LG long awaited (and much spruiked) Optimus G, dubbed a ‘superphone’ is to get its Aussie debut tomorrow at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Arts at 8.30 am Wednesday.
LG said it is “excited” to launch the “highly anticipated superphone” kitted out with 4.7-inch HD screen, 4G, 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 13MP camera and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Its maker claims the 4G smartie is the “best Android handset ever.”
And the Android Police seem to agree saying” this is the fastest smartphone I have ever used. The Optimus G is stupidly, unbelievably, crazily fast” although branded the battery life “lamentable.”

New user experiences include QuickMemo, QSlide, Dual Screen/Dual Play, and a high-density 2,100mAh battery, and LG spruiked its “advanced 4G LTE technologies,” w hich it claims helped sell 10 million 4G phones to date.
LG is planning to get “aggressive” in its smartphone strategy as it look to steal a slice of the coveted smartphone pie, which the ‘duopoly’ of Samsung and Apple have more of less to themselves.
But there could be another LG on the way – the newly announced Optimus L5II may also be making its way down under, with LG spokesperson telling SmartHouse a local announcement will be made on the device today, which was announced globally last week.
The dual Sim 4″ LG’s Optimus L Series II is a mid tier phone with 1 GHz Single Core processor runs Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 and operates on 3G network.
