LG Optimus G officially launched in Korea, expected globally in November

LG has officially launched its new flagship device in South Korea, the LG Optimus G, at a press conference yesterday. Touted as the most powerful Android smartphone in the world, the Optimus G certainly features some impressive specifications. It will begin shipping in Korea sometime next week, and global availability is expected in November, preceded by Japan in October.

The LG Optimus G has been priced at 1,000,000 Won (roughly $896, or Rs. 48,500). Let us take a look at those specifications again, starting with the processor, memory and graphics: the Optimus G runs on a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, combined with 2GB of RAM and a quad-core Adreno 320 GPU.

The Optimus G bears a 4.7-inch True HD IPS display said to deliver 470 nits of brightness, avoid screen burn-in, and use 70% less power than a regular LCD when displaying all-white. The Optimus G also features G2 Hybrid Touch technology, with a 30% thinner gapless panel, reducing the distance from glass to screen.

The 8.45mm-thick Optimus G will ship with Android 4.0.4 ICS onboard, with a Jelly Bean due soon after launch. Depending on the region, the Optimus G will be available with either an 8MP autofocus camera with LED flash, or a 13MP camera. Connectivity options include 3G/4G (HSDPA, HSUPA, LTE), Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n with Direct/DLNA/Hotspot functionality, microUSB, Bluetooth, and NFC.

Other features of the LG Optimus G include Dolby mobile sound enhancement, active noise cancellation with dedicated mic, and a 2,100 mAh battery that is rated to last 800 full recharge cycles, and deliver up to 15 hours of talk time, and 335 hours of standby time. The device will weigh 145 grams, and features 32GB of built-in storage.

While LG usually keeps its UI customization light and is quite scanty with native apps, it has added a few for the Optimus G, which will feature Optimus UI as a skin, QSlide Function for multi-screen functions, Application Link that works as a preset app once the alarm is turned off, and finally, the Cheese Shutter, which takes pictures based on voice commands.
