LG Launching Optimus G Smartphone in Canada in November

LG Electronics is bringing its newest premium LTE-enabled smartphone, the LG Optimus G, to Canada in November 2012.

The high-end smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro Quad Core Processor and will deliver longer battery life to more efficiently run presentations, view videos or help cross-task.

Geoffrey McMurdo, Vice President Mobile Communications, LG Canada adds: “The cutting edge design and power of the LG Optimus G will set a new bar for smartphones in Canada. This device brings the best design and functionality into one device – a device that, for many, will be more powerful than their home computer.”

Korea will be the first stop on the global roll out, which begins next week, with Canada as the next stop. Several carrier and retail partners will participate in the launch including Bell Canada, Rogers, TELUS, Best Buy, Future Shop, Tbooth wireless, The Source, WIRELESSWAVE, and WIRELESS etc.

Users will no doubt enjoy the Dual Screen, Dual Play feature, which allows it to display different content on each screen wirelessly. Also, Live Zooming will enhances the video watching experience as users can zoom up to five times while the video is being streamed.

While initially operating on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, LG says an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is expected in early Q2 of 2013.
