Based on Google's Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, the new mobile phone is expected to become one of the flagship models that LG will bring to shelves in its attempt to gain more market share and match the devices launched by rival vendor Samsung.
Apparently, the phone maker will bring the new LG Optimus EX to shelves in its home land market, on the airwaves of wireless carrier SK Telecom.
The new device reportedly packs features and capabilities that will put it close if not in line with the Samsung Galaxy S II, one of the best selling handsets on the South Korean market at the moment.
The handset is said to include a large four-inch IPS touchscreen display that will boast a WVGA resolution, a 700-nit NOVA panel that will clearly differentiate it from similar devices.
Moreover, it should include a fast 1.2GHz application processor inside, a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 ship, paired with a ULP GeForce (AP25) GPU and capable of offering increased performance capabilities to all users.
The mobile phone will pack 1GB of RAM when launched, along with 8GB of internal memory, and a microSD memory card slot through which users will be able to add up to 32GB of external storage into the mix.
On the back, it will include a five-megapixel photo snapper with auto focus that can offer 1080p video recording capabilities.
The LG Optimus EX measures 118.0 x 63.4 x 9.65 millimeters (4.64 x 2.49 x 0.38) and weighs in at 127 grams (4.48 ounces ), while packing a 1,500mAh battery inside.
Rumor has it that the new device will arrive on shelves at SK Telecom in two color flavors, namely Black & Sliver and White & Champagne Gold.
For the time being, no details on the phone's arrival on other markets around the world have been unveiled, though chances are that it will see an international release.
