Well we can’t say that we’re too surprised here. After hearing about a certain LG quad-core device being worked on behind the scenes, it took a few more hints like Qualcomm being all giddy and even a tease from LG to really generate more interest and excitement. Of course, after seeing the device in plain view would naturally cause LG to go ahead and spill the beans on the LG Optimus G. The superphone has features that you would expect in a premium device: a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a whopping 13MP camera + 1.3MP front camera, 2,100mAh battery and a 4.7-inch True HD IPS 1280 x 768 display. Oh and the device will feature Android 4.0.
The LTE-powered device will launch in Korea next month, followed by a global launch by the end of the year. All that’s left to see now is how many customers would be willing to take a gamble on the questionable history of the LG brand and go for what will unquestionably be one of the best (if not, the best) smartphones of 2012.
