Seoul: LG Electronics Inc unveiled its latest high-end smartphone packed with powerful hardware upgrades on Tuesday.
The Optimus G boasts a 13 megapixel camera which a user can instruct to take snaps by talking to it, plus a 4.7-inch screen with a sharper picture quality than both the iPhone and Samsung's Galaxy S III.
Powered by Qualcomm's quad-core Snapdragon processor, the Optimus G will work on superfast mobile networks and be able to carry out several functions at once, such as showing a television broadcast and simultaneously sending text messages or searching the web.
LG's Optimus G, which uses Google's Android platform, will go on sale next week in South Korea for 1 million won, and later in Japan and the United States.
