LG has announced the launch schedule for the Optimus G that they unveiled in late August. It’s going to be out first next week in Korea, and is due out in the US in November. If you didn’t catch the introduction, the LG Optimus G will be positioned as the flagship for the company’s smartphone line with a quad-core processor that’s expected to outperform the Samsung Galaxy S III.
Powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro ‘Krait’ processor and 2GB of RAM, the Optimus G will also be fronted by a 4.7-inch WXGA IPS-LCD screen with a resolution of 1280 x 768. Other highlights include a 1.3MP front-facing cam, a 13MP camera at the rear, 4G LTE network support, and Android 4.0.4. For connectivity, the phone will rock Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-fi, MHL, DLNA and NFC. A 2,100mAh battery is listed to be good for up to 15 hours of talk time or up to 335 hours on standby.
Pricing for the US wasn’t announced, but it will debut in Korea with a price tag that amounts to around $895 off-contract.
Here’s a video from LG that talks about the “world’s best, ultra compact, and ultra slim camera” on the Optimus G.
