth keeping an eye on if high-end hardware is your thing. There's no mention in today's announcement of when or if we might see the Optimus G launch here in the U.S., but earlier this year a rumor claimed that an LG-made with the model number LS970 would be hitting the Now Network in the fourth quarter of 2012, complete with a spec list that's fairly similar to the Optimus G's. As usual, we'll keep you up to date as more details arise. Stay tuned.

Eddy Edd
Eddy Edd @Mark Kornak they're also first to repeat the same mistake of rolling out yet another high end device with ICS instead of JB, explains a lot about 'timely updates'
Ori Sanilevich
Ori Sanilevich For me it comes down to camera and audio performance, lg has been notoriously bad at both. Besides, it looks like we won't be seeing this phone stateside for a while
Mark Kornak
Mark Kornak The first vendor who rolls out a high end phone with pure Android with no vendor customization and supported by Google for timely updates will win the race.
