Anybody waiting to own an LG Optimus G but set back due to financial issues could find hope from this.
Per reports, Amazon Wireless is now offering the AT&T version of the Optimus G for just $49, provided interested users don't mind signing a contract.
This is an interesting deal for people who have wanted to own the device for quite some time, considering the smartphone is usually available for $599.99. Moreover, it could also serve as a deserving alternative to the popular LG Nexus 4, with the low cost coming as a bonus.
Basically, the LG Nexus 4 and the LG Optimus 4G are pretty similar devices although there is a difference in their external designs. Internally, however, both devices have the same specifications except for the stock Android on the Nexus and the availability of 4G LTE support on the Optimus G.
"While you will need to sign a two-year contract with AT&T, $49 is quite a steal if you don't mind dealing with a customized version of ICS over stock Android Jelly Bean. The promotional $49 pricing is applicable both for new and existing AT&T customers," Android Authority writes.
For new and willing subscribers, the device is currently being offered with three plans:
Existing customers, however, can also get the device by adding it to their current plan. The users will still have to choose the plan the device will be using which is quite similar to that being offered to new subscribers.
For those who might have forgotten about the device's specifications, this AT&T version of the Optimus G comes with a powerful 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 2 GB RAM. Moreover, there is 32 GB onboard memory with a 2100 mAh Li-Polymer battery.
The 4.7-inch device with True HD-IPS + LCD capacitive touchscreen runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich, and sports an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, alongside 1080p HD video recording.
For such amazing specifications, it seems, users won't mind paying the $49 and get it from Amazon Wireless. However, everything depends on whether the user will agree with the contract agreement.
