Nexus devices on sale: Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P  |  The Ausdroid Shop has all your Nexus accessories here.

When we first got word that the LG Optimus G was coming to Australia we were advised that the phone would be delivered to different markets with one of two different camera sensors either 8MP or 13MP depending on the market. We were advised early on that Australia would be getting the 8MP version but today I was advised by LG that the Optimus G will be arriving in Australia with a 13MP camera after all. Spec wise that is the only change we’ve been advised of so the specs on the Optimus G are now :

  • 4.7″ 1280×768 True HD IPS display with Zerogap Touch (in-cell touch) technology
  • 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 CPU with Adreno 320 GPU
  • 32GB of internal storage (no microSD slot)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 8MP Rear Camera & 1.3MP front facing camera
  • 2G / 3G / LTE
  • Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, USB 2.0 HS, A-GPS, MHL and DLNA, NFC
  • 131.9 x 68.9 x 8.45mm, 145g
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with LG UX
  • 2,100mAh Battery
    • Talk time: 15 hours
    • Standby: 335 hours

Given that the Nexus 4 is based very much on the Optimus G specifications but without LTE, a number of people who were disappointed with the Nexus 4 coming only in HSPA+ are seriously considering the Optimus G instead. LG has advised previously that the phone will launch here in Australia in early 2013 so we have only a little while longer to wait. Who is going for the Optimus G purely based on the inclusion of LTE or does the 13MP camera also entice you?
