LG launches the Optimus G smartphone

The LG Optimus G has been in the news lately but yesterday the Korean tech giant officially launched the smartphone, putting an end to all the rumors and speculation.

Just as expected the Optimus G is one fine smartphone coming with all kinds of tech wonders and nice specs. Don’t expect anything else out of the already rumored specs though – the Optimus G comes with Android 4.0 (which is a bit disappointing) and no current plans for upgrade to Jelly Bean, a 13 MP rear camera, the ability to run two applications at the same time on the same display, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB RAM and 32 GB of on-board storage. The smartphone also boasts a 4.7-inch display at 1280 x 768 pixels in a 15:9 aspect ratio. There’s a 1.3 MP front camera too and support for 2G, 3G, 4G, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, aGPS, MHL and NFC as well as a 2100 mAh battery that should power your Optimus G just fine during the day. An update to Jelly Bean is also said to be in the works.

So far so good, but the 13 MP camera deserves a little more attention – it also features a smart shutter that pays attention to camera vibrations or the movement of the subject and adjusts the shutter speed accordingly to get the most in-focus shot possible. It also has features such as “time catch shot” and “cheese shutter,” which activates the shutter via voice commands such as when the subjects say the word “cheese”. The camera can also reduce noise in low-light shooting situations.

The Optimus G hits shelves in Korea next week and will become available around the world later this year. Pricing is unknown, though.
