LG to take the wraps off of its beast on September 19th?
Remember the scene in King Kong when the big Gorilla is unveiled to the world amid the constant popping of flashbulbs? Ok, it isn't really the same thing, but imagine if you would the same excitement and awe on September 19th. That's when LG introduces its beast, the LG Optimus G. The event, produced by both LG and Qualcomm, shows off the phone that LG developed using vertical integration. In other words, when it came to innovations for the handset, the Korean manufacturer ate its own home cooking. And toss in that quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ 8064, and you have a phone that not only has a quad-core processor, but also LTE connectivity. And when you need your graphics crunched, the Adreno 320 will be happy to oblige. Some regions of the world will see a 13MP camera on back, while the rest will have to settle for 8MP.

Will LG and Qualcomm unveil the LG Optimus G on September 19th?

Will LG and Qualcomm unveil the LG Optimus G on September 19th?

LG wanted a smartphone that could stand up to the Samsung Galaxy S III, and some of the specs show that LG has succeeded, at least on paper. The LG Optimus G has 2GB of RAM, something seen on the stateside version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. And don't forget that the U.S. Samsung Galaxy S III models (outside of the T-Mobile model) have LTE connectivity but no quad-core processor. My oh my, has LG come a long way since its first U.S. sold smartphone, the LG INCITE.

Verizon customers could be getting excited as a version of the phone named the LG Optimus Blaze is allegedly heading to Big Red. On the 19th, we should find out more information on launch dates, price, specs and more. If the display really does make it look like the images on the screen are floating under your finger, LG could have the beginning of the franchise model that they so desperately need to compete with those top-shelf models that get updated every year like the Apple iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy S line.

Yes, it is. However this phone will be better than the iPhone 5.

I thought like that about the Optimus 2X, and i bought it, must i say LG sucks at updating their devices. My Optimus 2X still hasn't got ICS and it was one of LG's flagship devices last year.

Carriers are a big part of why phones aren't updated. ICS would probably be on the Spectrum by now if it weren't for Big Red, the Nitro on AT&T is practically the same phone and it's had it for a couple of months now. In fact every Optimus LTE has it but the Spectrum.

I would've put this, but sadly, most of the awesome stuff that Oppo makes never comes to US market.

I can't wait to put this on a nice little unlimited data plan for Sprint. Quad core, with that screen? You'd be disappointed in buying anything else of the same price.

Does anyone else think there's a slight possibility the "G" in the Optimus G moniker might indicate the phone will be a bone stock Google device. Kind of an LG version of the Galaxy series? Probably just wishful thinking on my part, but I'm allowed to dream right?
