    Launches in Korea in September with Worldwide markets to follow

    LG Electronics has revealed its newest premium mobile device with the announcement of the Optimus G, the first LTE device featuring Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro Quad-Core processor.

    The Optimus G will be the first commercial and global smartphone to offer the Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with a Quad-Core Krait CPU, LTE supported capabilities, and the newest generation Adreno 320 GPU. The Snapdragon S4 Pro runs at 1.5GHz and features Asynchronous Symmetric Multiprocessing (aSMP), which enables each core to power up and down independently, for maximum performance with better battery life.

    Furthermore, the Adreno 320 is over three times faster than the Adreno 225 found in previous Snapdragon processors for an enhanced gaming experience with promised faster frame rates, smoother play and support for higher HD resolution displays.

    With help from LG Display, the Optimus G sports a 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPS+ Display with 320ppi high pixel density (1280×768 pixels) and Stripe RGB IPS Panel with 15:9 aspect ratio.

    The Optimus G will be the first smartphone to be equipped with LG Innotek and LG Display’s newly developed G2 Touch Hybrid Display for touchscreen panels (TSP). Thanks to the new technology, the thickness of the screen panel has been reduced and the screen itself is said to be much stronger to withstand damage from impact.

    LG Chem developed a high-density 2,100mAh battery that provides more power capacity and prolonged charging cycles. The new battery technology extended the battery lifespan to 800 cycles at 80 percent charging capabilities, much greater than the lifespan of 500 cycles in regular phone batteries.

    NTT DOCOMO will be the first to unveil a Japanese edition of the Optimus G. The global version of the device will be launched in Korea in September, followed by other markets worldwide.
