LG Optimus Blaze to be Verizon's model of the LG Optimus G?
posted by FAUguy / Sep 11, 2012, 6:35 PM
We've received word from another Verizon insider that they have also been told about this LG Optimus Blaze, and that it would come with 2GB of RAM, along with the specs that were leaked below....
The upcoming LG Optimus G is expected to be one of the first smartphones to use Qualcomm's new Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. One of the main advantages of the Snapdragon S4 Pro (besides it being quad-core) is that it comes with the updated Adreno 320 GPU for even better graphics and uses 28nm die for lower power consumption.
We've now received word from an insider at Verizon stating at a recent manager's meeting, it was mentioned that there would be an LG Optimus Blaze, based on the LG Optimus G. We're told the LG Optimus Blaze would use the Snapdragon S4 Pro with a clock speed of 1.7 GHz, though it is not mentioned if it would be the quad-core or dual-core version. The high-end smartphone will also feature a 4.7" Super IPS+ display with a resolution of 768x1280 pixels, and a sport a 13MP autofocus camera on the rear.
It is also expect that the LG Optimus Blaze would be the first device certified to run on the (unannounced) Verizon 4G LTE+ network (also known as LTE Advanced). The benefit of LTE+ is added security, faster data transmissions, as well as higher quality voice with VoLTE. Supposedly, Verizon will be "upgrading" its current LTE network to LTE+ starting next year - though no time frame is given on how long this may take.
Lastly, the person says that the LG Optimus Blaze is expected to have a pre-order date near the end of October with a release on November 16th, just inn time for the holiday season. Pricing was said to be $299 with a 2-year contract for the black or white model, but there will also be a "special edition" version with brushed metal.
At this point, we can only hope this will happen, as there is also the HTC 6435LVW 1080p phablet device (still unannounced), not to mention the Motorola DROID RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD - both of which are coming out this Fall.

go in this an never close this tab/browser until it's done. I dare you, I double dare you m*therf**ker. :))) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v
Anyways, HTC's rumored device might be a monster, 1080p resolution for a 5 inch display device, suweeeeet! If HTC's would come with same processor with that of this G, I suggest you better get that. ;)

i dont usually like lg phones and have never got one but this is a monster of a tablet let alon of a phone size. I would go on to say that 1.7 gh is almost to much for batter consumtion and i wold be happier if it would be under clocked a little. Heck who am i kidden i will end up over clocking the damn thing as high as it will go any way. but that said i hope it comes in phablet size 5.5 screen size with no bezel to make it a normal size phone

Samsung Galaxy Blaze was patent by Samsung no more Blaze on other phone. Samsung will sue LG on Optimus Blaze. Now Samsung is addicted on patent wars like Apple.

Looks like LG is trying to redeem themselves in the mobile industry. Does anyone know if this is uni-body or not? I looked at the pictures, and I haven't seen any notches for the back plate to be removed, but any clarification from anyone?
