LG presents short videos to show off its eagerly awaited beast, the LG Optimus G
LG has one of the most anticipated smartphones in the works with its LG Optimus G. To add to the buzz, the Korean manufacturer has released a number of short videos about the phone. One video focuses on the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor under the unit's hood. According to the video, this processor offers 40% greater performance compared to current quad-core processors with three times better graphics and improved power efficiency.

The screen on the LG Optimus G is the first G2 Touch Hybrid display which results in a screen 30% thinner than the current technology and images appear to be right under the user's fingerprints. The LG Optimus G will be equipped with the next generation lithium-polymer battery developed from LG's own labs. In fact, LG has previously made it clear that there is a high degree of vertical integration.

The latest word we have on the device is that it will be available for Verizon customers as the LG Blaze with pre-orders starting at the end of October and a launch date of November 16th. The device is expected to be priced at $299.99 with a two-year contract. It should be available in black, white and in a special brushed metal edition.

Nothing like competition to provide features to the market.

Four new great Android phones coming soon! Galaxy Note 2, Droid Razr HD MAXX, LG Optimus G, and the HTC 1080p phone. Nice!

I don't think there's another nexus device to appear not until 2013. Google usually unveil a new nexus device whenever there's a new iteration of the android OS. Given the fact that nexus 7 has been released, another nexus device(a smartphone) might not be plausible not until 2013. but if ever google will again release a new smartphone nexus, I would rather have a new xperia nexus. That would be great I think. A well integrated software to hardware device like xperia T and TX that beats most of the quadcore devices that are present as of now.

It/they will probably be announced on November 5th because it will be Android's birthday then.

True that. I wonder how many of the new toys will ship with JB? G-Note II and LG seem to be confirmed for JB. HTC? RAZR HD I don't think so.

Yeah. So far, if I cancel my contract, I'm choosing between the Optimus G or the G-Note on VZW. Just have to see how the battery compares to the HD MAXX.

I'm not into specs really but Nokia Lumia 920 has 600 nits luminance and 332 ppi pixel density so whats the fuss about "for the first time" for this LG ?

SGS3 has 330 nits and in gsmarena is THE BEST in sunlight test visibility (except 808 with biga$$ pixels)

My Optimus Black has 700 nits of brightness, and it's way older than the Lumia 920.

Too bad LG dropped Microsoft, and it doesn't exist a decent OS for desktops from others then Microsoft and Apple, - Ubuntu still has too many bugs and chrome OS isn't for desktops. What I am trying to say is that if you use Windows 8 and a Windows Phone 8, you'll probably have it easier when it comes to syncing the devices calendars, and other stuff like that. (Same for Apple).

in android you can have everything synced automaticly from phone to the google, dropbox or whatever and great option to browse thru it on pc mac or another device!

It's easier to use microsoft if you already use hotmail and skydrive + mocrosoft office, please think before commenting next time dumbasses ;)

i have all of that, but since my devices are google, i use Drive and such. You can set drive to automatically sync anything you download from the internet. So when I get on my school site and DL the latest powerpoint set, Drive sees it and syncs it to my devices automatically. Sharing notes with other classmates is beyond easy, and doing group study guides in real time with multiple users on PCs, tablets, and phones is a breeze.

the lg optimus 4x hd was the competitor to the galaxy s3 this one is actually a competitor to samsung galaxy s4 and in the first case lg lose in the 2. lg will lose too.. lg was often the first phone with a new technologie (first dualcore processor) but lg have never been the best.. and the software of lg is not so good... samsung and htc are better.. but yeah its right that this phone will be a beast but u will see the galaxy nexus 2 will beat the s**t out of this phone

"but u will see the galaxy nexus 2 will beat the s**t out of this phone" Who told you that next Nexus device will be from Samsung ? Maybe it will be from LG and what you will say then ?

lol there have been many nexus devices non of these were like the galaxy nexus right? google would be realy silly if the dont make galaxy nexus 2 right? if i was ggogle and i know that the galaxy nexus was the best nexus phone till now i would ask samsung 4 a nexus 2 but its still possible that many nexus devices are in production but im almost shure that the best will be from samsung and i actually like htc, samsung, lg moto and so on but if u compare it samsung managed to put the most consumer wishes together htc - not msdslot no removable battery lg - software was not as good as htc or samsung and i prefer amoled ofer isp display samsung tried realy to put real innovations in this phone smartstay directcall and so on... so i have only one choice for myself and it is samsung but i like almost every androidphone producer and even nonandroid the nokia l 920 is realy good but there is something missing for my favor... but i respect everyone who made another decision and i say its ok today almost every phone is quit on the same level.. but i hate apple i would never recommend someone to buy a iphone. and u will see the iphone 5 will have only minor updates.. and the samelooking ios and almost samelooking device
