LG announces the Optimus G


LG has launched another phone on their South Korean website although this time it appears to be sans IR port. The Optimus G will feature a Qualcomm APQ8064 Quad-Core S4 Pro CPU which has integrated LTE which is a great sign for data consumers with an eye on conserving battery life, the screen appears to have ‘fully integrated touch’ according to the website which could be an iteration on the rumoured super thin screen that the iPhone 5 is said to be including.
Specifications :

  • Display: 4.7-inch True HD IPS + (1280 * 768) Display
  • 1.5GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm APQ8064 CPU
  • 13MP Rear Camera with 1.3MP Front Facing Camera
  • 2GB DDR2 RAM
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with LG UX
  • Battery capacity: 2,100 mAh
  • Size: 131.9×68.9×8.45mm @ 145grams

I must admit, my first thought on looking at the picture supplied was of an iPhone, but if LG think they can win that battle then I guess that’s their game to play. The inclusion of the Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU is exciting although given the issues Qualcomm has had keeping up supply of the Dual-Core S4 I wonder if this may change prior to launch, although with LTE ramping up in Australia I’d love to see more phones using this chip. Well, what do you think?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

It looks like apple’s lawyers are in the works. Rectangle shape and rounded corner, integrated display.

Another billion dollar is in the horizon.

Defend innovation, not litigation.

Maybe LG will surprise everyone and have a brand new easy to live with UI 😀

If the next Samsung Nexus device doesn’t come with an A15 processor I’m soo getting one of these.

Looks nice. That’s a quad core krait right? If only LG didn’t have that terrible UI.

You know what’s hilarious.. all the pictures of the device are with the screen off!! Lol even LG know it’s rubbish!! Why don’t they just stay with STOCK!!

I think it’s to emphasize that the panel blends with the bezel when off.

I think it’s a lock the chip will be in the next nexus.. especially if the rumors hold true of multiple manufactures…

This hardware & internals seem perfect. Would love to see a nexus version / AU compatible LTE version.
