South Korean handset maker LG and Canadian carrier Rogers have already the upcoming availability of the Optimus G on the operator's airwaves.

However, it appears that SaskTel plans to offer the LG Optimus G. The information comes straight from LG Canada's site and confirmed the smartphone will soon arrive at Rogers, TELUS, Bell and Sasktel.

Obviously, additional carrier may offer the Optimus G in the following months, but these four are the one ones to launch the smartphone in November.

Although there's no word on the phone's availability or pricing options at SaskTel, Rogers already announced it will launch the Optimus G for as low as $129.99 CAD (100 EUR) with a new three-year agreement.

In addition, Rogers customers will also be able to purchase the smartphone for $599.99 CAD (465 EUR) off-contract.

'We're still expecting to see which version of Optimus G will be released in Canada especially given the fact that LG announced two different variants of the smartphone in the United State.

Still, we know for certain the device will be equipped with a quad core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, which will be complemented by a powerful Adreno 320 graphics processing unit and no less than 2GB of RA.

Unfortunately, it's unclear whether or not the Canadian model will be shipped with microSD card slot for memory expansion. If not, the Optimus G will pack 32GB of internal memory, but if it will feature microSD card slot the smartphone will only come with 16GB storage.

LG Optimus G will also boast a superb 4.7-inch True HD IPS+ capacitive touchscreen displays that supports 768 x 1280 pixels resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass 2 coating.

Keep in mind that even if the smartphone will be delivered with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform at launch, LG already announced a Jelly Bean update for Optimus G is already in the works.
