LG Optimus G Arrival Confirmed By US Carriers; Who’s Getting It?


LG’s quad-core Optimus G is ultimately destined for US shores, but just how till it get here? We’ve known to expect the phone to arrive sometime in November, after the handset launches in Japan this month, but haven’t had access to the details. The picture’s still far from complete, but a couple US carriers just made it clear that the Optimus G will be a part of their lineups in the near future.

LG released a statement confirming AT&T and Sprint as homes for the Optimus G, with AT&T separately preparing its own statement to announce the news. Unfortunately, this far out everyone involved is still unwilling to share too many details, so we still can’t narrow-down that launch window to anything more precise than November, and pricing info has yet to be revealed.

Considering the top-tier specs of the Optimus G, with its 1.5GHz quad-core S4 and 2GB of RAM, we have a general sense of the price range to expect, but will have to wait just a bit longer for confirmation.

What interesting is that the two carriers will be offering the Optimus G with different cameras; that’s not normally a distinction we see with carrier variants. AT&T’s will employ an 8-megapixel sensor, while Sprint gets a 13-megapixel rear camera.
