Optimus G: LG spills more on its quad-core saviour

Optimus G: LG spills more on its quad-core saviourMartin wrote a bunch of words about the LG Optimus G yesterday, following a rather bland press release from the South Korean manufacturer.

A further press release reveals the LG Optimus G in significantly more detail, and we gots a pic, too.

Let’s not beat around the proverbial bush; it’s the specs we’re interested in here. The LG Optimus G display weighs in at 4.7in (1280 x 768), and is of the True HD IPS+ variety. PPI is an eye-melting 320.

Interestingly, when the LG Optimus G is turned off, the powered down display blends with the bezel and body of the phone. We like.

Other LG Optimus G specs include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, and Adreno 320 GPU.

We also have a generous 2GB of RAM, 13PMP rear camera, 1.3MP on the front, and a 2,100mAh battery (offering 800 cycles), all crammed into an 8mm body.

Somewhat disappointingly, the LG Optimus G will launch with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) as opposed to Jelly Bean (Android 4.1). Not a huge surprise, to be fair; we are talking LG, after all.

Lucky Goldstar boasts that the LG Optimus G is the world’s first LTE smartphone with a quad-core Snapdragon processor, though that doesn’t mean much to us in the UK. Yet.

The LG Optimus G will land in Korea next month, “followed by other markets worldwide.” Whatever that means.
