Earlier today, LG has announced that Optimus G is coming to Korea next week, but there wasn’t any specific confirmation regarding the U.S. availability. The good folks over The Verge have reported that LG has now officially confirmed the availability of its all new quad-core smartphone for the U.S. region. The new Optimus G will launch in the U.S. sometime in November.
There is no word on carrier partners for the Optimus G handset in the U.S. We do believe that both the Verizon and AT&T network will carry this device in the States. It features 4.7-inch True HD IPS + (1280 * 768) display with “zerogap” integrated touch display technology, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, 2GB DDR2 RAM, 1.5GHz quad-core processor Qualcomm APQ 8064 processor, 32GB internal memory, 2,100mAh battery, 13MP rear-facing camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, micro USB 2.0 HS, A-GPS, DLNA, and NFC radio inside.
Some rumors are suggesting that the LG Optimus G handset will carry an industry standard 8MP camera in some regions (like Australia). So that the manufacturer can make room for other components under the hood by cutting down the size of the sensor.
