LG Optimus G U.S. release date set for November
The LG Optimus G is a behemoth of a phone not for its size, but mostly for its internals - it’s the first mass produced phone to come with the Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core chip and you bet it’s impressive. It’s also gorgeous looking with a beautiful back glass and a thin profile. Best of all, now, it’s confirmed that the Optimus G will hit the United States right in time for the Holiday shopping season in November.

There are no details about which carriers will pick up the LG Optimus G in the U.S., but we’re sure more details will soon surface.

LG is breaking a couple of firsts with the Optimus G and obviously there is a lot at stake and hopes are high that this will mark a turnaround point for LG. The Optimus G comes with a “zerogap” integrated touch screen with a 4.7-inch size and 768x1280-pixel resolution.

The phone itself is merely 8.45-inch thick and right now seems to arrive in two versions with different cameras - one with an 8-megapixel shooter and another with a slighlty bulging 13-megapixel rear camera. It’s launching with Android 4.0 ICS on board, but it should swiftly get update to Jelly Bean. How do you like the news? Would you wait for this monster phone from LG coming in November?

I agree. Samsung may have a "crappy"plasticky body but they have the most solid Android software IMO. Users don't complain at the OS level they complain on the build. I hope the software on the optimus G is great, I hope the camera delivers and hope LG put a louder higher quality sound chip. This or Note 2 depends on which comes first.

nerdgasm all over if this becomes LG's entry nexus device with stock Android inside.

I definitely love to have this phone but I am skeptical because of LG's record with buggy software and lack of updates. I may still buy it though.

Hopefully they will not lock the bootloader so custom ROMs can be made even if LG does not support the software for long.

Once my contract expires, I'll have just enough time to grab the "newly released" Note 3.

LG updated is LG Nitro to ICS, before Samsung could update the S2, and other high end androids.

This is deff a phone I will keep in mind for a holiday Upgrade.
