LG: Optimus G Hitting U.S. Shores in November

In case you were wondering, the LG Optimus G will arrive on U.S. soil some time in November. No carrier partners have been announced for the beastly phone, but since it’s an LTE device, that at least narrows it down to Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, doesn’t it? We are hoping to find out for sure tomorrow, when LG and Qualcomm take the stage in NYC to talk about the device.

    quadcore LTE in the U.S. No I still don’t think so. This is at most dualcore LTE. And for Sprint. Wasn’t there a model leaked months ago. Definitely not AT&T. Those idiots just released the godawful LG Escape this past week. They only release 1 new Android feature phone at a time from non-Samsung carriers.

    Now this is an edge to edge phone

    I hope for LG they get a winner this time. It sounds like a beast of a phone. They have had a couple tough years with some marginal devices. I’d be on board if this sounds as good as its specs.

    Video of it in action in Korea. This looks smoother and much better than my GSIII…….sadly lol. Only thing that irks me is the non-removable battery, but if the new battery tech is good it hopefully will last all day.

    So how is this not being sued by Apple?? Looks like an iPhone only better!

  • Mario Mendez

    LG steppin it up

    Lets hope it doesn’t lose any of that quad core juiciness during customs!

  • Jeremy Gentry

    knowing LG’s horrible track record with updates, i won’t be purchasing ANY LG phones reguardless of spec/coolness factor

  • Paul

    If HTC doesn’t announce the dlx soon, they are gonna regret it. This is its main rival.

  • Zach Armstrong

    I bet it will be on Verizon since they seem to love LG.

    • MKader17

      They also left them plenty of real estate for a nice big VERIZON.

        While hope this comes to Verizon, I may be asking too much that they don’t tarnish the screen with that hideous checkmark logo. I’d be willing to except the bloatware instead of the vzw tattoos.

        • Zach Armstrong

          Verizon overbrands their phones too much with the Verizon and 4G logo.

      • Jackson

        The bottom is on screen keys literally maybe 2 mom of room now on the back there is pole try of room

  • Apostrafee

    Any way this is running stock 4.1?

    • Stevedub40

      It has LG’s new UX

      • rodney11ride

        yeah but didnt that mean just a skin over android? not a complete operating system?

    if this has unlockable bootloader this would be one hell of a phone to have. specs are really nice!

    • PC_Tool

      Specs on the Spectrum were pretty nice too (kicks the G’Nexs ass in most benchmarks)…unlocked it the moment I got it home…not even a moderate amount of dev support to speak of. Nothing, really. Just a few remixes of the LG ROM it shipped with.

      Great device, sidelined by horrible software and zero dev support.

      The Spec would be *very* nice with AOSP JB on it…

  • Radgatt

    Not coming to Verizon, Verizon was SMART enough to choose the Intuition over this…

    Ok I hate apple products but if Apple dosent try to sue LG for making this devices “”Look like the Iphone5″” then it just shows Apple doesn’t care about patents or confusion just their own pocket books…..DROID!!!!

    • Paul

      Because it has rounded corners, or because it’s black, like an option for the iphone?

  • LiterofCola

    Isn’t a bad looking phone.

  • Bewara2009

    NO NO NO, Where’s the Nexus 2?

  • norcaldroid

    Jelly Bean! Release with Jelly Bean! Why is that so hard?

    • http://twitter.com/tooreckless

      Because, believe it or not, there is little communication between Google and manufacturing companies like LG/HTC/Samsung so when they plan to create a phone, they usually go off of what is available at the time they started…if you’re almost done getting everything right on your creation and you’re trying to meet your deadline and you go online to find out that Google just released a new version of Android, what do you do?

      You put it out anyway and try your best to start working on the update.

    • paul_cus

      You actually expect something from LG to launch with the most recent version of Android?

  • Booyah

    Definitely looks nice.

  • ben

    Shores?

    • kselby

      Is the correct word to use.
