Official: LG Optimus G available from AT&T November 2, pre-orders start tomorrow

AT&T has gone official with details on the availability of the LG Optimus G. The phone will launch on November 2nd for $199.99, but you can place a pre-order as early as tomorrow. The Optimus G features a quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2GB RAM, and LTE support. In other words, it’s Android gone beast mode. The phone is also said to be the basis for the LG Nexus handset rumored to launch later this month.

The Optimus G will also launch on Sprint, which is actually slightly different than the one that will launch on AT&T, which can be seen in our comparison of the two. We’ll have a full review of AT&T’s model shortly.

    So is this basically what the LG Nexus will be? In the same sense that the Galaxy S is what the Nexus S was, etc.

      I’ve read the LG Nexus does not support LTE. Only GSM. This appears to support LTE. A shame if the Nexus doesn’t support it. The hardware is the best we’ve seen in a while.

        Well the s4 pro has lte built in so it should be there

        • Butters619

          If the Nexus has LTE and at least 16GB of storage, I will be getting it, but all the rumors and leaks say no LTE.

          The dual core S4 has built in LTE too, but there was also a version without LTE used for the One S.

        I don’t have LTE on my GSM Nexus, and I don’t care to have it since I’m on wifi most of the time. I understand the love LTE gets, but good old fake 4G is good enough for me right now. Especially since I can get such a dope phone for cheap unlocked.

      The nexus might be a cheapened out version of this. Google has been going the “Cheap But Good” route.

        “Cheap but good”? my gnex cost me over $300….. Damn u Verizon.

        • Crimsonshadow774

          An unlocked one would have cost you $600.

          • munee

            Would have been the idea thing to do but i had to leave Sprint fast. And thats almost what i paid for my gnex and my gf rezound together so that was not an option.

      • Oleg Ostrovskiy

        The Nexus 7 is Cheap but Good.

  • timmyjoe42

    I’d hold out for an unlocked Nexus any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    • RavenFox



    A really good looking phone.

  • Max

    It would be smart to reveal the Nexus now.

  • Butters619

    Beast phone, but I’m still not a fan of the wider (1280×768) display.

  • Bwahahaha

    Will the nexus version possibly come to Verizon?
