As we move further into the second half of the year, manufacturers are racing to release the next big Android device. For one, LG has confirmed the existence of the Optimus G and its high-end specs. While the phone will only be officially unveiled at the IFA 2012 event in Berlin at the end of the month, pictures of the Optimus G have popped up online.
There you have it, folks, the second ever confirmed phone powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 proc, after Xiaomi’s Mi2 “beast”. This unnamed LG device has also been confirmed as using the APQ8064 platform alongside an MDM9x15 LTE baseband and an Adreno 320 GPU, a combination that is expected to blow our minds and break benchmark records.
When it comes to LG smartphones, most of us generally think of a phone with reasonable quality, if not the most cutting edge features. While many Optimus smartphones are far from ‘high-end’, a new rumor suggests they may be raising the bar with the so-called Optimus G.
The Optimus G supposedly will feature a quad-core LTE design with a 4.7-inch IPS True HD display, 2GB of RAM, and an impressive 13MP camera. The heart of the phone is believed to run on Android 4.0 ICS, alongside the LG Optimus UI 3.0.
