Today LG announced that their flagship Android smartphone, the Optimus G, was coming to AT&T and Sprint. No pricing or availability was revealed, but we expect those details should be coming from the carriers soon. We expect the LG Optimus G to be the fastest Android phone available this year, as it features Qualcomm’s new 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip.

“LG Optimus G is the culmination of cutting-edge technologies provided by LG’s class-leading global entities,” said James Fishler, senior vice president, marketing and go-to-market operations, LG Electronics USA. “Drawing upon expertise from the LG Mobile Communications Company, LG Display, LG Chem and LG Innotek , we have carefully designed a new superphone  that encourages users to step beyond everyday boundaries and explore a limitless world of power and creativity.”
