The LG Optimus G which was launched in Korea back in August last year and only started entering global markets last month is reportedly coming to our shores as early as the end of this month, reports The Mobile Indian. There is currently no word on what price range the South Korean company will sell the phone in. Previously, in October we had heard that the device will come to India in January and February and perhaps this is actually coming to fruition.

As the news of the Optimus G comes to light, LG has already unveiled the Optimus G Pro, which comes with a 1080p 5.5-inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor and a 13-megapixel camera, so the entry of the Optimus G will definitely be late in the Indian market as the device was originally launched back at IFA in August 2012.
