LG’s Optimus G flagship superphone heading to the US by November

Yesterday the folks from LG finally officially announced and released their new flagship Android smartphone, the LG Optimus G, for the Korean market. Today however LG has confirmed this new flagship smartphone will be headed to the US by November. If you loved that quad-core processor and 13 megapixel camera then don't worry, because it's coming to a US carrier soon.

According to folks on the ground we're hearing it should be traveling across the waters and arriving for the US market sometime in November. Details of the phone were originally announced last month, then fully detailed yesterday as we enjoyed some hands-on with the smartphone. While the folks from LG are stating a November US launch we've heard a few different stories. For now take a peek at the Korean model being unboxed:

According to Qualcomm, who confirmed the quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro was powering this new smartphone earlier this month, it will actually hit Korea in September and then arrive for the US in October. Maybe they know something others don't. Secondly, this device has leaked more than a few times for those in the US on AT&T.

The recent rumors are calling the 4.7-inch quad-core 4G LTE Optimus G the LG Eclipse 4G LTE for AT&T. It will feature the same massive True HD IPS+ (768x1280) display, 2GB of RAM, 13 megapixel camera, 4G LTE, and a decently sized 2,100 mAh battery. The smartphone is currently running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich but hopefully by the time it makes it stateside we'll see an update to Jelly Bean. If it indeed is coming as the Eclipse 4G LTE for AT&T we should be seeing and hearing more soon. Hit the links below for full details.
