I can’t say that it’s very surprising that LG has officially announced the LG Optimus G after numerous leaks and hints at the device. Later on, we heard a few more hints about the Qualcomm processor and then a tease from LG to hopefully generate a lot more interest and excitement in the device. Of course, after being able to see the device in its full form after an official leak from AndroidMX, it’s not surprise that LG would go ahead and officially announce that the device was coming. This “superphone” has features that you usually would expect in a high end device like this. It has a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 quad core processor, 2GB’s of RAM, a beautiful 13 mega pixel camera, a 1.3 mega pixel front facing camera, a 2,100mAh battery along with a 4.7 inch True HD IPS 1280 x 768 resolution display. Not only that, but the device is going to be shipping with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with high possibilities of an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
This LTE powered handset will be launching in Korea next month, which will be followed by a global launch by the end of 2012. All that we have left to see is how many consumers will be willing to purchase this phone after seeing LG’s terrible track record with the LG brand. Obviously it’s going to be the best phone of 2012 with the hardware that’s packed in it, so that may encourage consumers to purchase it. Still, it’s quite possible that LG could redeem their history with this device.
“Working closely with our affiliate companies allowed us a degree of control that very few smartphone makers have with their component partners,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Our next smartphone will be a game changer for us because we were able to incorporated all the best-of-best technologies from our sister companies with one single objective in mind -– to give customers the best user experience that we were collectively capable of.”
Is anyone looking forward to getting the LG Optimus G when it released later this year? It looks pretty nice, but again, LG’s track record is pretty questionable and with my experience with their device(s), I most likely won’t be getting the LG Optimus G. That said, has anyone actually had a good LG phone before? Let us know in the comments below!
Hopefully everything will end up working out with the device.
