LG has officially launched the Optimus G – a 1.5GHz quad-core Android that’s running Ice Cream Sandwich. The Optimus G, according to the pres release, is a “new premium flagship device” that gives users the ability to “live without boundaries.” Korea will be the first to launch this next week, then they’ll be rolling it out to “key global markets in October.” Canada will most likely release this device then as it’s LTE enabled – plus we’re attending a media event on Wednesday.
The Optimus G has several unique “User Experience (UX)” features, one of them being “cross-tasking.” LG says that multi-tasking only gives the user the ability to run various apps at the same time, while “cross-tasking applies to complex tasks that can be completed simultaneously without having to compromise other tasks.” The list of UX features include: Slide Function, Live Zooming, Dual Screen Dual Play, QuickMemo, Screen Zooming, Application Link and Icon Personalizer.
Other notable specs have the G coming with a 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPSPLUS (1280 x 768), 2GB RAM, 13MP camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 2,100mAh battery, 8.45mm thin, 145 grams, Wi-Fi, DLNA, and NFC.
We’ll bring you more details on the Canadian availability shortly.
