LG Optimus G now truly official. It’s the world’s first LTE smartphone with quad-core Snapdragon S4 CPU
LG has fully unveiled its newest flagship Android handset – the Optimus G. We already knew a lot of things about it, including the fact that it features a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, and LTE connectivity (being the first in the world to have them both).
Another alleged strong point of the Optimus G is its display, a 4.7 inch True HD IPS+ one with 1280 x 768 pixels. Manufactured by LG Display, this screen is thinner than current touchscreen panels, and is “sharper and crisper, with color accuracy of sRGB 100 percent to show natural and life-like images”
The new smartphone runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, using an interface enhanced with stuff like Live Zooming (works while viewing videos), Dual Screen Dual Play, and QuickMemo.
Other features: Wi-Fi, DLNA, NFC, A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, 13MP rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and a 2,100 battery with extended lifespan (to 800 charging cycles). The device measures 131.9 x 68.9 x 8.45 mm, and weighs 145 grams. Its back is covered “with a polarized glass pattern.”
The Optimus G will be available starting September (in black and white), first in South Korea, then in other markets around the world. Japan will get in October, via NTT DoCoMo.
On paper, the LG Optimus G certainly looks like one of the best handsets of 2012. But let’s just wait until it hits the shelves to see if it’s indeed what LG wants it to be.
