The Optimus G is one of the best-featured Android smartphones launched by LG. For unknown reasons, the South Korean handset maker decided to limit the availability of the smartphone to a handful of countries.

So far, the Optimus G was launched in the United States, Canada, Japan and South Korea. The good news is LG plans to launch the device in more than 50 countries in the coming weeks.

In fact, the company has just confirmed the smartphone will be released in Singapore at the end of January, followed soon by other markets worldwide.

Unfortunately, LG does not reveal any details regarding the phone’s availability and pricing options, probably due to the rollout scale.

However, we believe LG will first target markets where LTE services are available for customers, followed by the rest of the countries where 4G network is not an option.

LG Optimus G was launched on the market back in November with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system onboard.

The smartphone recently received a Jelly Bean upgrade in South Korea, but we can safely assume the update will be deployed in other countries soon.

Aside from that LG Optimus G is pretty impressive when it comes to specs. The smartphone is equipped with a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, 2GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of internal memory.

It also sports a 4.7-inch True HD IPS capacitive touchscreen display that supports 768 x 1280 pixels resolution, as well as an 8-megapixel rear photo snapper.

“As 4G LTE availability expands on a global scale, we will leverage our strong LTE technology and expertise to offer consumers the best 4G experience through our devices. With the latest Jelly Bean OS and improved software, Optimus G will make a strong case for the title of ultimate premium 4G LTE smartphone,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
