Earlier Monday we told you that AT&T had announced that it would be launching the LG Optimus G on November 2nd
with pre-orders starting Tuesday at $199.99 with a signed two-year pact. Now, Sprint has thrown its two cents in and has announced that its version of the phone will be released on November 11th for the same price. Pre-orders will be accepted online
starting November 1st.
Sprint's version of the LG Optimus G features a 13MP camera
Do we need to refresh your memory about this beast? Remember that 4.7 inch IPS LCD display that uses LG's True HD RGB matrix instead of a pentile display? How about that quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor working with the Adreno 320 GPU? Certainly you can recall the 2GB of RAM or the 32GB of native storage and 32GB microSD slot. Unlike the AT&T model of the phone, the Sprint variant does have that 13MP camera
on back capturing video in 1080p. The front-facing 1.3MP camera is great for self-portraits and video chats and that 2100mAh battery gives you 13 hours of talk time. And yes, Android 4.0.4 is pre-installed.
So there it is. In a nut shell, AT&T and Sprint both announced their respective launch dates for the LG Optimus G
, November 2nd and November 11th. Pre-orders start tomorrow for AT&T and November 1st for Sprint and the price is $199.99 on contract for both mobile operators. If you want this phone, you know exactly what you need to do.
