LG Optimus G launches in South Korea next week and in October elsewhere
Has such an eagerly awaited device like the LG Optimus G transformed from a mere wisp of water cooler gossip to a real legitimate model ready to be launched in so quick a time? It all started in early August with speculation about a high end model coming to Sprint and AT&T called the LG Eclipse 4G LTE. This phone was expected to launch in October and compete with other top-shelf models like the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Apple iPhone 5. The device was said to be equipped with a 4.67 inch screen with 720p resolution. Under the hood one would supposedly find the quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Sanspdragon S4 pro APQ8064with the Adreno 320 crunching graphics. 2GB of RAM and a 13MP rear shooter were some of the other high end specs.

A week and a half later, we were introduced to the LG Optimus G via a leak of the phone's specs. Outside of a slightly larger screen, the specs matched up with the LG Eclipse 4G LTE. After pictures claiming to be a prototype of the LG Optimus G leaked, LG talked about how many of the phone's new features were developed in-house. While more of the information about the phone was coming directly from LG, there were still rumors flowing such as the one that had the LG Optimus G coming to Verizon as the LG Optimus Blaze.  We've also seen a series of promos from LG about the device, and its first ad.

Now we have the official word from LG that the phone will launch in South Korea next week and globally sometime in October. There are still many unanswered questions about where this model will end up and we know that those in the states are keeping their fingers crossed.
