It is now official. LG, in an apparent bid to keep pace with its competitors, has just officially confirmed the formal launch of Optimus G. Through this latest release under the Optimus series, LG is sending a clear message that it is bent on giving the other players in the market a run for their money. This flagship phone by LG is poised to get on a direct faceoff with the device offerings of Apple, Samsung, Motorola, HTC and Nokia.
The Optimus G fell within radar range after Qualcomm confirmed that it was supplying LG with their quad-core processor, and just recently, a number of images of the soon-to-be-released LG device were leaked and eventually made their way to several websites, along with bits and pieces of information about its specifications and features. With the official confirmation by LG, more detailed information were released, and these included the official name of the gadget and specs about its much ballyhooed cutting edge display, battery and quad core processor.
The LG Optimus G is a solid proof of the success of this South Korean electronics giant in harnessing the strengths of the various business units to create a top-tier gadget of the future. This vertical integration of advanced technologies is best exemplified by its high-definition display, which is hailed as second to none when it comes to efficiency and performance, and its battery, which is considered a cut above the rest.
The HD display of the Optimus G is second to none when it comes to efficiency and performance. It boasts of brightness equivalent to 470 nits and addresses the issue of burn-in of screen displays. The 4.7-inch HD display of the Optimus is also a power-saver as it consumes 70 percent less power while on all-white display mode compared to the ordinary LCD display of other smartphones.
This flagship device by LG for 2012 features state-of-the-art technology known as G2 Hybrid Touch. This major enhancement to the LG smartphone was the result of the collaboration between LG Display and LG Innotek. It gave us a device with a gapless panel that is 30-percent thinner, and this means cutting the space between the screen and the glass. On the other hand, LG Chem has created the sealed Lithium-Polymer battery of the Olympus G. This battery, considered as being in a league of its own, has a 2100-mAh capacity and a rated recharge cycle of 800.
Aside from the quad-core processor, the other specifications of the LG Optimus G include a 13MP back-end camera with built-in LED flash, 2GB of RAM, NFC and MHL capabilities, Bluetooth 4.0 and Adreno 320 GPU. High end features of this gadget include the Time Catch Shot, Face Detection, active noise cancellation, Dolby mobile sound enhancement, Smart Shutter and Noise Reduction.
People at LG are tight-lipped as to the price details of this new handheld powerhouse, although some observers say they will not be surprised if users will be set back by more than $750 when they get their hands on this new LG gadget.
