LG launches Optimus G smartphone range at MWC 2013

Since the success of the Nexus 4, LG has been making more and more powerful phones with this new line-up at MWC being the company's strongest yet

 

LG has unveiled four new smartphones at MWC 2013 including the company's new flagship handset the LG Optimus G Pro which features a 5.5-inch Full-HD screen, LTE and a quad-core processor.

The company has updated its full line of smartphones from the budget to mid-range L series all the way up to the new Optimus G which will be launching in the UK with LG's new UX range of features built on top of Android Jelly Bean.

LG Optimus G and G Pro


First up is the flagship 4G Optimus G which has clearly been modeled on the hugely successful Nexus 4 smartphone LG built for Google. Featuring a 4.7-inch 1280x768 IPS display the Optimus G comes with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 2GB RAM.

Updated with Android Jelly Bean the Optimus G will now let you make full use of Google Now, the Siri-like feature which shows you realtime local information and lets you ask questions.

You also get a whole host of new features from LG including QSlide which lets you run multiple applications at the same time changing the transparency of the application at will.

Its bigger brother, the Optimus G Pro takes things a step further with a huge 5.5-inch Full HD display and LTE connectivity, sadly this behemoth of a smartphone has only been confirmed for Korean markets so far.

LG Optimus F


The Optimus F5 and F7 are LGs answer to the problem of 4G being limited to only the high-end handsets by offering a compact package that still gives you hefty grunt in the form of a 1.2GHz and 1.5GHz dual-core processor respectively.

You'll also get two impressive displays with the F5 sporting a 256ppi 4.3-inch display and the F7 an even higher-resolution True HD 4.7-inch screen with a ppi of 312.

Both of these will be available before the summer with the F5 arriving in the second quarter and the F7 landing shortly afterwards, no word on pricing yet.

LG Optimus Vu


The 5-inch 4:3 ratio smartphone/phablet has been updated with 4G-connectivity as well as getting Android Jelly Bean and the full suite of LG UX features including QSlide and QRemote.

LG Optimus L


Last but not least are the new L Series smartphones which will boast the same software features as their bigger siblings including Android Jelly Bean and the LG UX suite of features.

What you get instead are slightly lower specs with the L7 2 sporting a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch display and under 1GB of RAM keeping it well within the bracket of being wallet-friendly.
