LG has announced that its flagship Optimus G will launch in the United States in November. The quad-core, Android-powered smartphone was first announced back in August, and it’s making its debut in Korea next week.
In addition to a next-generation Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, which is said to be around 40% faster than previous Snapdragon chips, the Optimus G boasts 4G LTE connectivity, a 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 display, 2GB of RAM, and a 2,200 mAh battery that promises to be around 60% more efficient than other batteries of the same size. There’s also a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.4-megapixel front-facing camera.
LG appears to be very proud of the Optimus G, and it’s pretty easy to see why. Not only is it the company’s first handset to marry a quad-core processor with LTE connectivity, but it’s also the first of its handsets to use several of LG’s own technologies. The display, for example, was developed by LG, and it promises to be clearer than AMOLED displays, while consuming less power.
And as for the rear-facing camera, well, LG promises that it’s the “world’s best” smartphone camera, and the company has even produced a video that explains why it’s so terrific.
It’s clear the Optimus G will be hoping to do battle with other high-end Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy S III, then. So if you’re hoping to snap up a quad-core “superphone” soon, it might be worth giving the Optimus G a look.
