LG’s Optimus G Will Hit LTE Markets In 50 New Countries Starting In Late January

LG’s Optimus G might not have gotten the same attention as the Nexus 4, but it’s the cream of LG’s 2012 crop. And to that end, the company has just announced that it will roll out the Optimus G smartphone globally to ove 50 new countries in the coming months.

Back in November, the Optimus G landed in the states, along with Canada, Korea and Japan. Since then LG has sold over 1 million units.

That doesn’t quite hold a candle to the 10 million Galaxy Note 2s sold or the 2 million iPhone 5 pre-orders seen in 24 hours, but it’s still a phone worthy of a global stage.

Singapore will get the Optimus G by the end of January, and then the 4.7-inch beast will makes its way to other LTE-ready markets across the world.

The Optimus G has a pretty impressive spec sheet, including a 1080p HD IPS display, a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel camera. Of course, the G also comes with 4G LTE support and will be upgraded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right out of the box.

Don’t forget, though, that the Optimus G Pro, the original G’s 5-inch 1080p successor, is just around the corner.

There’s no word yet on country-by-country pricing or availability for the Optimus G.
