    LG Optimus Blaze (Optimus G) Pre-Release and Speculation Thread

    I got an email today about an LG Optimus Blaze that may be coming to Verizon in a few months, and would be similar to the Optimus G. I've posted info about it here, also will take advantage of Verizon's upgraded LTE+ (LTE Advanced) network.

    I have an upgrade in early October... I am holding out for this phone over getting the Samsung galaxy S3.

    Thoughts? Worth it? I've read a couple other things an end of Oct or early Nov release date?

    1.7 ghz, quad core, adreno 320 gpu, 2 gigs ram, 13mp rear, 1.3 front

    This or the HTC phone with similar specs, just a higher res screen. The only disappointing thing about these 2 phones possibly is the non 16:9 aspect ratio. Videos will just be depressing with those bright black bars on LCD screens.

    Well that and the htc phone might not have a removable battery or might be super thick if it does.

    Both should definitely be super powerful and hopefully will get lots of development though.

    Any comments on this phone versus the Note II?

    Got to keep in mine the Optimus Blaze/G are smartphones, with 4.7" screen and no stylus, while the Note line is a pbablet with larger screen and stylus.
    They are targeted for two different audiences.

    FAUguy that is true. Perhaps I should have asked why one would select ths phone over the Note II, RAZR Maxx, etc.

    So it looks like the Optimus G for AT&T will have an 8MP camera, while the Sprint version (and overseas model) will have the 13MP camera. Hopefully the one for Verizon will stay with the 13MP cam.

    Will the 13Mp sensor be better than the 8 Mp one?

    ". . . that is the question."
    Perhaps sensor issues are the reason ATT has been reported as sticking with 8mp?


    Interesting, albeit incomplete, GNote II comparison:
    http://www.phonearena.com/phones/com...ones/7494,7492
    Absence of SD info an obviously major drawback. This is potentially a superior unit, but lack of SD is a deal-breaker for me on any handset.


    This mostly echos OP's link but I'm a little surprised it hasn't yet been posted here:
    http://www.androidauthority.com/lg-o...vanced-114339/

    So, nothing more on release timing or the quad-core Krait? The "end of October" is just ten days away.

    John says that neither one is great, but thinks the 8MP one looked better.

    Does this phone come with locked boot loader?

    Almost certainly. Question is, will it be unlockable? And will developers care enough to bother much with an LG phone?

    The Nexus 4 uses the exact same hardware the Opitmus G. Radios aside, it wouldn't be a huge stretch to port nexus roms.
