Quad-core LG Optimus G outed by NTT Docomo

Japanese mobile phone operator NTT Docomo has announced that it will stock the new LG Optimus G L-10E from October or November 2012 as part of its NEXT series.

The phone, which Qualcomm alluded to last week in a press statement, is LTE capable and unlike the Optimus 4X HD which it will almost certainly replace, the Optimus G won’t be using the Nvidia Tegra 3, instead opting for a new player.

It comes with a brand new chipset pair comprising of the MDM9015 LTE modem and the new Qualcomm S4 Pro (APQ8064) system on chip, a quad core monster, clocked at 1.5GHz with an Adreno 320 GPU.

The phone features 2GB of RAM, twice the amount of any top of the range smartphones currently on the market, a massive removable 2,210mAh battery, waterproof (compliant with IPX5, 7)16GB onboard storage with a microSD card slot, a 13.2-megapixel camera with a 1.3-megapixel secondary one, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
