LG Optimus G to challenge iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3 with monster specs

LG has officially announced its latest flagship smartphone, the Optimus G, featuring some rather impressive specs that could finally give the phone-maker its place among the stars.

Due to launch in home ground South Korea next month, the Optimus G is a beast of a kit, featuring a 4.7-inch True HD IPS display with a mouth-watering 1280 x 768 resolution, a 13-megapixel camera and a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset - the first handset to do so – with 2GB of RAM for good measure.

Elsewhere on board are an Adreno 320 GPU, Bluetooth 4.0, Near Field Communications support and a 2,100mAh battery, plus a cutting-edge new glass panel that integrates the touch sensor for improved responsiveness.

All of that is crammed into an ultra-thin 8mm chassis. If we’re honest, it’s one of the smarter looking handsets we’ve seen lately, which isn’t a compliment given often to LG kits.

The Optimus G will make its international debut in October or November starting with Japan’s NTT Docomo. The rest of the world will shortly follow.

Pricing is as yet unknown but given the specs on board we reckon at least in the region of £500 when bought SIM free. Stay tuned for more gen in the weeks to come.
