LG launched the original version of the Optimus G back in the summer of last year and they've now confirmed that the 4G version of the smartphone will roll-out worldwide this month.
The hardware inside the 4G version of the LG Optimus G is identical to the original in every way apart from the addition of support for super-fast 4G LTE networks. We're hopeful that the mobile will be made available on EE's 4G network when it lands in the UK.
What specification does the LG Optimus G 4G LTE feature ?
LG's Optimus 4G LTE has a 4.7 inch True HD IPS+ display which runs at a resolution of 1280*720 pixels, which puts it on par with anything currently on the market. The smartphone's power is also impressive thanks to a quad-core 1.5 Ghz Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM.
The Optimus G 4G LTE also has a 13 mega-pixel front-facing camera, while onboard memory comes in at 32GB. Supported connectvity includes 4G, 3G, WiFi Bluetooth and NFC.
LG's smartphone runs on Google's Android platform and the good news is that it now comes pre-loaded with Android Jelly Bean. We presume this means that the original Optimus G will be updated to the latest version of Android very soon.
Overall it's a pretty impressive smartphone and a good alternative to the Galaxy S3. We hope to review the 4G version of the Optimus G shortly, so keep posted.
Didn't LG just announce the LG Optimus G Pro ?
LG have indeed just announced the LG Optimus G Pro which is an improved version of the Optimus G. The smartphone, which also supports 4G, has a 5 inch full HD touch-screen, an octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13 mega-pixel camera.
The smartphone isn't due to launch in the UK until the summer of this year, so if you can wait you might be better holding off for the Optimus G Pro. However, we couldn't put people of buying the Optimus G 4G LTE !
