LG Optimus G Officially Announced, Packs Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2GB Of RAM And HD Display

LG unveiled its new flagship device for the company’s smartphone line-up, the Optimus G model. The terminal is 8.45 mm thick and boasts a 4.7-inch TrueHD IPS Plus touch panel that displays a resolution of 1,280 x 768 pixels.

The display has a pixel density of 330 ppi and incorporates Zerogap Touch technology, which basically sticks the touch sensors to the glass for improved image quality and wider view angles. Under the hood of LG Optimus G there’s a Qualcomm Fusion 3 chipset, made of a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU (APQ8064) at 1.5 GHz and the Adreno 320 GPU with four cores. The technical specifications list is completed by 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage.

The LG Optimus G also sports a 13 megapixel camera, with autofocus and LED flash. The camera unit pairs the BSI (Back Side Illumination) sensor with an optical kit that provides f/2.4 aperture, resulting in better performance in low light conditions. Besides the primary camera with full HD video recording support, the front panel accommodates a 1.3 megapixel sensor for video calls.

If the internal storage is not enough for your 1080p video collection, you can expand it using a microSD card which allows you to add up to 32 GB of storage space. The LG Optimus G specs list also include Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi N, NFC and MHL, as well as a A-GPS sensor for navigation.

Even though it is based on a bold hardware configuration, Optimus G is powered by a battery of only 2,100 mAh. The LG engineers made this choice to allow them to use a very thin case, limiting the total weight of the terminal to a comfortable 145 grams. Even though it’s not much of a consolation, LG mentions that the Li-polymer undetectable battery supports more than 800 charging cycles, enough to withstand frequent recharges, while at home or at work.

The Optimus G leaves the factory gates with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sadnwich on board.

Starting next week LG Optimus G will be available for purchase in the stores in South Korea with a price of $895 (for the unlocked version). Now all we have to do is wait and see when it will arrive in US and Europe, two important markets for the South Korea-based phone maker.
