Details on LG Optimus G leak prior to IFA; would make for a good Nexus

At IFA Berlin this year, we expect to see several different high-end smartphones on display from a variety of manufacturers. One such device is the mysterious Optimus G from LG.

Today marks the first time we’ve heard the name Optimus G, and already we have a handful of rumored specs tied to the device. According to Asia Today, the LG Optimus G is a 4.7-inch device with an IPS True HD display, quad-core processor, 13-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM and access to voice over LTE running Android 4.0, with LG’s Optimus UI 3.0 on top. As far as how the Optimus G looks, we don’t have any pictures yet, but it’s rumored to take after the Optimus L family of devices.

The Optimus G is expected to release in LG’s domestic market sometime next month. We’re not sure when it will come to the US, but when it does, it may not launch as just any old carrier device.

Earlier this afternoon, a DoCoMo fall roadmap leaked showing several different models of Nexus phones. Among them was an LG device pegged as the Optimus Nexus. This is total speculation, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Optimus Nexus turn up as an Optimus G variant. Quad-core processor, 4.7-inch HD display, 2GB of RAM; sounds like it would make for a good Nexus to me.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for more information on the Optimus G as IFA draws near.
