LG Optimus G leaked to be OEM’s most powerful smartphone yet?


LG could be getting ready to drop a monster of a device if recent rumors are to be believed. AsiaToday has claimed to have heard of one “LG Optimus G,” a superphone that would rival the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S3.

It’s said to feature LTE with VoLTE capabilities, a 4.7 inch TrueHD IPS display, 2GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel camera, and a quad-core SoC of unknown variety. Naturally we’d guess Tegra 3 or Qualcomm’s quad-core S4, but anything’s liable to be inside that beast.

For software, LG’s bringing their latest Optimus UI atop a healthy helping of Ice Cream Sandwich. So are we slated to see this thing at IFA? We can’t say for sure.

LG will definitely be at IFA for a few different areas of their electronics business, but it’s possible they could be leaving this phone behind until a later date. But we’re keeping our fingers crossed that they’ll add on to the already exciting showing we expect to see in Berlin starting August 31st. [via PocketDroid]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  3. >.> wtf 13 mp cam, quad core, 2g ram, I really hope they don’t screw it up, the only thing that would make this any better sounding is if it came with on screen nav

  4. Now if another company would do something similar. I dont know why but I just dont feel all that comfortable buying an LG phone. Brand phobia I guess?

    1. People once said the same thing about Samsung, back when the best Android was a Motorola Droid.

  5. Too bad it’s LG…

    1. Kinda what I was thinking. Weak tech and weak build. Weak.

  7. Samsung used to have the reputation for making worthless hardware, maybe LG will shed that too.
