Korean device manufacture, LG Mobiles has been maintaining a low profile in India for quite some time now. But that is going to change as it plans to launch one smartphone after another in the coming months.
Amit Gujral, head- mobile device engineering and VAS group of LG, said to The Mobile Indian, “LG has been maintaining a quite profile for the last few months because we were working on big for the consumers and in November we will be launching Optimus G, LG Nexus and LG Optimus L9 in the Indian market.”
He further added, “Most of our mobile consumers have been complaining about the irregular operating system updates for their handset and we would like to assure our consumers that we have sorted out that issue and now we will be more regular with the updates.”
LG Optimus G
LG Optimus G will arrive with quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro mobile processor and will feature a 13 megapixel camera at the back.
LG Optimus G design seems a mix of LG Prada and LG Chocolate smartphone designs. It has a 4.7-inch True HD IPS PLUS display with Zerogap Touch technology touchscreen that supports 1280×768 resolution natively. That offers 320 pixels per inch pixel density, coming close to the 326 ppi pixel density of the iPhone 5.
The Optimus G also offers a ‘dual-screen, dual-play’ feature that enables watching two different contents on each screen. Of course, there is the quick note taking feature – Quick Memo as well.
The other features of the Optimus G include Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, A-GPS and DLNA support, Near Field Communication and USB 2.0 High Speed.
Not much is known about LG Nexus from official sources but a lot of websites have reported that the next Google Nexus smartphone will probably be called as the LG Nexus 4.
The LG Nexus 4 will be based on similar set of hardware specifications as the flagship Android device from LG – the LG Optimus G.
The website, Onliner.by has claimed been able to get its hands upon a sample Google Nexus 4 device and they have revealed the specifications of this highly anticipated smartphone.
According to the report, the LG Nexus 4 is based on a chip Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (APQ8064) and has 2 GB of RAM, quad-core Krait and Adreno 320 graphics processor. Exactly the same chip is used in the Optimus G but due to the new 28-nm process technology in the Nexus 4, the smartphone will consume less energy thus increasing battery life.
The LG Nexus 4 has a 4.7-inch IPS+ in-cell display with 1280Ã—768 pixels resolution. The additional glass layers have been removed for better display performance too. As opposed to what was expected earlier, the LG Nexus 4 will have a 13 megapixel rear camera in place of a 12 megapixel one and a secondary 1.3 megapixel front facing camera capable of video recording and calling in HD resolution.
Along with that the device will have 16 GB onboard storage in conjunction with a micro SD card slot for additional memory. The sample unit received by the website has 8 GB storage but that will only be limited to the sample device only.
