For the past few days, we have been hearing about the upcoming LG Optimus G as the next big thing in the world of Android. The device has finally been announced by LG with high-end specifications that will even give Samsung Galaxy S III a little tough time. However, we are purely saying in terms of features only, as the real performance can only be evaluated once both the phones are tested again each other.
Below are some of the key features of the LG Optimus G;
- Quad-core Snapdragon S4 Qualcomm APQ8064 Pro processor,
- 4.7-inch IPS display that can render a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels,
- Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0)
- 2GB RAM,
- 13-megapixel camera,
- 2,100mAh battery.
LG has used a ”fully integrated touch technology” for the bringing the thickness of the phone to 8.55 mm. This said technology has allowed for the reduction of the gap between the screen and the contact surface below it.
South Korea will be the first country to get the shipments next month of LG Optimus G. It will be launched across all major all three major operators. This will be followed by the launch in Japan on October and November where the phone will run on Docomo’s Xi LTE network.
The specifications of the phone may remain same, however the aesthetics will undergo change catering to the demography. Japanese features include waterproof body, infrared data transfer, osaifu-keitai mobile wallet, and OneSeg and Nottv mobile television services. We don’t know if the global variant of the device will include these features or not.
The device will definitely be launched globally, but as of now we don’t know the set period for the launch. The Snapdragon S4 is compatible with LTE, so we can expect to see the US launch sooner than other regions. We will update you as more information comes in.
