The South Korean company, LG, confirmed that their flagship smartphone Optimus G will be sold in Australia exclusively by Telstra. But the device is not yet available until March, and its launch has been delayed due to required network testing.
Lambro Skropidis, general marketing manager at LG Australia, said, "Telstra 4G is the perfect complement for the Optimus G, a smartphone that represents the very best that LG offers in innovation and technology, and one that is sure to be a great success with consumers. This isn't just high-performance phone with the latest bells and whistles; it's a collaboration of some of the best component makers on the planet coming together for a singular cause: to develop a smartphone that truly stands out from its competitors and offers consumers practical features in line with LG's commitment to making lives better."
The director of Telstra Mobile, Andrew Volard, also said that Telstra was looking forward to bringing Optimus G to Australia's largest 4G-enabled network. "Optimus G is a phenomenal smartphone that combines superb build quality, a beautiful 4.7-inch display and latest quad-core processor technology. When paired with Telstra's high-speed 4G coverage - which is available in more than 100 metropolitan and regional areas across the nation - it's a high performance package we know our customers will love."
