AT&T LG Optimus G

The AT&T LG Optimus G release date details have been announced officially denoting that the carrier’s first LTE quad core smartphone will be up for grabs starting early November. A post on the AT&T Consumer blog points out that interested buyers can go ahead and book a unit for themselves as pre-orders have already commenced through the network provider’s website.

The handset in question first started making headlines back in August as the company’s next generation smartphone. Well, unlike some manufacturers, LG isn’t the one to keep secrets, publicly disclosing the technical aspects of its latest device. According to the conglomerate, the handset is designed with some of the ‘best technologies’ that have been developed by its sister companies including Chem, Display and Innotek.

The Optimus G is also amongst the first wave of phones to debut housing a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro SOC. Unlike the Sprint variant, this version will make its debut bearing an 8MP camera instead of a 13MP one. On the bright side, capabilities of both snappers appear to be similar including 1080p HD video capture and 4x digital zoom. There’s also a front-facing 1.3MP webcam that can record visuals in 720p resolution.

On November 2, 2012, potential buyers will be able to lay hands on the AT&T LG Optimus G in the US for $199.99, accompanied by a 2-year contract. The no-commitment price is pegged at $549.99.
