LG Optimus GJ brings waterproofing to LG Optimus G in Taiwan
Fellow Korean OEM LG has announced on Wednesday that it too has a waterproof version of its top-shelf phone coming to market. The LG Optimus GJ is expected to touch down in Taiwan next month priced at $17,990 TWD ($600 USD). Most of the specs match those found on the LG Optimus G including the 4.7 inch LCD screen with 768 x 1280 resolution, the quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ 8064 and the 2GB of RAM on board. The model number of the waterproof model is LG E975W vs LG E975 for the original generation of the device.
Introduced in Taiwan on Wednesday, the LG Optimus GJ is slightly bigger than the Optimus G (131.9 x 68.9 x 8.5 mm vs. 136.9 x 68.9 x 9.9 mm) and its IPX7 designation means it can stay underwater as deep as 1 meter, for 30 minutes. This surely beats out the protection from splashes that Motorola has been putting on models like the Motorola DROID 4 and the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD. The LG Optimus GJ will be available in black and in black/red and there is no word on whether it will be released outside of Taiwan.

Not at all TROLL, I do like 'em that way. They fit perfectly in the hands. =D
Though I have to agree that there're better looking korean chicks than these two.

Wow, few peoples came here for the models not the phone. Hmm.......guys, this is PhoneArena, not SexyArena.
By the way, glad to hear that LG is joining the waterproofing family as well.

Any chance we might see a version of this phone come to Verizon? We haven't gotten a flagship LG phone since... does the Ally count? Whatever happened to the rumored Optimus Blaze?
