LG today announced the Optimus G, a new flagship Android smartphone that will debut first in Korea before reaching other markets around the world later this year. The Optimus G runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and includes a 4.7-inch, 1280 x 768 in-plane switching HD display with 330 pixels per inch and a 15:9 aspect ratio. LG said the new display was developed to be thinner than previous generation touch screen panels. The Optimus G is one of the first phones to ship with a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro (APQ8064) processor, which is paired with an Adreno GPU and 2GB of RAM. Other features include a 13-megapixel main camera and a 1.3-megapixel user-facing camera, 2100mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Wi-Fi, NFC, and support for LTE 4G networks. LG hasn't specified if the U.S. is on the list of markets that will receive the Optimus G later this year.

Does LG have enough brand loyalty

to compete in the high-end smartphone market successfully? The specs on this thing are almost ridiculously impressive, but I couldn't see myself buying this over an SIII or One X or even one of Motorola's phones. After the original Optimus I don't think I've seen any of the variants come through personally, and I've never really seen them in the "wild" either.
The LG Optimus Black is really, really popular here in Canada. It's a pretty good phone too, 4" Nova display, 1 Ghz. The Nova display is really the selling point - it can get brighter than the surface of the sun. That is the only good LG device I ...

Hmm, Apple

I wonder how long it will take Apple to sue over the looks of this device. They should have shaped it like a banana to be safe! lol
Apple has a patent on the banana phone too. They are currently in the process of suing Fred Penner.

All he wanted was a phone with appeal !

(get it, it has a peal, rofl)

Time will tell

With these specs, I think they may actually end up selling quite a few phones. There're not going to be many quad core phones out, at the time and depending on the carrier(s) they decide to go with, they they will have the push they need. There're still a lot of people who will be impressed with the specs and will get the phone just for that alone.

Personally, I love the specs of the phone but, I do not require them. As long as the phone works with minimum issues, has great battery life and does what I need it to do, im good.

Although, if the hardware proves itself and LG gets good customer satisfaction rating on the phone itself, I may be inclined to upgrade to such a phone, when it's time. Providing they have a WP8 version.
