Good news for all Sprint subscribers looking forward to owing a LG Optimus G.
Per reports, Sprint is currently offering a buy-one-get-one (BOGO) deal for all its users involving the LG Optimus G smartphone.
Often tagged as the older brother of Nexus 4, the Optimus G is actually a good Android-based smartphone and the new deal may sound sweet to all those who are currently subscribed to Sprint and looking forward to own the device.
The Optimus G is available at Sprint for $199.99, and when users buy one, they’ll automatically get the other similar smartphone for free. As expected, each device will require to be activated with a new two-year contract, and the user will still have to pay $199.99 for the first handset to get the second one free of charge. However, the deal can seem like a good one for those who are shopping for a brand new smartphone, or even gifting one.
“Multi-taskers who crave the ultimate in speed and productivity from a tech-savvy Android device featuring Ice Cream Sandwich. Experience enhanced performance with improved image processing and increased application responses,” the official Sprint site states.
“Platinum certified, this phone meets the highest level of environmental performance established by UL Environment.”

Additionally, the LG Optimus G Pro, the soon to be released successor of the Optimus G, is being heavily leaked on the Internet for quite some time now. The device came into contention after LG showcased two smartphones at the CES - LG Optimus G and Optimus V2.
Per a Phone Arena report, the Optimus G Pro is said to feature a 5.5-inch full-HD IPS-LCD screen (1080x1920), alongside a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM. Phone Arena also states that there will be a 13-megaxiel rear camera on board along with a 2-megaixel camera on the front.
