South Korean electronics firm LG has officially rolled out its much-anticipated Optimus G smartphone to the Indian market.
At ₹34,500, the price of the Android smartphone is on the more expensive side as against the prices exhibited on online retailers. LG Optimus G was spotted on various e-retailers last week with a price tag of ₹30,990.

The smartphone sports a 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus display with 1280x768 pixel resolution and is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor. It runs on Android Jelly Bean operating system, packs a 13-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video recording capabilities at 30fps and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
Other specifications and features include 2GB RAM, 32GB built in memory, connectivity support for GPRS, EDGE, HSPA, WIFI, Bluetooth, NFC, and USB, full HD video playback, QSlide, Qtranslator, Quick Memo, ECO Mode, Path Keypad, Talk Back, Back-up Application, Live Zoom, Document Viewer and Video Editor App. The smartphone packs a 2100 mAh battery which is claimed to give 15 hours of talk time and 14 days of standby time.
