Taking over from the LG Optimus G, the LG Optimus G E975 was officially announced back in November but MWC 2012 is the first chance we've had to get hands-on with the new flagship device. The LG Optimus G E975, also known as LG Optimus G E973, is a high end touchscreen smartphone with many innovative features. This is the version of Optimus G launched in the Indian market. While the Optimus G launched in other countries came loaded with Android ICS, this version comes out of the box with Jelly Bean OS. The screen is spot on, too, with a 4.7 inch TrueHD In-Plane Switching (IPS) display using the 15:9 aspect ratio, which results in a resolution of 1280×768, a little wider than the typical 1280×720 we’re seeing on competing smartphones. With the slightly bigger display. Corning’s scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass 2 protects this element, just in case you plan on leaving it in a bag with keys, though it may not save you from a drop to the hard ground. Connections on the Optimus G include 4G LTE, as well as WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n over a dual-band antenna, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, DLNA, Near-Field Communication (NFC), GPS, and Miracast, which will only work if you have one of the Miracast boxes to plug in your TV, available as an extra. Over in the camera department, you’ll find a cutting-edge 13 megapixel autofocus camera with flash, while the front camera sits at 1.3 megapixel, perfect for those selfies. As per usual with modern smartphones, there are very few buttons, and you’ll find only a volume rocker on the left, a power button on the right, and three soft buttons back, home, and menu on the bottom front of the handset just under the screen. Ports are much the same, small in number, with only a 3.5mm jack up top and a microUSB, which also takes care of HDMI with an MHL plug on the very bottom. A microSIM tray can be ejected on the left side, and the battery rated for 2100mAh cannot be removed. The first proper premium phone we’ve seen from LG in a while, the Optimus G certainly has our attention. The Optimus G Pro is an impressive handset offering up super slick Android Jelly Bean and a top notch range of features.
