LG recently unveiled the Optimus G, its new flagship Android phone. The device, which was first announced a month ago, is believed to be on its way to the United States through AT&T and Sprint, which will sell the device as the LG Eclipse 4G LTE. Meanwhile, in Korea, the phone will start hitting market shelves next week. Other markets are scheduled to release the phone this October.
The Androidandme blog, citing two of its trusted sources, reports that LG is expected to make this year’s Nexus smartphone. Earlier, the same blog published an article explaining the reasons why this is likely.
Among the reasons they cited is its Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor with a Quad-Core Krait CPU that runs alongside Adreno 320 GPU. The CPU is said to offer a 40 percent improvement in performance, a 300 percent enhancement in graphics, as well as better efficiency in terms of power. Benchmark tests also support the idea that the Snapsdragon S4 Pro is the speediest one available.
The smartphone’s display is likewise pretty impressive. The LG Optimus G boasts of a 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPSPlus with a resolution of1280 x 768 pixels and an aspect ratio of 15:9. This display is also equipped with LG Innotek G2 Touch Hybrid Display technology, which is said to be able to provide better clarity and sharpness even outdoors, and consumers up to 60 percent less power when compared to an AMOLED display.
The device is also powered by a 2,100 mAh battery that has a lifespan of 800 cycles, which is higher than the 500 cycle lifespan on many other handset batteries.
Furthermore, its main camera, which is packed with a 13-megapixel sensor, promises to be able to capture high-quality images.
This, however, is still a rumor, with nothing but speculation to back it up as of the moment. In general, rumors about an upcoming Nexus smartphone have been quite scarce lately, leaving consumers with hardly any clue as to which phone maker will be assigned with the task.
