Quad-core LG Optimus G confirmed
29 Aug 2012
13-megapixel 4G phone will launch in Japan first
LG is launching a 4G phone packing a quad-core Snapdragon processor.
We just reviewed LG's first quad-core phone, the Optimus 4X HD, and the company is already out with its second. In classic LG naming fashion, it's called the Optimus G, a 4.7-inch superphone with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 13-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facer for video calls.
Like the 4X HD, its screen will be a True HD IPS+ display, with 32GB of storage beefing up its media cred. It launches with Android Ice Cream Sandwich - though that's already been superseded by version 4.1 Jelly Bean, as seen in our first-ever five-star tablet, the Nexus 7 by Asus.
The LG Optimus G has only been confirmed to launch in Japan and Korea this September, but with the UK poised to get 4G internet by the end of the year, it just could land here too.
