LG has confirmed that its next flagship smartphone, the Optimus G, will be releasing in the US sometime in November. LG officially announced and launched the phone yesterday in South Korea, and we even got our hands on it just to see what we’d be getting ourselves into come November.
We heard about the Optimus G about a month ago at IFA 2012, but it wasn’t until yesterday when LG officially unveiled it to the public. It’s said to be coming to AT&T as the Eclipse 4G LTE, but that’s all we’ve heard as far as potential carriers and names. To see a quick glance of the Korean model of the Optimus G, check out our hands-on video below.
The Optimus G features a 4.7-inch 1280×768 IPS display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a whopping 13MP rear camera. Unfortunately, it doesn’t run Jelly Bean, but here’s hoping that by the time it comes to the States, it’ll be ready for a Jelly Bean update. It’s currently running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
We can only hope that LG can make a dent in the smartphone market with there upcoming flagship device. It will certainly take on the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S III and its domination of the Android marketplace is certainly anyone’s to take.
