    LG just this morning stunned the press with their newest official announcement. They confirmed their new quad-core Beast that we have been hearing so many rumors about. It will be called the LG Optimus G, and it's specs literally blow away the competition. Here's the smackdown:
    • 4.70 inches True HD IPS+ (768 x 1280 pixels & 318ppi)
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 - Quad core, 1500 MHz, Krait, with Adreno 320
    • 2GB RAM
    • 32GB Storage
    • 13MP (1080p video) Rear Camera
    • 2100 mAh
    • Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich
    • Support for all 4G Radios & also includes NFC
    • Thinner, narrower & shorter than the SGS3 and the HTC One X
    • Premium Materials
    LG might just have themselves a market "coup" on their hands, with this one. What do you guys think? Could this phone entice you to try out LG if you haven't already?

    :icon_eek: whoa. Those are some damn serious specs. Don't know how long a 2100mah battery will last in that monster, but that's why there's travel chargers and spare batteries. On a more negative note, if samsung got sued for their phones looking like iPhones, LG is gonna get shut down, that thing looks more like it than any phone I can remember


    I also LOVE how they said straight off the bat it's capable of running on any carrier's 4G. So us VZW folks don't need to stress about whether we'll be able to get it or not...

    Impressive specs but its so iphoneish. And with that snapdragon it is probably a portable heating pad.

    Seriously impressive specs. That's got the power of mid-tier laptops from just a few years ago.

    Meh. iPhone was definitely not the first thing I thought when I saw that. If anything it's a natural progression of the LG Prada, a device that dropped prior to the iPhone, with changes to the bezel/accents.

    My first thought was, "there's a non-QWERTY device that I would actually consider." My biggest concerns are: 1) What will the dev community look like? 2) Is it worth risking it with an LG knowing their history with updates? 3) How's that battery going to hold up? As it has full 4G support it seems likely this will end up on VZ, and if it doesn't then VZ is just blind to the market.
