First Look: LG's Optimus G offers a full four cores of CPU power

1:50 /

The new Optimus G from LG is the first smartphone ever to have quad-core Snapdragon S4 pro muscle. It also boasts a big 4.7-inch HD screen, and 13MP camera.

-Hi guys, this is Brian Bennett for Cnet.com and right now we're taking a first look at the Optimus G by LG. Now this device is the international global version but it is being first shown here in the U.S. for the first time in New York City and as you can tell this, it has a very large screen of 4.7 inch HD display and what really makes this device exceptional is that, it has a brand new qualcomm S4 Pro quad core chip and it will support LTE eventually as well. So hopefully, you know, that will happen soon, we're still waiting on pricing and availability. Let's take a look at device. As you can see its got Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, multiple homescreens, it's pretty quick which you'd hope with 4 cores and on back here it has a 13 megapixel camera with LED flash, also-- it's very thin, feels very light. You've got what looks to be the power button here as well as the dedicated camera button and also a headphone jack up top and what's really interesting though is since the first that's gonna be in Korea, it has a little antenna here for receiving digital television signals that's something that we don't have in the U.S. but it's kinda cool anyway. So there you have it folks, this has been a first look at the LG Optimus G. Be sure to check back soon at Cnet.com for a review.
