LG Optimus G Now Official – Quad-core S4 Pro Krait Processor And 4.7″ Display

There’s an Optimus, and there’s the Optimus G. LG has taken the sheets off its latest flagship, the Optimus G, featuring the Snapdragon S4 Pro Krait processor, which could propel the device on the top of Android superphones’ list.

The device comes with LTE support as well, so it won’t be fast just software-wise, but the downloads will be blazing fast as well. Erm, okay, I don’t want to sound like a salesperson, but I really am impressed with what LG’s done here. They’ve been, on many occasions, the first ones to come out with new technology, and they’re the first ones to launch a Quad-core Krait running smartphone with LTE support. That’s mouthful, I know, but it’s not difficult.

The LG Optimus G does look a lot like a slab, but then, it’s also minimal, and probably the company wanted to drive your attention to the beautiful display. But let’s take a quick look at the specs –

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with LG’s custom UI on top
  • 4.7″ True HD IPS Plus display, 1280×768 pixels
  • 1.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro Krait processor, Adreno 320 GPU
  • 13 MP / 8 MP (depending on the market) main camera, LED flash, 1080p video recording; front facing 1.3 MP camera
  • 2 GB RAM, 32 GB internal memory, expandable with a microSD card
  • NFC, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Hotspot, DLNA, Direct, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS
  • 2100 mAh battery
  • Price – 1 Million Korean Won, 900 USD

The device seems like a beast on paper, and AnandTech’s Performance preview does suggest it is one. Then again, it’s costly as well, and it’ll be interesting to see when the Optimus G ventures out to other markets.
