As we enter the holiday shopping season it feels like we see another “fastest Android phone” announced every other week. However, this year it is pretty clear that the fastest Android phones will be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon S4 Pro chip. So far we have seen Xiaomi and LG announce Android phones with this new quad-core chip, but we only expect that LG will bring a device to the United States.
LG already announced their new Optimus G last week, and now they are hyping it up with a new teaser video. The flagship device will feature a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro with Adreno 320 GPU, new battery technology from LG Chem, 13.0 megapixel camera, and a 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPS+ Display with 320ppi high pixel density (1280×768 pixels) and Stripe RGB IPS Panel.
Most of our audience prefers Android phones from Samsung, HTC, or Motorola, so LG has a huge opportunity to win over some new customers. The last time we hyped up a LG device was the T-Mobile Optimus 2X. It looked great on paper, but the final product shipped with all kinds of hardware and software issues, and it left LG with a bad reputation among the hardcore crowd.
If LG really does release a Nexus device as rumored, they could once again have the best Android device on paper. I’m not sure how many users would switch over from their favorite handset maker, but LG is making a strong case to at least demand their attention.
Watch the teaser and let us know what you think. Is there any way you would consider purchasing an Android phone from LG?
