LG turning things up a notch with rumored Optimus G

LG is rumored to be cranking things up a bit with their next Android smartphone, the so-called Optimus G.  According to Korean website Asia Today (translate), LG is cooking up a quad-core LTE device with a 4.7-inch IPS True HD display, 2GB RAM, and a 13-megapixel camera.

Expected to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the handset is said to feature LG Optimus UI 3.0 and will take design cues from the Optimus L series.  It’s not quite clear which processor is going to power the Optimus G however we’ve seen some calling for a quad-core Snapdragon S4 chipset.

With IFA taking place in late August and early September, we might see LG make some noise for the Optimus G.  Should that be the case, we anticipate that the U.S. might get a variant a few months from now, perhaps on Verizon or Sprint.
