LG Optimus G now available for pre-order from Sprint

Sprint’s LG Optimus G, which launches November 11th, is now available for pre-order for eager customer looking to reserve a piece of the action. The Android 4.0 device features a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and sizable 13MP camera to go along with its 4.7-inch 720p display. The handset is available for $199 on a new two-year contract.

The latest flagship phone from LG, sans LTE and a few other features, forms the basis for the recently announced Nexus 4 from Google. For those not interested in a Sprint contract, the Optimus G will be available from AT&T starting tomorrow, November 2nd, though the two phones differ slightly. Check out our full review of the AT&T branded version of the device for more details. A review of Sprint’s edition is forthcoming.

    Oh Lord won’t you buy me a new android phone, my friends all use iPhones I must make amends :-D
    Nice phone, very nice & should be easy for the devs if it’s based on the Nexus to port the updates.

  • Alberto_jr

    this is the closest we will get to the nexus LG.

    Just to clarify,for those interested in this phone,it does indeed have 4G LTE capability.Crazy that this phone isn’t on ANDROID 4.1 or 4.2 out of the box.To those that opt for this phone, I sincerely hope that LG does support this phone w/timely updates/upgrades.

      Given that LG is the hardware partner for the Nexus and working hand in hand with Google, they’ve no doubt learned a thing or too about updates. Plus, the Korean version is receiving Jelly Bean next month. It’s almost guaranteed this will too, it’s just a matter of when.

        Ya know, Chris, every once in a while, you say something like this, and Totally redeem yourself!

    I want this phone, but with no UI or carrier bloat ware. And with inductive charging and Android 4.2!

      Custom ROM, will take care of most of that, perhaps.

      • Pnutt916

        Nah! I just want an LTE Nexus 4!

    @Chris

    I’m sure you’re right on this,makes sense. Just call me skeptical w/their track record & myself coming from the MO’PHO w/promises of upgrades.

    If I were in the market for a new phone, I’d steer clear of this one anyway,got 3 strikes against it out of the box: Slightly out of date O/S, no SD CARD slot, & imbedded battery.
    IMHO, kinda hard to compete w/these drawbacks,especially right before the holiday shopping season.
