LG Optimus G Caught In The Wild, Packs Quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro

We’re just days away from IFA 2012, and numerous hardware manufacturers are gearing up to release their newest handsets. According to a set of leaked images, LG’s incredibly powerful Optimus G is real, and is expected to be officially unveiled at the show.

The LG Optimus G (E973) features a vast array of impressive specs, including Qualcomm’s latest 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset (APQ8064), an Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Display-wise the Optimus G utilizes LG’s very own 4.7-inch IPS panel (1280 x 720) which equates to 320 ppi. Because that wasn’t enough, LG integrated a massive 13-megapixel shooter on the back of the device and a front-facing camera for video chat. The best part, you ask? This all runs on — what appears to be — a lightly-skinned version of Ice Cream Sandwich, with an update to Jelly Bean scheduled soon after launch.

If LG launches the Optimus G this week at IFA, there’s a possibility they could finally be seen as a “show winner”. Although, with Samsung announcing the Galaxy Note successor, it could be a tough battle.
