Well, that didn't take long. Following the leak we saw just a couple days ago, LG has released information regarding the launch of its latest superphone, the Optimus G. The finalized pictures look just about the same as the leaks we saw, which we'd assume considering how quickly the release has come. It's always good to know for sure what you're getting though. The Optimus G is looking to be quite a speedy phone -- assuming LG can step up its software game -- with specs that are top of the line:
- 4.7-inch True HD IPS 768x1280 display
- 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 2100mAh capacity battery
- 13MP rear and 1.3MP front cameras
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
LG is saying the phone is set to release in Korea, LTE in tow, next month. A full global launch is expected by the end of the year, hopefully with the appropriate LTE bands for each market as well.
