LG Optimus G Smartphone To Be Released Next Month

LG finally revealed its newest premium mobile device with the announcement of the Optimus G, a high-end smartphone that offers performance and a sleek design.

The Optimus G is the first LTE device featuring Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro Quad-Core processor. LG also joined hands with vertically-integrated sister companies LG Chem, LG Display and LG Innotek in order to offer high battery capacity, viewing and user experience.

The Optimus G will be the first commercial and global smartphone to offer the Snapdragon S4 Pro (APQ8064) processor with a Quad-Core Krait CPU, LTE supported capabilities, and the newest generation Adreno 320 GPU. The Snapdragon S4 Pro runs at 1.5GHz and features Asynchronous Symmetric Multiprocessing (aSMP), which enables each core to power up and down independently, for maximum performance with better battery life. Furthermore, the Adreno 320 is over three times faster than the Adreno 225 found in previous Snapdragon processors for an enhanced gaming experience with faster frame rates, smoother play and support for higher HD resolution displays.

With help from LG Display, the Optimus G sports a 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPS+ Display with 320ppi high pixel density (1280x768 pixels) and Stripe RGB IPS Panel with 15:9 aspect ratio. According to LG, the True HD IPS+ Display is sharper and crisper with color accuracy of sRGB 100 percent to show natural and life-like images.

Moreover, the Optimus G will be the first smartphone to be equipped with LG Innotek and LG Display's newly developed G2 Touch Hybrid Display for touchscreen panels (TSP). The G2 Touch Hybrid Display is thinner than current TSPs and offers the slimmest panel display with no diffused reflection for clearer and sharper visibility, even outdoors. Thanks to the new technology, the thickness of the screen panel has been reduced and the screen itself is much stronger to withstand damage from impact.

Lastly, LG Chem developed a high-density 2,100mAh battery that provides more power capacity and prolonged charging cycles. The new battery technology extended the battery lifespan to 800 cycles at 80 percent charging capabilities, much greater than the lifespan of 500 cycles in regular phone batteries.

The Optimus G also includes a high-resolution 13.0MP camera and user experience (UX) features, such as:

- Live Zooming allows zooming in and out while viewing a video;
- Dual Screen Dual Play, not only allows mirroring between the smartphone and a TV, it also has the ability to display different content on each screen. For example, a slide presentation can be displayed on the TV while the Optimus G shows the accompanying speaking notes;
- QMemo, first seen in the Optimus Vu:, allows users to write, draw, or jot a memo directly on the captured screen with their finger for sharing instantly with others as an attachment or a URL;
- Time Catch Shot allows users to select and save the best shot among the images taken just before the shutter button is depressed;
- Cheese Shutter takes a photo when a voice command is spoken.

The Optimus G is also encased in an slim body. Premium glass is utilizied on the back cover with a polarized glass pattern that offers a modern look. The G2 Touch Hybrid Display contributed significantly to the design of the Optimus G as it reduced the thickness of the device enabling Optimus G to fit more in the hand.

NTT DOCOMO will be the first to unveil a Japanese edition of the Optimus G. The global version of the device will be launched in Korea in September, followed by other markets worldwide.
