LG Optimus G unveiled
The phone itself is slightly thicker than the iPhone 5 and features an all-glass front and back housing LG’s Crystal Reflection system.
Other features include a 4.7-inch 1280×768 True HD IPS PLUS display screen with Zerogap Touch technology. It also possesses a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor plus LTE connectivity and 2GB of RAM.
The camera is quite large at 13 megapixels, and has auto-focus and LED flash. There is also a 1.3 megapixel camera for networking, while storage capability is 32GB. Interestingly, there is no MicroSD slot, which has become standard on many smartphones nowadays.
As well as built-in NFC technology, the device also possesses the usual features expected, such as Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth.
While pleased overall with this new handset, experts are rather surprised that Jelly Bean is not being used as the operating system. Instead, the LG Optimus G comes pre-installed with Ice Cream Sandwich.
Another interesting feature is that users can see two different screens simultaneously via the phone’s QSlide Function. LG management calls this feature Cross Talking.
Finally, one other interesting feature is the handset is 4G enabled, which will please those who want to get their hands on a phone other than an iPhone that can use 4G. That assumes that Everything Everywhere (EE) decides to offer the smartphone to the UK market.
At the moment, nothing has been announced by EE.
