LG announces Optimus G, surprises analysts and customers

The Korean tech giant LG has officially announced the Optimus G smartphone, which the company claims is the most powerful LG smartphone to date.

Despite Optimus G specs have been on the Internet for the past few days LG managed to pull an ace out of its sleeve and surprise customers and analysts alike by debuting a new and unexpected display technology – an integrated touch technology that many analysts believe is LG’s version of in-cell technology. Along with the G2 Touch Hybrid Display technology – which gets rid of the gap between the LCD and outer glass – the technology serves to make the device’s display much thinner, resulting in the smartphone’s overall thickness of only 8 mm.

The Optimus G will be available in Korea next month with international availability expected later this year. Pricing is unknown.
