LAS VEGAS: PHONE MAKER LG might not have announced any new smartphones at its CES press conference on Sunday, but it did give The INQUIRER a glimpse at its flagship LG Optimus G smartphone. 

Available now in Korea and the US, the handset features a 4.7in True HD IPS touchscreen and boasts a 1.5GHz processor and Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich mobile operating system - with an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in the works.

There's also a 13MP rear camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera and a 2,100mAh battery, which boasts 13 hours of talk time. LG also tells The INQUIRER that the Optimus G can be charged 800 times before losing its charge retention, 300 more times than most other devices. 

LG was unable to tell us whether the LG Optimus G will be coming to the UK, but hinted that it will be bringing 4G LTE devices to Blighty later this year. µ
