Introducing the LG Optimus G, LG finally made a real device
I guess every manufacturer has its title brand, Motorola and its RAZRs, Sony and their Xperias, and LG with their Optimus‘…errr Optimi? Whatever. THIS is, or at least should be, LG’s flagship device for this year — the device is the LG Optimus G, and it’ll be competing with the like of the One X and Galaxy S 3. Let’s just hope LG doesn’t
fuck mess it up.
Besides the sleek design that you see above, I mean come on look at that 3mm bezel, the Opt G features a ground breaking set of specifications. Check this out:
- 4.7-inch True HD IPS+ Display (1280 x 768 resolution)
- 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 Pro quad-core processor
- 2GB of RAM
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
- 2,100 mAh battery
- 13MP rear camera
- 1.3MP front camera
- 4G LTE
- Dual-Screen Dual Play
I can’t wait to test out that processor, combined with the battery, this phone should last more than a day easily. Also, with the 13MP camera, I would be able to take wicked pictures and see ever bit of clarity on the HD IPS+ screen. The only thing somewhat holding it back is having Ice cream sandwich (Android 4.0) instead of Jellybean (Android 4.1). But what is the dual-screen, dual play feature, you say? No it’s not like the Kyocera Echo, it’s what LG is calling their mirroring mode. Yet, this is not just an ordinary mirroring feature, whilst watching a movie from your phone on your tv, you will still be able to respond to texts and emails. INSANITY!
Korea should have this device rather quickly, while Japan will be “opting in” somewhere around October or November. Even better, Japan’s variant of the Optimus G will feature a nice red coat and extra fluff in the form of an infrared transmitter, waterproofing, and LG’s new Palette UI. As a Verizon customer, I would love (but am definitely not holding my breath) for Verizon, or any US carrier really, to snag this beast. I’d definitely say that the Galaxy S 3 has a run for its money with the G.
What do you guys think?
