LG Optimus G Price & Release date in india, Specs and Reviews
The LG Optimus G will be LG’s top smartphone this holiday season and as we’re getting closer to its market launch (reportedly, later this month), the company is eager to keep its device in the headlines.
The company has published a nice set of short video ads this week, meant to show you more about the phone. As a quick specs recap, the LG Optimus G runs on the latest quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 processor with a top-of-the-line Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM.
Other important features include a 4.7-inch, 720p True HD IPS display, a 13 megapixel camera, a 2,100mAh battery and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.
The first video is an ad, which doesn’t show much about the smartphone, but makes a bold claim about its capabilities, stating “Get Ready for your unlimited life where everything is possible, with LG Optimus G.”
LG has another video, which touts the battery used in the Optimus G as being the latest in the development of Li-Polymer batteries. You can watch the technology details yourself.
The high-resolution True HD IPS Plus screen used in the Optimus G deserves a video of its own.
And finally, here’s one revealing more about the Qualcomm S4 chipset used in the device.
There will be more videos soon, so if you are interested, make sure you follow the LG Facebook page about the Optimus G

LG Optimus G coming to the US on September 19
LG and Qualcomm sent invitations for a joint event that will be held in New York on September 19.
The invitation clearly shows that it will be all about some new smartphone and it would be a real shocker if the device in question isn't the US version of the Optimus G.
The event is called Live Without Boundaries, but that doesn't really give us much information about the nature of the smartphone to be announced. However there's still an important clue to be found on the invitation, pointing to the fact that the it's going to be quad-core Krait-powered LG Optimus G.
The LG Optimus G has already been announced for Korea so we have an official photo of it. Now if you use some image editing software to edit the invitation image and brighten up the shadows (as we did), you can see the device pictured has the same back as the Optimus G. The most telling evidence is the loudspeaker grille location and the texture on the back.
Of course it could all be merely a coincidence and LG might announce something else entirely, but chances of that happening are slim. We’ll be covering the event for you, so feel free to come back next Wednesday to find out.
LG Optimus G commercial for South Korea shows up on YouTube [video]
The first television commercial for the highly anticipated LG Optimus G made its way to YouTube today. The catch? You’ll have to speak Korean to fully understand it.
With the official unveiling of the Optimus G in South Korea only days away, the clip, titled “I’m a Boy” is expected to make its first appearance on television after the event. Though short, the clip does make a point of showing off the Optimus G’s 13-megapixel camera and its 4G LTE capabilities.
The Optimus G is LG’s new flagship phone, and it has the features to prove it. The phone, which runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, features a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon Pro Processor, 2GB of RAM and a 4.7-inch True HP IPS+ screen with a resolution of 1280 x 768.
We’re expecting to see details such as release date and pricing for the LG Optimus G released at the Korean event, and hopefully the phone will be unveiled for U.S. customers at the event LG and Qualcomm are holding in New York City on Wednesday, September 19.
Check out the video above. What do you think?
LG Optimus G launches in South Korea
At a special event in South Korea, LG officially launched the most powerful Android phone do date, the Optimus G
Built around a 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 (15:9 ratio), the Optimus G is powered by a Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, featuring a 1.5GHz quad-core Krait processor and the whopping 2GB of RAM. Naturally, this powerhouse boasts LTE connectivity as well as NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, and Wi-Fi with DLNA.
At the back there's gonna be either 13MP or 8MP snapper, both teamed up with a LED flash and capable of shooting 1080p video. Below the back cover resides a 2,100 mAh battery rated for 15h of talk time and 335hours of standby.
Measuring 131.9 x 68.9 x 8.45mm, the Optimus G weighs 145 grams which is pretty good for a smartphone with such large screen and powerful internals. Internal storage is 32GB.
The LG Optimus G runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with LG's proprietary Optimus UI launcher on top. However, an update to Jelly Bean is scheduled to follow in the not so distant future. Speaking of the customization LG has put on the Optimus G, it has quite a few outstanding features.
One of the most useful is called QSlide Function and it allows you to overlay two screens with different apps running on each one. You can even set the opacity level of the two screens. Some of the other interesting ones are Application Link, which launches a pre-defined app once you turn off the alarm and Cheese Shutter for taking pictures with voice commands.
The LG Optimus G will be priced at 1,000,000 Won ($896; €683) in Korea. The device goes on sale in its homeland starting next week. Global availability will follow soon afterwards.
Update: We are live from the LG Optimus G launch event in Seoul, where we've managed to spend some one on one time with the Android beast.
Design wise, the LG Optimus G looks strictly utilitarian - there practically nothing to distract you away from the gorgeous True HD IPS Plus display and all the software trickery.
Build quality is solid. The handset appears ready to take plenty of abuse. The front and the back of the LG Optimus G are covered in glass. The sides of the handset are made of plastic, which has been manufactured through a process using a six-axis laser for extremely high quality and durability.
As you already know from the press release, the Optimus G will come with 8 or 13MP main camera, depending on the market. The handset in our live photos sports the higher pixel count and noticeably sticks out of the body. We've learned that the 8MP camera will sit completely flat.
We've got an update on the LG Optimus G global availability. It will arrive in Japan in October and in the United States in November.
Here go some live shots of the white LG Optimus G. It is definitely more of an attention grabber compared to its black sibling.
Regions with LTE coverage will have priority when the rollout of the LG Optimus G begins.
The handset will get updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in Korea by the end of this year.
