LG Optimus G to feature battery with longer life cycle and brighter True HD display
On Saturday, we passed along to you some photographs of what was alleged to be a prototype of the LG Optimus G. This is the device that LG is counting on to compete with top shelf models like the Samsung Galaxy S III. While LG didn't mention the device by name, it has confirmed that its new flagship model will have the new quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor that marries the speed of a quad-core processor with LTE connectivity.

LG has also added some of its own home-cooking to the phone, including a battery that uses new technology from LG Chem to offer a lifetime of 800 charges instead of the usual 500, without any changes in size or weight from traditional smartphone cells. But wait, there's more. LG Display, which produces, hold on, it will comes to us...ah, displays, has a new True HD IPS+ screen. The Korean tech giant says that this display is clearer than AMOLED screens and uses less power. The True HD IPS+ panel has a pixel density of 320ppi and resolution of 768 x 1280. There is no Pentile display here as the display uses the Stripe RGB matrix. The screen presents 470 nits of brightness while using 70% less power when it displays a white background and doesn't have the screen burn-in problem that occassionally happens with an AMOLED display.

LG Innotek together with LG Display has developed the G2 Touch Hybrid Display. This is the result of increasing R&D spending on touchscreen technology, and gets rid of the gap between the glass and LCD panel seen in today's touchscreen devices. The result is a 30% thinner touchscreen with an image that appears to touch your finger without a glass barrier.

With all of this vertical integration in the new LG flagship smartphone, it seems that LG has developed a model that not only will compete with other flagship units, but could surpass them in many ways.
