It’s one of the most impressive devices I’ve ever had the pleasure of placing inside my sweaty palms and only a few hours after the AT&T version was officially dated, now Sprint customers can get in on the excitement as well. Sprint has officially announced the LG Optimus G for a November 11th launch with pre-orders beginning on November 1st for early birds.
At only $200 with a 2-year agreement, the LG Optimus G packs a lot of bang for the buck. You’re getting a device with excellent build quality, a 4.7-inch True HD IPS 720p display, Qualcomm quad-core S4 processor, 13MP camera, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, NFC and running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The crème de la crème. Yes, this features LG’s all new skin but I must say, it’s definitely my favorite manufacturer UI so far (yes, I just totally went there). Don’t forget, LG recently announced the Optimus G would be receiving Android 4.2 Jelly Bean starting in December (for Korea), so we’d expect a US rollout shortly after.
We’ve been putting the device through its paces since last week, so expect a full review in the coming days. In the meantime, you can drool over the new features LG’s bringing to the table in their official product movie (trust us, it’s pretty amazing). Also, don’t forget to check out our comparison post between the Sprint and AT&T versions as well as our quick hands-on with the Sprint G at MobileCON last week. Stay tuned for more, folks.
