LG Optimus G leaked as quad-core 4G LTE powerhouse

Rumor has it that LG is preparing their next-gen smartphone for the world of Android. The device is being called the LG Optimus G for now, and so far the specs sound rather impressive and their best yet. Based on reports from AsiaToday this phone will rock LG's current lineup with a quad-core processor and multiple other tricks up its sleeve.

According to reports this Optimus G will not just sport 4G LTE, but will be a powerful quad-core device that also supports VoLTE (Voice-over 4G LTE), packed with 2GB of RAM, a quality 13 megapixel camera, and of course LG's 4.7-inch True IPS display technology. Sounds pretty nice right?

Other specs include Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich (we'd prefer Jelly Bean) and LG's latest Optimus UI v3.0 that was recently released. Details on the processor are pretty thin, and all we know is the SoC will be a quad-core processor capable of VoLTE services. That sort of rules out NVIDIA considering their just barely integrating regular 4G LTE with their Tegra 3.

Most likely this new and impressive sounding beast of a smartphone from LG will have Qualcomm's brand new S4 Pro quad-core processor we saw last month, but nothing has been confirmed. Take the power of the dual-core S4 in the Galaxy S III and double it -- yes please! IFA 2012 is coming up later this month in Berlin, Germany, and LG could make an announcement during that event so we'll be sure and stay tuned for more details. Could this be the rumored LG Eclipse 4G LTE quad-core headed to AT&T later this year? Check that out and more quad-core news below.
