Dallas, Texas, October 03, 2012

AT&T* continues to expand its wide array of 4G LTE smartphones with its latest offering, the LG Optimus G™.  Optimus G delivers a perfect combination of mobile processing performance, powerful multimedia, wireless connectivity and power efficiency all packed in a clean and elegant 8.45 millimeter thin design with a Crystal Reflection pyramid patterned back.

LG Optimus G’s cross-tasking takes multi-tasking to the next level with the ability to complete complex tasks simultaneously with features like QSlide, QuickMemo and Dual Screen Dual Play.  QSlide™ allows you to text or browse the web all without navigating away from the video you are watching.  QuickMemo™ allows users to write, draw, or jot a memo directly on any captured screen for sharing instantly with others as an attachment or a URL.  Dual Screen Dual Play shares content with other electronic devices, such as televisions and computers, freeing up the on-device display for other activities, like browsing the web.

Optimus G includes Qualcomm's 1.5 GHz Quad-Core CPU Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage memory (expandable up to 80GB with a micro SD card) and a 2100 mAh Li-Polymer battery to keep up with your cross-tasking needs.

Shooting pictures like a pro is even easier with the LG Optimus G’s 8MP camera that offers advanced imaging features like:

  • Zero shutter lag,
  • Live Shot, to capture simultaneous video and still images, and
  • Time Catch Shot, which takes the perfect shot even if the shutter was pressed at the wrong time.

Both images and video appear crystal clear on the 4.7” True HD IPS Plus display. The Live Zooming feature enhances the video-watching experience, allowing you to zoom in up to five times while the video is being streamed.

“The LG Optimus G lets our customers work and play as hard as they want with one of our first quad core processor designed to deliver a great multitasking experience,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president – Devices, AT&T.  “We think customers will really enjoy having the power of a computer in the palm of their hand.”

AT&T customers have access to the nation’s largest 4G network**, covering 275 million people. AT&T has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul. That means AT&T customers are able to enjoy a widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G experience on their compatible device as they move in and out of LTE areas. With smartphones on other carriers’ networks, when you travel outside of their LTE coverage area, you may be on a much slower 3G network.
