AT&T LG Optimus G launching on November 2 for $199.99
AT&T has unveiled that the LG Optimus G (announced by the carrier earlier this month) will be available starting November 2, becoming its first quad-core LTE smartphone.
The Optimus G will cost $199.99 with a new 2-yr contract agreement – hence having the same price as Apple’s iPhone 5 16GB. Pre-orders will start tomorrow, October 16.
Praised by the media as one of the best Android handsets this year, the Optimus G features a 4.7 inch True HD IPS+ display, LTE connectivity, 15GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable memory, a 2,100 mAh battery, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (upgradable to Jelly Bean). AT&T’s Optimus G comes with an 8MP rear camera, unlike the international version, which has a 13MP one.
Sprint will also sell the Optimus G in the US, keeping the 13MP snapper. It remains to be seen if it manages to launch it before AT&T intros its versions.
