Last week we reported that Qualcomm’s next processor, the Snapdragon S4 Pro, would be landing in an LG handset first. Sure enough, we’ve now got the relevant specs for LG’s upcoming flagship handset the Optimus G, and it’s going to be an absolute monster. Watch out Galaxy S3…
LG’s Android career has been rocky. The manufacturer’s been sloppy with software updates and has knocked out a few duff handsets along the way. What it really needs is a noteworthy flagship that can trouble the top tier. And that’s exactly what the LG Optimus G is.
If the spec sheet is to be believed, the LG Optimus G will boast a True HD IPS LCD 4.7-inch display with a stonkingly high 768 x 1280 pixel resolution. That’s all sitting above the Qualcomm chipset – a 1.5GHz, quad-core powerhouse with 2GB of RAM. There’s a 13-Megapixel camera on the back and a 1.3 on the front.
All in all, that’s a hugely impressive laundry list of market-leading specs. The only downside? Android 4.0. With LG’s software update track record being poor, you’ll need to cross all your fingers in hope that a new leaf gets turned, and that Android 4.1 will arrive soon after launch.
Tempted? The LG Optimus G is set for release at some stage within the next couple of months.
