LG Optimus G officially coming to the US in Q4, different carrier versions in tow

LG Optimus G officially coming to the US in Q4, different carrier versions in store
LG just confirmed today at its press event in New York that the first brand-name handset with quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset and LTE connectivity will be hitting US carriers in Q4. 

Previously we've heard November, and that's a good ballpark estimate, considering that LG plus carriers want to catch the busiest shopping time of the year, which will pit it directly against phones like the Galaxy Note II and Lumia 920, also expected around that time, not to mention the current Android darling Galaxy S III, or Apple's finest.

The quad-core monster with record-shattering Adreno 320 graphics, 4.7" in-cell touch display, and 13MP camera with plenty of photography tricks up its sleeve, will likely sport slightly differing specs on the different carriers, said LG. Hopefully all of them will include the patented Crystal Reflection glass back of the Optimus G.

These different carrier versions might very well affect mostly the camera department, as there is an option with 8MP cam, which is flush with the back of the unibody Optimus G, and likely cheaper, plus a 13MP variant, which word around the camp fire is the one heading to Verizon as the Blaze. For more info on the best Android can offer, read our thorough preview of the LG Optimus G.
