LG Optimus G receives CarbonFree certification
The Optimus G is LG’s current flagship smartphone and, despite the fact that it has yet to receive an official upgrade to Android Jelly Bean, it is a very capable handset – with its 4.7 inch True HD IPS display, its 1.5GHz quad-core processor, and its 13MP rear camera.
It turns out that the Optimus G is also eco-friendly, as it has been certified as CarbonFree by the Carbonfund.org Foundation, alongside other five (non-mobile) LG products introduced this year.
“As an environmentally responsible company, we have strengthened our commitment to bringing energy-efficient products to market. But I’ll be the first to admit that this is a marathon, not a sprint and we still have a long way to go. Fortunately, we’re off to a great start”, declared Dr. Skott Ahn, Chief Technology Officer at LG Electronics.
The Optimus G isn’t LG’s only CarbonFree-certified Android smartphone. Another handset that received this certification is the LG Mach LS860, which was launched by Sprint in November for $99 on contract, featuring a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, sliding QWERTY keyboard, Android ICS, and a 4 inch WVGA display.
Next year, LG will launch an Optimus G sequel, probably called Optimus G2. This should run Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, reportedly coming with a 1080p display of at least 5 inches, 2 GHz quad-core processor, and 2GB of RAM. The G2 will likely be CarbonFree-certified, too.
