LG Optimus G specs leak revealing the manufacturer's most beastly smartphone yet
Back when the Apple iPhone was something new, LG was known for its featurephones. Models such as the LG "V", the LG Voyager and the LG Vu were commonly seen in the palms of mobile phone users in the States and overseas LG had a wide variety of similar models like the LG Viewty, LG ARENA and even the LG PRADA. It wasn't until the LG INCITE came to the U.S. that the Korean manufacturer had shipped a smartphone to the States.

LG's first U.S. smartphone, the LG INCITE for AT&T
Times have changed and LG has been focusing on the smartphone side of the market. If some leaked specs found in AsiaToday are legitimate, the company is working on its most powerful smartphone to date, a model that will allow LG to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S III. The device is allegedly called the LG Optimus G and for starters, it is expected to offer a 4.7 inch TrueHD (no Pentile display here) IPS screen with a quad-core processor of unknown make under the hood. 2GB of RAM will be on board this beast along with a 13MP camera. The unit will support Voice over LTE technology and the latest Optimus UI will run on top of Android 4.0.

This is similar to how LG competed against the Samsung GALAXY Note phablet. After the device had been out for a while, LG introduced its own phablet, the LG Optimus Vu which has already been released in Korea and Japan and will get a more global launch next month. As for the rumored LG Optimus G, it would be great if we could remove this from the speculation pile and see this beast on display at the upcoming IFA in Berlin at the end of this month.

We do have to add that this sounds suspiciously similar to the LG Eclipse, expected to be heading to Sprint and AT&T this October.

If the LG Optimus G does get released, will it give the Samsung Galaxy S III a run for the money?
