If you can’t beat ’em, pad your product with flowery language. That seems to be the message LG is sending as it prepares for the inevitable global launch of the Optimus G. The Android smartphone boasts some of the most robust specs we’ve ever seen — a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB RAM, a HD IPS screen and a 13MP camera — but the first teaser of the device claims that “everything you thought was impossible will be possible.”
There’s no doubt that the Optimus G will impress on the hardware front — though we’re not sure how easy the quad-core SoC will be on battery life — but it’s on software that LG is known to underwhelm. While the company has boasted many improvements recently with its Optimus UI, including Quick Memo and other nifty features, its Android interface has traditionally been saddled with cartoony icons and underwhelming performance. With the launch of Jelly Bean, let’s hope LG can right its smartphone ship.
Hit the break for the full teaser.
