Sprint has already confirmed plans to add LG’s new Optimus G smartphone to its offering in the coming weeks, and the carrier is now offering a complete picture of the handset’s hardware specifications, courtesy of a newly published specs sheet.
The mobile phone will land on shelves with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with 1.5GHZ Quad-Core Krait CPU packed inside, which means that it will deliver great raw power. The smartphone
also comes with a 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPS Plus Display (1280 x 768 pixels), as well as with 2GB of RAM packed inside.
Moreover, it sports 32GB of internal memory, while being powered by a 2,100 Lithium-Ion battery that can deliver up to 13 hours talk time.
LG also packed the new handset with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity inside, as well as with Wi-Fi Hotspot, support for 3G/4G LTE networks, and built-in GPS receiver for navigation purposes.
On the back, the new LG Optimus G features a 13-megapixel photo snapper with support for full HD video recording, complemented by a 1.3MP camera on the front for making video calls.
Running under Google’s Android
4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, the new device also comes with support for the over 600,000 applications and games available for download through the Google Play Store.
Additionally, it sports a series of features and applications coming from LG, such as: - QSlide Function shows two different screens simultaneously on one display so users can quickly send an important work email while playing a graphic-intense video at the same time.
- LG QuickMemo allows users to take notes on captured documents or photos with their fingers and instantly share with colleagues as an attachment or URL.

- Photographs can be intensified with camera capabilities like Time Catch Shot, which empowers the user to choose the best photo among various shots taken before the shutter button is pressed.
- Dual Screen Dual Play not only allows mirroring between the smartphone and a TV or monitor, it also has the ability to display different content on each screen. For example, a slide presentation can be displayed on the monitor while the Optimus G shows the accompanying speaking notes.
