With a re-announcement of the LG Optimus G occurring earlier today, we now have a few more pieces of information regarding LG’s upcoming flagship device. To begin, the Optimus G will launch in Korea starting next week at the non-subsidized price of $894. In addition, Japanese consumers will get their chance at the Optimus G starting next month.
According to a report surfacing today, LG confirms that the United States will receive its own LG Optimus G sometime in November — right before the critical Holiday season. Since it is an LTE device, chances are T-Mobile will not launch a variant, but hopefully the remaining three major carriers will each launch a version.
As a quick recap of its specs, the Optimus G offers a 4.7 inch touch screen display with 1280 x 768 resolution, Android 4.0, Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core 1.5GHz processor, LTE, 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear facing camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, 21o0 mAh battery, and 32GB of onboard memory.
There is a very good chance we will see the American introduction of the Optimus G tomorrow during LG and Qualcomm’s event.
LG’s latest Optimus G smartphone will surely make a splash around the world, but can it compete with the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III?
