At the end of this month, the LG Optimus G will head to Singapore and will eventually roll out in over 50 countries that are covered with LTE. The units that were released when the phone was originally launched had Ice Cream Sandwich on board. The newer version of the LG Optimus G that is about to be launched in Singapore and elsewhere will be powered by what LG calls "the latest Jelly Bean OS," and while that should mean Android 4.2, we wouldn't hold our breath on it.
Next month at MWC, LG is rumored to be unveiling the LG Optimus GK which will have a 5.5 inch screen with a FHD resolution. This fall, we should see the LG Optimus G Pro, which should be the sequel to the LG Optimus G with a 5 inch FHD display.

“As 4G LTE availability expands on a global scale, we will leverage our strong LTE technology and expertise to offer consumers the best 4G experience through our devices,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “With the latest Jelly Bean OS and improved software, Optimus G will make a strong case for the title of ultimate premium 4G LTE smartphone.”
Since the launch of Optimus G last September, the smartphone has been enthusiastically received by audiences as one of the most advanced 4G LTE devices currently available. Optimus G has been receiving accolades from consumers and industry thought leaders alike for its powerful performance and thoughtful user experience. Optimus G’s unrivaled power originates from its innovative hardware design which includes Qualcomm’s advanced Snapdragon™ S4 Pro Quad-Core processor. The device also delivers blazing fast data transfer speeds using today’s 4G LTE telecommunication network.
“LG’s long history of LTE know-how is evident in the DNA of the Optimus G,” said Dr. Park. “As such, we hope consumers will take a deep, hard look at Optimus G when deciding which smartphone will give them the best 4G experience.”
The Optimus G will be available starting at the end of January in Singapore followed by other markets worldwide offering 4G LTE service.
