LG Optimus G coming to Sprint and AT&T

LG Optimus G coming to Sprint and AT&T
Ever since LG announced that it was going to build the most powerful smartphone in its history, there has been a buzz circulating around the LG Optimus G. Last month, LG announced that the device would be landing on U.S shores in the fourth quarter with different carrier versions. That became a bit more specific on Wednesday when LG confirmed that the LG Optimus G would be coming to both AT&T and Sprint. The AT&T model will have an 8MP camera on back while Sprint's model will feature a 13MP camera.

Both models will have 4G LTE connectivity which now will work with the quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro under the hood. 2GB of RAM is on board as is 32GB of native storage which can be expanded to 80GB using the microSD slot on the phone. The 2100mAh battery keeps the power on for hours, lighting the 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPS Plus Display.

Regardless of which camera is in on the model you want, it will have zero shutter lag, the ability to take video and snapshots at the same time and a feature that captures the perfect shot even if you press the shutter at the wrong time. The Live Zooming feature lets you zoom in up to 5 times on streamed video. Similar to the multiwindow function on the Samsung GALAXY Note II, Q-Slide lets you view two different screens at the same time. You can handle work-related email on one screen while viewing a video clip on the other screen. Quick Memo lets you use your fingers to write a note on a captured screenshot and sent it off via your social networks or email.

There is no word yet on pricing or a precise launch date.
