The Sprint Optimus G in a nutshell: It's an LG Optimus G. On Sprint.
That's really about it. Sprint's iteration of LG's newest flagship is pretty much what we saw in the international version. It's got the same 4.7-inch WXGA IPS display (that's a lot of letters for "good"), same Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 pro quad-core processor. Same 13-megapixel camera that sticks out ever so slightly. Same cool "crystal reflection design" under the don't-call-it-glass backing.
And, yes, same non-removable battery, and no microSD card. (You do have 32 GB of on-board storage, with a good chunk of that already used by the operating system.)
Otherwise, no real surprises here. LG's customizations are all intact. Sprint's apps are all tucked away in SprintZone, the way we like them.
Now all we need is some availability and pricing information. (Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.)
We've got a few more pics and video after the break. Be sure to stick around and see more from CTIA MobileCON over the next couple of days.
