Belated arrival

The LG Optimus G was originally slated for an Australian release in December last year, but was delayed due to testing requirements.  

"The Optimus G will undergo a range of testing and ranging to meet specific Australian requirements and network frequencies, hence the longer testing time," an LG spokesperson told CRN at the time.

The phone was released in various overseas markets during the third quarter of 2012.
