The 4G Android smartphone is LG's most advanced hardware to date. It features a 4.7-inch IPS display at 1280x768 resolution, a Snapdragon S4 processor (1.5GHz quad-core), a 13.0 megapixel camera, 32GB of memory and a solid 2100mAh battery. The screen has been lauded for introducing "Zerogap Touch" technology that removes the air gap between screen and touch components, offering a screen with greater clarity than most.

It will launch running Android 4.1 Jellybean.

The Optimus G has been available in Korea since September, so fans of the hardware will have seen almost six months pass before it is to hit a local carrier. A March launch also puts the handset's arrival beyond this year's Mobile World Congress, which will see many companies announce newer hardware that may convince customers to wait a little longer for something coming later in the year.

No final pricing has been announced.
