Sydney, Jan. 22, 2013 -- LG Electronics Australia today announced it will bring its flagship smartphone, the Optimus G, exclusively to Telstra customers in March.

Optimus G is LG’s most advanced smartphone to date and was recognised at this month’s Innovations Design and Engineering Awards at the Consumer Electronics Show for its technical specifications, aesthetics and design.

“With the launch for LG’s new ‘Superphone’ scheduled for March, we are very excited to announce our partnership with Telstra. 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 another 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,” said Lambro Skropidis, General Marketing Manager at LG Australia.

Whether users need functionality or are looking for a fun experience, the Optimus G has it all. It includes a high-resolution 13.0MP camera and unique user experiences such as QuickMemo, QSlide, Dual Play/Dual Screen, Zerogap Touch, and a high-density 2,100mAh battery that provides longer talk time.

Andrew Volard, Director, Telstra Mobile, said 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.”

Since its introduction in the third quarter of 2012 to the Korean market, and following that, the US and Japanese markets, the Optimus G has received many accolades including the Korea Electronic Show (KES) Innovation Award for its Zerogap Touch technology, which improves the durability and clarity of the display by eliminating air gaps found in other touch-screens and an iF Design Product Award in November 2012.

Pricing and availability will be announced closer to the launch. For more information on LG’s Optimus G, Telstra customers can go to Registrations of interest will be available soon.
