Yesterday my colleague Joe Wilcox wrote “AT&T starts LG Optimus G preorders Oct. 16, sales Nov. 2,” but today Sprint announced that the LG-made quad-core power-house is coming its way, just like the controversial Samsung Galaxy Note II “phablet”.
Unlike the AT&T variant the LG Optimus G will come with a 13MP camera, instead of the 8MP shooter announced yesterday, and it will be available for pre-order from November 1, with sales to start on November 11. On a two-year contract the Qualcomm-powered smartphone will cost $199. Also announced is the Samsung Galaxy Note II, that will be available for purchase on October 25 for $299.99 with a two-year contract.
Sprint has yet to provide any technical details for its Samsung Galaxy Note II variant, but it’s fair to assume it will sport the same specifications as the model originally introduced by Samsung almost two months ago since it was announced with 4G LTE support. The US carrier’s customers can now choose between two incredibly powerful quad-core Android smartphones and have high data speeds as well.
