, and

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?

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.

David Porter

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

Andrew Palozzo

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!!

Frank Benign

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

Damon Lewis

That looks like a nice phone (and an iPhone haha)

Andrew Palozzo

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.

Daniel Tyson

This…..with an IR port (I’m on an IR Port kick now, thanks to the Optimus Vu 2)

Andrew Palozzo

haha I can see how it can be useful… I really do.. But i doubt will see them added on the main-stream high end phones..


Do you still own any A/V equipment without a network connection? I don’t.

Daniel Tyson

Yes, also the A/V equipment I do own with a Network connection still has no app to control it(Sony, Panasonic and Loewe). Also as the IR standard doesn’t appear to be going away, what exactly is the hate for the IR port? Sony attempted to remove the IR port with the PS3 and that worked out briliiantly
