LG Optimus G announced for AT&T and Sprint

LG has officially announced that AT&T and Sprint would offer its Optimus G flagship smartphone in the US (this while T-Mobile is going to sell the less-capable Optimus L9).

As reported several times before, the Optimus G is the world’s first LTE smartphone to feature a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (1.5GHz). According to LG, this makes it “not only one of the fastest phones on the market, but also one of the most powerful.”

The handset features a 4.7 inch True HD IPS+ display (1280 x 768 pixels), QickMemo, Live Zooming, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a powerful 2,100 mAh battery. For some unknown reason, AT&T’s Optimus G will have an 8MP rear camera, not a 13MP one (like the international version). It looks like Sprint will keep the 13MP camera though. At launch, the smartphone will run Android 4.0 ICS, but an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is scheduled for later.

Neither AT&T, nor Sprint has mentioned exactly when the Optimus G will hit the shelves. pricing details have not been unveiled, either.

The LG Optimus G will be released in Canada, too, although we don’t know which operators are going to offer it, and neither when.
