LG Optimus G not in Australia until 2013
LG unveiled its Optimus G mobile phone on September 18th but the handset will not reach Australia until 2013.
The smartphone will be released in the company's home country of Korea next week and will go on sale in "key global markets" next month, but LG has planned the Australian release for early 2013.
It will be the manufacturer's flagship mobile phone and Ben Glimmerveen, head of LG mobile communication, said: "The Optimus G is a premium, groundbreaking device; not only in the history of LG, but also in the smartphone industry."
The hardware is high-end: a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM should ensure the device is snappy.
Aussies will be able to take advantage of 4G networks thanks to LTE support and a 2,100mAh battery provides up to 335 hours of standby time.
Google's Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system powers the device. By the time it is out in Australia, users should be able to upgrade to the latest Jelly Bean platform.
