ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics today
announced that the high-powered LG Optimus G superphone will be available in
the United States on the AT&T and Sprint networks. As the world's first
quad-core LTE (Long-Term Evolution) smartphone with the Qualcomm Snapdragon^TM
S4 Pro processor, LG Optimus G is not only one of the fastest phones on the
market, but also one of the most powerful.



Designed to set a new standard in the industry, LG Optimus G combines LG's
leading LTE, display and energy technologies with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro
processor to create an extremely fast and incredible mobile experience.
Equipped with a high-density 2,100mAh battery and impressive 4.7-inch True HD
IPS Plus display, Optimus G users can seamlessly multitask between personal,
business and entertainment needs and go beyond the boundaries of traditional
on-the-go smartphone capabilities.

"LG Optimus G is the culmination of cutting-edge technologies provided by LG's
class-leading global entities," said James Fishler, senior vice president,
marketing and go-to-market operations, LG Electronics USA. "Drawing upon
expertise from the LG Mobile Communications Company, LG Display, LG Chem and
LG Innotek , we have carefully designed a new superphone that encourages
users to step beyond everyday boundaries and explore a limitless world of
power and creativity."

The elegant yet sleek design and the imaginative user experience displayed in
the new Optimus G are made possible thanks to a collection of technologies
from industry-leading developers in their fields. State-of-the-art display
technologies from LG Innotek and LG Display such as True HD IPS Plus and
Zerogap Touch, a unibody unit  that eliminates the gap between the glass and
the LCD panel, harmonize to offer one of the slimmest, sharpest and clearest
viewing experience yet. The new battery from LG Chem has a longer life
designed for multitasking. An ultra high-resolution, compact camera is
employed in the Optimus G to offer super sharp photos without pixilation.

Sprint and AT&T will be among the first wireless service providers in the
world to offer the LG Optimus G, which is powered by the new Qualcomm
Snapdragon S4 Pro processor – a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU processor with
Asysnchronous Symmetric Multiprocessing, which enables each core to power up
and down independently to increase performance while saving battery life.

Combined with LTE technology, the impressive processor allows users to easily
and quickly view a video while running other apps at the same time. All of
this power and functionality is housed in a light weight, eye-catching slim
body to cater to fashionable lifestyles. LG developed and patented Crystal
Reflection to give the back cover the ability to display different patterns
depending on the angle and lighting. The intricate pattern gives Optimus G a
clean finish reminiscent of a jewel.

The Optimus G creates the perfect combination of pleasure and functionality
through a unique user experience not seen on any other device. While mobile
communication, business, and entertainment are easily accommodated with the
Optimus G, the all-new device can also release one's inner artist with a wide
range of features including:

  oThe QSlide Function shows two different screens simultaneously on one
    display so users can quickly send an important work email while playing a
    graphic-intense video at the same time.
  oQuickMemo allows users to take notes on captured documents or photos with
    their fingers and instantly share with colleagues as an attachment or URL.
  oLive Zooming enhances viewing experiences by enabling consumers to zoom in
    up to five times while watching video to see small details normally hidden
    on the screen.
  oPhotographs can be intensified with camera capabilities like Time Catch
    Shot, which empowers the user to choose the best photo among various shots
    taken before the shutter button is pressed.
  oDual Screen Dual Play not only allows mirroring between the smartphone and
    a TV or monitor, it also has the ability to display different content on
    each screen. For example, a slide presentation can be displayed on the
    monitor while the Optimus G shows the accompanying speaking notes.
  oCreativity is also put to the test by the Icon Personalizer, which allows
    consumers to customize the sizes and images of their most-used apps.

  oAdvanced 13 MP or 8 MP rear-facing camera with Time Catch Shot, "cheese
    shutter" and Smart Shutter and Low Light Shot Noise Reduction
