Rugged phones may not be so popular, but it looks like waterproof higher end devices are starting to be! To compete with the Sony Xperia Z and the unreleased Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active, LG has unveiled the Optimus GJ. It’s very similar to the Optimus G, with the same quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM, 4.7″ 720p display, and 13MP camera.
The specs may technically be “last gen,” but they’re still pretty fantastic. The Optimus G performed incredibly in our testing. The device will come in black and red and will launch next month in Taiwan for $600. Hopefully it’ll come to the US to supplement LG’s current lineup, because this phone actually looks pretty good. If it was priced as a mid end device, it’d be even better. What do you think?
