20 LG logoA couple of days ago, LG launched a new website which was basically dedicated to its upcoming LG Optimus G Android handset, probably LG’s most powerful Android handset to date. The website did confirm several features, such as its quad-core capabilities, although other specs such as its screen size, camera, memory, design, etc. remain to be seen. However in a recent press release, LG has apparently confirmed the display of the upcoming handset and has put it at 1280×768, giving the phone’s display a pixel density of 320ppi. LG has also confirmed that the display will be a True HD IPS+ Display and claims it is sharper than AMOLED which is probably a dig at its competitor, Samsung, who usually uses AMOLED displays as one of the features to market their phones with.

Additional details of the upcoming device includes a new battery which LG claims is 60% more efficient and will have a charge cycle of 800, which is approximately 300 more than the average smartphone battery. We expect LG to unveil all the details and the design of the phone at IFA, so if you’d like an alternative to all the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X Android phones out there, perhaps the LG Optimus G might be a phone worth keeping an eye out for.
