While LG is showing off the Optimus G Pro at Mobile World Congress (MWC), Australians will get their first taste of the 4.7-inch Optimus G from 12 March, when it launches exclusive to the Telstra network.

The device is now available for pre-order via Telstra, at $0 on the telco's AU$60/month plan. LG is spinning off its Formula One association to offer a pre-order competition, with anyone ordering between today and 4 March going in the draw to win an Australian Grand Prix "experience package".

The Optimus G has a 13-megapixel camera, runs on the Snapdragon S4 processor series and features a high-density 2100mAh battery. Our preview of the phone is available here, and we'll have a full review when units become available.

HTC One should be hitting shores with a full hd panel and the upgraded snapdragon 600 soc.
I think LG were stupid and same as telstra for agreeing to take the phone this late in its life.

Great phone, great hardware, but **** OS - get rid of that Android garbage. iOS is a lot better.
