LG’s Optimus G, which is scheduled to be shown off at a press event in New York City tomorrow, has officially been in announced in South Korea today. While it’s technically not the first smartphone…
LG keeps the ball rolling with its next flagship phone, the Optimus G. After the superphone was officially introduced a couple of days ago in the company’s home country, which was then followed by a glitzy NYC-style coming out party to mark its eventual arrival in the U.S. before year’s end, LG has now announced the availability of the device for the Canadian market.
For a change, you need not wait too long for the Optimus G as it will come to Canada in November 2012. Unlike the lack of some grisly details on its expected American launch, LG has also shared the carriers that will be offering the LTE-equipped phone in Canada.
According to the press release, the Optimus G will be available on Bell, Rogers, and Telus. The quad-core phone will also hit retail stores like Tbooth wireless, The Source, Wirelesswave, WIRELESS, and more.
The only piece of information that‘s still missing is the price of the phone. We’re sure that the many superlatives – Android’s most powerful smartphone, etc – that have been placed on the shoulder of the Optimus G will be clearly reflected on its price tag. We’re probably looking at what the Galaxy S3 was selling when it first came out.
How much are you willing to shell out for the Optimus G and its 4.7-inch True HD IPS display, quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU, 32GB onboard storage, 2,100mAh battery, and Ice Cream Sandwich? Yes, it’ll only ship with ICS, though a Jelly Bean upgrade is promised in Q2 2013.
