Fifty new LTE markets await the LG Optimus G, now laden with Jelly Bean

Fifty new LTE markets await the LG Optimus G, now laden with Jelly Bean
The flagship LG Optimus G was originally launched in the U.S., Canada, Korea and Japan and since then it has sold 1 million handsets. Yes, that pales in comparison to the 2 million Apple iPhone 5 units sold in China during the first weekend after the phone was released in that country. Don't even bring up the number of units that Samsung has shipped of the Samsung Galaxy S III. Last week, we told you that that the LG Optimus G was heading to China and Europe, but we actually have an official itinerary since it is coming from LG.

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.
