LG has finally gone ahead and announce its latest addition to the Optimus family, the Optimus G. The Optimus G has made quite a lot of appearances over the last one week, sometimes showing off its quad-core Qualcomm S4 APQ8064 SoC, sometimes its 4.7-inch display with its new True HD IPS+ technology and sometimes its new battery technology.
Other specs of the Optimus G include 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera at the back and a 1.3MP snapper in the front, a 2100mAh beefy battery, the usual bunch of sensors and connectivity features including support for LTE networks and more.
LG has also managed to integrate the cover glass and the touch sensor into a single piece of glass, thus leaving no gap between the actual display and the sensor itself. This gives users a sense of touching the actual image itself, rather than any sort of glass. The handset runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, with LG’s own software gimmicks and tweaks on top of it. The press release from the company does not mention anything about the Jelly Bean update for the handset.
The Optimus G will be available in Korea from next month, followed by Japan. The handset is also expected to be available globally by the end of this year.
