The tale of the forthcoming LG 'Optimus G' superphone continues, only this time, it's the Korean OEM that is telling it. Following up from the recent leaked prototype of the device, LG has released a statement today confirming certain details that had previously been leaked, and new details of the gapless display it shall house. 

As it happens, the Snapdragon S4 Pro powered device will definitely have a 1280x768 True HD IPS+ display, coming in at 320ppi. Theres some science that goes along with it, but the rub of it is -- it's better than AMOLED and consumes less power.

The gapless display is an in-house technology developed with LG Innotek. Its G2 Touch Hybrid display will be bound for the device, and is "a unibody unit that eliminates the gap between the glass and the LCD panel as found in traditional touchscreens." Sounds a little like the display on the HTC One X, which is by no means a bad thing.

LG is also promising greater battery capacity, without compromising on size or weight and the powerplant has been designed by LG Chem. It promises to run 60% more efficiently than similarly sized batteries, meaning more power for longer. 

The 'Optimus G' is  certainly shaping up to be a full in-house affair, with several different arms of LG getting involved to create a device that they say will be a "game-changer" for them. They're sure trying to create some pre-launch buzz, whether it lives up to it though, only time will tell.

I'm hoping LG does a Nexus version of this phone.

codiusprime says:

If they do a Nexus version I might be interested. If not then pass, I don't trust LG to do software at all.

terrycanfly says:

agreed. LG usually makes decent hardware but there user experience is horrible

who cares about software if cyanogenmod makes a Rom for it?

survivorevil says:

Everyone should care. If lg doesnt care already about software updates buying their products will make it worse

jdroeck says:

[Beyoncé] if you don't like the software, put a rom on it! [/Beyoncé]

Lol this was hilarious!

LegacyEvoAce says:


still worthless if they don't promise (and act out the promise) to offer timely updates. Blah.

xKrNMBoYx says:

timely updates..psh

I have yet to see a company release timely updates. It's just hard to release it quickly when it has to go through the Manufacturer, Google, and Cellular Provider.

Grahaman27 says:

worthless unless a nexus. LG's software is horrible and I dont want to soley rely on developers for roms which usually are not fully working.

d2globalinc says:

Nexus or BUST! and dont tell me roms.. roms are worthless if the oem doesn't release the code for the latest version of Android.. having a rom sucks if the camera or radios dont work right or at all..
