The folks from AT&T and LG have just officially confirmed the new flagship LG Optimus G superphone is headed to AT&T. LG unveiled the new smartphone late last month and until today we’ve only heard rumors of an AT&T launch. Today however we can now confirm the impressive quad-core smartphone is coming soon with 4G LTE in tow.
The LG Optimus G rocks some of the most impressive specs of any smartphone to date. Truly at this moment nothing can compare — on paper at least. You’ll be getting the brand new 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor by Qualcomm, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, micro-SD support, and a massive 2,100 mAh battery for all day usage. Sadly however they’ve dropped the impressive 13 megapixel camera in favor of a 8 MP shooter instead.
The Optimus G has one of the best displays on any smartphone we’ve used to date, being a 4.7-inch TrueHD IPS panel by LG. It features their new screen technology making the screen closer to your finger (and eyes) for a vivid and colorful experience that is also very accurate and has a great response time. We’ve already checked out this awesome phone and you’ll want to take a peek at our LG Optimus G hands-on.
Here’s what Jeff Bradley, Senior VP of AT&T had to say about this awesome new smartphone:
“The LG Optimus G lets our customers work and play as hard as they want with one of our first quad core processor designed to deliver a great multitasking experience.” and “We think customers will really enjoy having the power of a computer in the palm of their hand.”
This is LG’s newest flagship device aiming right at Samsung’s Galaxy S III. LG’s improved their interface although we still have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and not Jelly Bean, but you’ll get zero shutter lag with the camera, simultaneously take pictures and video, picture-in-picture features for videos and apps and much more. This device was previously rumored as the LG Eclipse 4G LTE but it appears they’ll be sticking to that Optimus G name after all.
AT&T and LG haven’t announced pricing or an official release date, but previous rumors put this device coming in right around the end of October so stay tuned! We’re also hearing the Now Network will get this impressive phone too. Hit the links below for all our Optimus G coverage.
