LG Optimus GJ Official with Waterproof Capabilities

South Korean mobile phone maker LG Electronics has made official a new smartphone in its Optimus lineup, one that comes to the market with waterproof capabilities, namely the LG Optimus GJ.

The new device was made official in Taiwan with IXP5 and IPX7 certification, said to withstand immersion in water at one meter for up to 30 minutes. Unfortunately, LG did not offer specific info on the smartphone’s landing in more markets around the world, yet it might release it in more of them as well. The specs list of the new mobile phone includes a 4.7-inch IPS display that can deliver a 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, protected with Corning Gorilla Glass. The smartphone is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 processor, paired with 2GB of RAM, and sports 16GB of internal memory, as well as a microSD memory card slot with support for up to 64GB of additional storage space. On the back, the LG Optimus GJ features a 13-megapixel photo snapper, with support for full HD video recording, complemented by a 1.3MP front camera for making video calls.

Measuring 139.6 x 68.9 x 9.39mm and weighing 141.2 grams, the new mobile phone packs a 2280mAh battery inside and runs under Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. The new smartphone also features WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, 4G LTE support, GPS receiver, and the usual set of sensors. However, it lacks NFC capabilities, it seems. The LG Optimus GJ is said to arrive on shelves in Taiwan with a price tag of NT$17,990 ($600 / €467) attached to it, contract free. It will be released in Black and Red flavors.

The smartphone is expected to become available for purchase in Taiwan in June, ePrice reports. Apparently, LG might be set to put it on pre-order starting with June 1, and should start shipping it about two weeks later.
