LG’s upcoming flagship Android has found itself online. The model number is LG-E973 and is reportedly called the “Optimus G.” AndroidMX has posted pics online and states that the hardware and software are not final, but currently running OS 4.0.4 – so there is a chance that we’ll see Jelly Bean 4.1.1 when it gets officially released. As for specs, similar to what has been rumoured over the past week: 4.7-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 (not 1280 x 720 as previously expected), 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, 13MP camera, and also sport three capacitive buttons ( back, home, and menu). No indication of this being LTE-enabled. There’s a couple more pics below and LG is expected to officially announce the Optimus G next week at the IFA.

    Hardware wise, this looks like a dream but we all know about lg and their horrible software support.

  • Dylan D

    Wow the back of that phone looks horrible.

  • Peter B

    It has the specs to run like a beast with a custom ROM. Should be interesting.

  • Mischa Price

    wait was that a multitasking button or menu button i couldn’t tell

  • Don

  • RyanOver

    If HTC comes out with a phone with the sames specs… I’ll buy it right away….
    LG have th bad reputation of not updating there phone and the UI are always horrible…. LG !! Y U No Using Vanilla ICS !!??

  • EvanKr

    Looks nice, but honestly, LG’s UI and software support is absolutely appalling.

  • jellmoo

    I honestly wish that they would attempt to give their phones at least the illusion of a premium feel. LG phones all have that same, plasticy look. No style at all. I mean even Samsung gave the S3 the illusion of style. LG needs to seriously step up their game if they want to play with the big boys.

    Whats the battery size?? The most important part of the phone because if it has a small battery, they might as well not release it and let Samsung work it’s magic with this hardware. Also I would rather it be HSPA+ than LTE because it’s already fast enough for a mobile phone and will save u a ton of battery life.

    s3 the illusion of style? LOOLOL

    • jellmoo

      I didn’t mean the statement as an insult to the device, though looking back I really could have phrased it better. The build and aesthetic of the S3 is really quite clever. While the material and overall design is very similar to previous S models, Samsung brainstormed and still gave it an elegance of it’s own. They lost the “plastic slab” look of earlier phones without actually changing materials or going the unibody route.

    This phone makes me want to tease my hair and dance to Bananarama……well not really but you get the picture.

  • boojay

    They really need to bring back the search button. In order of most use, it goes: Home, Back, Search, then Menu button.

    LOL that’s a 13MP sensor in there? That camera sensor looks miniscule LOL, and the aperture size is microscopic.
